Challah is the traditional Jewish Sabbath bread, rich with eggs and oil, and a bit sweet. While commonly served as an oblong braided loaf, on Rosh Hashanah, round challah is served to symbolize eternal life.
Every Friday, I bake challah bread for our Friday night dinner. It never gets old. Challa is amazing with anything. You can top it with savory spreads like pesto or salted butter, you can top it with sweet spreads like honey or Nutella. You can clean whatever sauce is left on your plate at the end of a meal with a handful of challah, or you can make a mean french toast with it in the morning. Bottom line – if you never made challah, it's time to give it a try. You'll love it!
