“This our family favorite. The recipe was a gift from my best friend.” - by Ione Walker
Original recipe yields 1 2-pound loaf
- Place water, salt, honey, eggs, melted butter or margarine, flour, and yeast in order given into the bread machine. Set the machine to Dough cycle, and start.
- Remove dough from the machine after first rising. Divide dough into three or four equal pieces. Braid the pieces, and tuck the ends under; pinch to seal. Place on a greased baking tray. This bread can also be made in a 9 x 5 inch greased loaf pan. Allow to rise until doubled in size.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
- Bake in preheated oven until the crust is a deep golden brown, about 35 to 45 minutes.

"Perfect! We love challah, but searched for one without the milk and sugar in the usual recipes. I bake this all the time even for our regular whole wheat sandwich bread, just replace the flour with ..." See morewhole wheat flour and add 4tsp. vital wheat gluten and it makes a perfect loaf of soft (not dense, hard, and heavy) wheat bread. Also makes great whole wheat dinner rolls just make the same adjustments and form into balls (12-15 or more depending on size preference) instead of forming a loaf and then cover and let rise 20-30 minutes until almost doubled in size, brush with egg glaze and bake 20-30 minutes or until done. I've even used the same dough (whole wheat of course) to make awesome whole wheat cinnamon rolls, just use this dough in place of the one on "clone of a cinnabon" on this site for a healthier version of that yummy recipe, and follow shaping and icing instructions using fat free cream cheese in place of the other in the recipe. I just love this recipe, soooo many possibilities and it freezes well too... thanks Ione!!!"
"Oh so easy, but be sure not to over bake so it is not dry. I added 1 cup of raisins which I had covered with water and replumped in the microwave on high for five minutes, drained and let cool. I brus..." See morehed the top prior to baking with honey,thin with a little water if it is difficult to spread and sprinkle with poppy seeds. Enjoy!"
