My Quest for the Best Challah!

Challah is one of my favourite egg breads ~ the aroma of the loaves baking is sublime, and the rich dough is incredibly tender whith just a hint of sweetness! With cold butter, and perhaps some wild berry preserves, I could easily eat a whole loaf when it’s still warm from the oven (I actually did this a few years ago!).

 

Since I couldn't find a recipe to produce the results I wanted, I created my own! I've just published it on my webzine: My Quest for the Best Challah!

 

I took this photo with a jar of my home-made caramel in the background (please see the 1st comment below for details)
