I've been making challah for years and hands down this recipe makes the best I've ever had. It's not heavy or too dense. I get so many compliments when I that it to synagogue for our Friday Oneg

This truly is a fantastic challah recipe. I get consistent results that everyone raves over. My one adaptation (actually taken from another version of the Smitten Kitchen recipe) is to use warm milk instead of water as I grow the yeast. The challah turns out rich and flavorful, and her recommendation to have one of the risings in the refrigerator was a revelation for me.
