When I emailed my cousin Sara for a recipe for Challah Bread, I failed to tell her that I was just going to make it and then stick it in the crock pot to make Creme Brulee French Toast. There are things that are just better left not said in an email. I’ll just reserve that for the next family get together when I ask for her to forgive me.
What I will say is that this bread was so incredible. I made an extra loaf so we could eat it with soup. I’m not sure if that’s what you’re supposed to do with Challah bread, but that’s how we enjoyed it. I’m still learning all the Kosher and Parve rules. So what is Challah bread? It’s a sweet, eggy bread that is traditionally eaten during Shabbat. Shabbat is the weekly day of rest for my family members who are Jewish. It begins on Friday evening and ends on Saturday evening each week. It is a wonderful sandwich bread and can be used to eat with soups or with butters like cinnamon butter or raspberry honey butter.
What I will tell you is this bread is so soft and delicious. I love the little speckles from the flax seeds. It’s stunning. Enjoy a loaf of Sara’s challah bread recipe. I promise you will love it!
