      What a delicious and unique tasting challah! I really enjoyed the sweet taste of this version of challah. I mixed up the dough entirely by hand and I sure did get a workout! Everything worked out very nicely and I found the directions very easy to follow. Thanks for a very tasty recipe!

      Oh, Mirjam, your challah is the BEST! The color and texture is perfect, and the taste is DIVINE! I used the KitchenAide mixer, and shaped the dough in 2 mini loaves and 1 large braid. Good stuff, Dolly! Laudee

      What delicious Challah! The dough didn't rise properly- but I am convinced that it's something wrong with me. I seem to be biochemically unable to make dough rise the way it should.. Anyway, the flavour of this challah was sweet and wonderful. DH loved it. I will try making it again, and hopefully it will rise next time- but if not, it's the sweetest pancake in town! Thanks Mirjam..

      ug...I didn't like this at all and no one in the family ate it. I liked the technique of working with the dough in this way and was surprized with how little "liquid" was needed. But I dont know. Maybe it was all those eggs sitting out in the Israeli sun. But it just didn't taste good, sweet, or fresh. This one really struck out with me.

      Mirj - I haven't yet tried the recipe, but I'm trying to find a good challah recipe that is quite heavy and doughy. The one's I make are good, but lacking in that chewiness that's so special for a challah - can you help?

      Having in the past followed this recipe to the letter, it has turned out really delicious. I have also added in poppy seed in one & raisons to the other, as we do like these extras. This week though, I followed most of your recipe as is. But I added about a cup of wheat germ too & raised the amount of soy milk to 250ml. I then divided the dough into 1/3 & 2/3. The 1/3 I added candied citrus & to the 2/3 I added poppyseed. I mixed & kneeded it all by hand. I was using these "dry" yeast sachets. 11grams each. I used 1 1/2 sachets in total. It said that 1 sachet was enough for 1/2 - 1kg of flour so I added extra to make up for the extra wheat germ. Alas, the dough did not really rise & although the taste was delicious, the texture was lacking. I will try different yeast next week, but I sticking to the rest of the recipe as it really is great!

      This recipe was delicious. The challas I made came out very tasty, but not too sweet. So far as I've seen till now, all of Mirj's recipes are wonderful.
