Huh? and Challah Bread

OK, I made two loaves of bread today.  Same kind, one rose up the other didn’t.  I have no clue as to why.  I measured carefully, and double checked.  I think I have a gremlin in my kitchen!

Challah Bread, I need it for one of the Moose’s favorite things in the whole world; Peaches and Cream Bread Pudding.  I’ll share the recipe once it’s done.

Challah Bread Recipe

1 egg plus enough water to equal 1 cup plus 1 TBL

3-1/4 Cups bread flour

1-1/2 tsp salt

2 TBL sugar

3 TBL butter

1-1/2 tsp yeast

I use a bread maker at this point; place ingredients into your bread machine in the order it requires (mine is liquid ingredients first).  Use basic dough setting, remove when completed.  Divide into three equal parts, roll out into ropes approx. 10 inches long.  Pinch all three together on one end and create braid, pinch final ends.  Let rise 45 minutes or until doubled in size.

Brush with egg wash (1 egg and 1TBL water).  Bake in preheated oven at 375 degrees for 25 minutes or until golden brown.

Once I finish his favorite dessert, I’ll l share the recipe.  It gets rave reviews!


  1. Now here's a recipe I need to keep. Bread looks amazing!

  2. Hey Izzy. How timely. I am going to try this recipe. We are going to be having a bake sale to help raise funds to send my daugther to Italy on a study abroad next year so this is exactly what I have been looking for. Thanks!


We love to hear from you! Thanks for taking the time to stop by.
