There's nothing like eating a meal, making toast or a eating a sandwich with freshly baked bread.  Bread machines make it incredibly easy to make a fresh loaf of bread in 3 hours or less.  Through a lot of experimentation, I came up with the perfect bread machine recipe for Challah bread.  Making the bread is simple: just add the ingredients in the order presented in this recipe and voila! you have a delicious loaf of Challah bread!  I hope you enjoy this recipe.

Just made your bread this evening, and it came out great! I wanted to experiment before Friday, but I think I'll set the crust to light for Friday's bread instead of medium. Thanks again for the great recipe!

We just tried this and failed :( our dough never turned into a fancy ball, just a yummy smelling puddle of goo. We tried adding more flour after the first rise (during the second kneading cycle) but with no luck. Everyone's loaves look so beautiful though, we'll give it another go! (We're bread machine newbies... so maybe we're missing something. If anyone has advice, we'd be glad to take it!)

And! spoke too soon, we decided to let it cook all the way till the end even though it never balled up, and ended up with some very good bread :D YAY!!!! Thanks for the great recipe!
Never seen it or bought it with poppy seeds. Looks great!
This bread makes some wicked french toast.
Challah at your boy!
I just finished using your recipe to make my own rendition of Challah bread... I put a tablespoon of honey spread and 2 tablespoons of butter, used sesame seeds in lieu of poppy seeds (we ran out!). I also got really bored and made two different loaf renditions, haha. What else is there to do at 2:00 A.M. on a weekday? Plus, I'll just give them away.
Anywho, awesome recipe and thanks for contributing to Instructables!
