I found this recipe in Jewish Women’s magazine for authentic challah bread.  You can make it using your bread machine or by hand — either way, it’s super easy! 

This recipe made two loaves and I used them to make tomorrow’s recipe for pumpkin bread puddingJust wait, you’ll see that recipe, well, tomorrow.

Unlike my previously posted challah bread recipe, this one is going into my book because I know it’s authentic.  The  loaves were sweet and chewy. 

Here are  step-by-step photos:
