How to Make Sweet Challah

Rosh Hashanah is observed this week. A perfect excuse to attempt some Jewish bread-making!

My mother makes Challah from time to time, and it is by far one of my favorites, especially straight out of the oven (which is why I was sampling pieces at midnight). Although it has a hint of sweetness, it is delicious with all kinds of toppings: sweet or savory; hot or cold. When still warm, a few pieces of butter are just right.

I'm not going to type up the recipe because they've done it so well on this website, with very clear, detailed instructions. Try it: Famous Challah



  1. I'll try to make it...I thought your mom also had a great Challah recipe.

    Thank you for mentioning Rosh Hashanah...it's a major celebration tonight...I'll be wished a Happy New Year over Skype by my parents...it's what you get for having a Jewish stepdad :)

  2. Yes, my mom makes excellent Challah, but I like the way this recipe is written out. :) Say hello to your parents!
