[cooking] Challah

This month's King Arthur Flour bakealong recipe is challah. I've never made a braided bread before but it turned out great!

It does take a while- each rise was about 2 hours for me- bit it was worth it. 

After the initial 6-strand braid (thank goodness they linked to a video of someone doing this, so I could follow along):

After the 2nd rise and brushed with egg wash:

Lovely and tasty. Definitely a weekend project, since it takes so long. I've heard good things about turning leftover slices into french toast. Next time- this disappeared before I had to start looking for ways to use it up.

I love all the Jewish recipes I'm trying for the first time from King Arthur Flour's Bakealong challenges- babka, rugelach, challah. I'm waiting for a hamentachen challenge!
