I am fear, that I am infected with the “baking braided Bread Fever”. After baking Eggbread two weeks ago, I had to try the next braided bread from “Advanced Bread and Pastry”. The Challah is a traditional jewish holiday bread, and my recipe is, as I learned now, not correct, because ist contains dairy products. But nevertheless it is a delicious bread.
The recipe is similar to the recipe for eggbread, yielding a bread with a nice pillowlike crumb.
