Sigh. I misread my recipe for challah and accidentally made 4 loaves. Crap. I love challah. That's a huge temptation.

Six strand braid, with a double egg wash prior to baking, and steam in the oven for the first 10 minutes.  

Sadly, as delicious as this is, it makes my knees itch just thinking about.  I miss gluten.  :-(

That's a decade of challah practice and literally a lifetime of bread baking with my mother.  :-)

There's an amazing book called Secrets of a Jewish Baker that I learned a ton of tricks from.  I bought it used but it may be available on Amazon for aspiring home bakers.

LOOOOVE challah! Those look so delicious! Thanks for sharing the recipe! I've been wanting to learn how to make it. Have you ever made it with whole wheat flour? I know some of the bakeries that make it here do whole wheat. At least it will be slightly healthier? lol

Sure :) you can def use whole wheat pastry flour. Don't use regular whole wheat because it will be like a brick.
