Whenever I am working from home on Fridays (which is pretty much weekly) I make Challah for Shabbat dinner.  I have tried and adjusted many recipes, and this is the version I like best. Most recipes make 2 loaves (because it’s traditional to have 2 loaves for Shabbat) but I created a recipe that makes one loaf, which is usually plenty. To mix it up, you can add raisins, craisins, nuts, fruit, chocolate chips, etc. I learned to do the 6-piece braid on youtube via this link (I think about 100 of those views are mine). You can sprinkle sesame seeds, poppy seeds, crushed nuts, sea salt…whatever you like on top. Whatever you don’t finish makes for great french toast the next morning. Shabbat Shalom!
