Bread Machine Challah I

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2012
I spent today baking both Bread Machine Challah I and Bread Machine Challah II. I like this recipe much better. What I ended up doing was making a double recipe on the "dough" setting in my bread machine, and then and making two braided loafs in the oven -- baking them for 25 minutes at 350 (as suggested in version II). When I rolled out the dough I coated the strands in flour to keep them from merging together during the second (braided) raising of the dough. I then coated the braids in egg and a little bit of honey and baked. They came out beautifully. I also warmed the milk in the microwave for 40 seconds and proofed the yeast with a bit of sugar in the milk for 10 minutes before adding it to the bread machine.

Bread Machine Challah II

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2012
I spent today making this recipe and Bread Machine Challah I. I have to say I like Bread Machine Challah I much more. For this recipe, I did what other people suggested and used 4 1/2 cups of flower instead of 4, but the dough still came out too sticky. When I braided the dough at let it rise again, it sort of ran together and lost it's shape. When I baked it, the loaves came out a little flat. They taste good, and are moist. I think that perhaps the wetting and covering braids with plastic wrap contributed to the over-softness of the dough. Instead I would suggest rolling out the braid strands with flour to help them keep separated.
