I had so much fun making this! A great, easy to follow recipe...not as complicated as I was expecting. I also do not have a bread machine, so I heated the water to 110-115 degrees F, then added the yeast to soften. Next, I whisked in the honey, salt and melted butter. I followed another reviewers suggestion and stirred in 1 cup of flour, then the eggs. Finally added as much flour as I could, then kneaded the rest in. I kneaded the dough for about 7 minutes, then put in a greased bowl, covered and let rise for about 35 mintues. I rolled out 3 strands of dough (all equal in size and thickness) and did a simple braid, then pinched off the ends to secure. I did find many wonderful videos on YouTube showing how to make with 4, 5 and even 6 strands...will try some of these next time. Brushed on an egg wash of 1 egg beaten with 1 tbsp. water...just scrambled the leftover egg mixture for a snack. Baked Challah at a lower temp (350 degrees) for 35 minutes and it came out perfect. Next time might top with sesame or poppy seeds ~ Thanks!
