I'm an American living in China and was looking for a little taste of good, homemade challah bread like my mother made back home. I found this recipe and loved it! I did make a few changes though. Thy are as follows: I halved the recipe. I don't have an actual oven here, so I baked it in a toaster oven. I made the halved recipe with two eggs and also used 1/8 cup white sugar and a about 1/8 cup and 2 tablespoons honey. So for the full recipe, that would be 1/4 cup white sugar and 1/4 cup and 4 tablespoons honey. I added the honey because I read some of the other reviews. The honey sweetened it up just enough, but not too much. I omitted the poppy seeds (I can't find them here in China). I also only let it rise twice in stead of the 3 times that the recipe calls for. Just before I baked the bread, I brushed the top with egg yoke. My North American friends loved it. It was excellent! I will definitely make this again!
