Bread Machine Challah

This Bread Machine Challah was a big hit at Sunday dinner and something I will be making again! It's a hearty loaf with a pretty light yellow color. Challah has always been my favorite bread for Easter dinner, it's nice to know there's a good bread machine recipe for it:@)

Leftovers made great French Toast too.

I used all purpose flour and added 1 1/2 tsp Vital Wheat Gluten since I had it in the freezer.
I was tickled by the way the top of the loaf looked:@)
Next time I'm going to try a tip from Bread Machine Magic HERE and add poppy seeds to the top.

  2. Can it be made without the vital wheat gluten? I will put it on my wal mart list if it is essential. Sounds good.

    1. Hello, the original recipe calls for bread flour, I only added the vwg because I had it an used A/P flour.

  4. Oh my, I wish I had a slice of your challah bread for my morning toast tomorrow, Lynn. I'm going to pass this recipe on to my youngest son, who was given a free bread machine from a friend.

  5. In forgot to mention that I use vital wheat gluten when using AP flour, too, when making my bread from the Civil War starter.
