"I make this challah for my family and family gatherings in Colorado, and it turns out beautifully each time. I hope you enjoy it as much as my family does! If you'd like, sprinkle poppy or sesame seeds before baking, but we never do."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

Fabulous, reliable, can be made with oil instead of butter for those keeping kosher. I have a sea-level recipe that is not nearly as good...planning to try to adapt this one to sea level this week!
I live at 7500 feet, this bread turns out beautifully.
Great recipe. It only took 20 minutes to bake. I am sure this is because of my low altitude. Looks and tastes great.
I am glad I found it.
Love this bread, family loves it! Made 4 loaves this weekend, kept one at home, and took 3 to a church potluck. There's not even one slice left. Just a note... I use the leftover egg whites from the separated eggs to brush on the loaf before baking, works great.
This recipe uses a ton of eggs compared to other challah recipes, and I love it for that. 45 minutes seems to be the right time for the second rise - one batch I rose for 1 hour 15 minutes and that was too much - it flattened out a little when baking.
We live in New Mexico so we have an obligation to put green chiles in literally everything - I put 7 extra-hot chiles diced right into the dough before kneading and it came out unbelievably delicious and the whole house smelled like chile.
I have used this recipe for a couple of weeks and it is wonderful! I live in Colorado, so it helps that you live here also! The only thing I change is how much flower I use, I only use 3 cups. When I use an extra half it gets a little to dry.
Delicious! I live at 9500ft, this recipe turned out great! I can't stop eating it. Fast and easy too.
We live at 5,280 feet, and this recipe worked perfectly for us! It looked gorgeous, too. We followed the directions exactly, except we braided the bread with 5 strands, and we sprinkled sesame seeds on top after the egg wash but before popping it in the oven.
