You never made challah because it seemed like more trouble than it's worth. This is simply not true and the extra loaves can be frozen in foil and will taste just made. Bakery challah just won't cut it when you can make these. The taste is absolutely uncomparable to anything you ever bought. When you run into trouble making your challah "who ya gonna call, the Challah Lady". Mrs. Heller has a hotline and the best recipes. Here's one that our family has been enjoying so much and only two eggs, yay!Just note that the recipe calls for 5 lbs. but you really need to have some extra flour on hand to add several tablespoons at a time until your dough becomes nice and smooth and not sticky or dry. Note* The secret to bread with a crusty exterior and soft interior is to place an oven-proof dish filled with hot water on the bottom of your oven and for the first 15 minutes bake your challah at 400 degrees, then remove the challahs from their pans and place them on the rack and lower to 350 and continue baking while the hot steam does its work.
