Gorgeous Challah bread that’s perfect for the holidays to share with your family and friends. Perfect for French toast or bread pudding the next day.
Challah is a special Jewish braided bread and it’s similar to the easter bread as in they both have eggs. Traditionally they are braided in 6 pieces, so I struggled to figure out how to braid in 6 pieces, I had to watch many videos on youtube before I got the hang of it. You can braid them in 3 pieces as well, or 5 pieces, it’s totally up to you. Personally I think the 6 pieces braided one looks gorgeous.
