Questions & Answers


It looks like challah, anyway good instructable!

Ya... Whats with the challah imitations?

yeeah that is good..i think i took about 200°C..also you can tap on the bottom of the zopf and if it sounds hollow it should be done...

Step 12 could do with a few more details, specifically two: temperature and time. I know it will depend on your oven etc. but a rough indication would be great. If you can provide this I will have to start making these- my student house got through two 800g challot every week just through nibbling. Probably stopped me from starving away in exam time...

I made it. Temperature: 190, time: 40min
