I actually made this Challah while back when I saw a post by Marlene Newell on Michael Rulhman's blog. She adapted the recipe from "Artisan Breads Everyday" by Peter Reinhart, which fortunately I happen to own this book as well. Although I make Challah on a regular basis, I never really used Peter Reinhart's book. So this time, I thought I gave it a try.
I halved the recipe as the original recipe will yield 2 large loafs, which would be too much for our small family. I absolutely couldn't get over how delicious it was, it was really similar to brioche that almost everyone adore. Having said that, you may not too surprise to learn how many egg yolks actually needed for the recipe (I used 5 extra large). The recipe also used oil, which I never really did on my challah. Now you understand why I like it, eggs, honey, oil, no wonder it was that good. I can assure you that from now on I am going to use this recipe whenever I need to bake Challah.
Tempted, and want to make this Challah? Well, you can either purchase Peter Reinhart's book or books, or go to Michael Ruhlman's blog for the recipe. Thanks Marlene Newell who made me tempted to try the recipe. If she didn't post this Challah, I would probably never made it! Lastly, thanks to you all for reading this.
