The Challah is dleicious. However, I would like to share with my fellow amateur bread bakers that the water in which you dissolve the yeast (instant or not) should be no warmer than luke warm. If the water is too hot, it will kill the yeast and your dough wont rise. This can be disheartening.
It is also possible that this recipe should call for 2 packets of yeast. Eventhough others have reviewed that one worked fine. I have just made another loaf and it will not rise. Just like the first. But, when I add a second, it does rise. So the question is: Have I killed the yeast twice or should the recipe call for two .25 ounce packets?
