In this short video, I share how to braid a challah using two strands. I got the idea from Ted at “There’s a Fire in My Kitchen,” a blog that is now inactive. Unfortunately he didn’t show exactly how to do the braiding, so I improvised a little.
I made this Challah a couple months ago with mostly whole wheat. It tasted pretty yeasty to me, maybe because I left the dough in the fridge overnight. It was still the best Challah I’ve ever made. I froze a loaf and some rolls and warmed them in the oven a couple months later. Amazing! My dad also used this recipe and he and my mom said it was the best Challah any of us has ever made.
