My homemade challah secrets

Yes, I work full time (very). Yes, I have four children, including a very trying one-year-old. But I still manage to fit in homemade challah. Here is my secret.

Daughters. At least one, but preferably two or three. The more, the merrier!

I may post other secret tips for homemade challah - like the perfect amount of rising time and really good pans. But without my daughters to braid the dough for me, I confess: we would be suffering with the store bought stuff.


  1. OK. A full time job I have. But a 13-year-old daughter I also have. Do I need a Bosch mixer, or can I make homemade challah with a 14-year-old KitchenAid?

  2. Nechama, the kitchen aid is fine but I wouldn't recommend five pounds. Half a recipe works well in a kitchen aid.
