About this recipe: This recipe is a sweeter version of the classic challah. It was given to me by a friend.
This is hands-down the best bread I've ever made. Everyone goes crazy over it! The texture is dense and doughy, and the honey makes it super-sweet. I top mine with sesame seeds--simply sprinkle them on after brushing with the egg. - 08 Sep 2001 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I thought my review could use updating after using this recipe for 10 years... This is most flavorful, beautiful challah recipe I've ever used. My only change is to slightly increase the salt: I use 2 heaping teaspoons. The dough doesn't always appear to have risen sufficiently, even given extra time, but by the time it's out of the over, it looks and tastes perfect. Thank you, Rivka! - 03 Nov 2000 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
The bread didn't rise the first time so I just kneaded it again and it worked. So good and easy that I am making it with my Preschool class next week. - 16 Mar 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
