Braided Challah Bread

Braided Challah Bread

This light and tender braided challah bread is both beautiful and delicious!

Challah is perhaps my favorite homemade bread to bake, though I only seem to make it for special occasions. I learned how to make it in culinary school and I’ve been hooked ever since. I mean, have you ever seen a more gorgeous loaf of bread?

This challah bread is so soft and tender, with a rich and slightly sweet flavor. It’s a wonderful— and stunning— accompaniment to a nice meal, but Challah also works really well for french toast, bread pudding, and even sandwiches.

If baking a loaf of bread like this makes you nervous, relax! Even though it looks super fancy, it’s not necessarily any more difficult than other bread recipes. I first shared this braided Challah recipe in 2009, but today I’m giving it a complete overhaul with more information and resources. The recipe is exactly the same though, it’s tried and true!
