    According to your recipe there is no kneading, braiding, egg wash. It seems as if there are some steps missing

    I use honey in my challot every week. Though I only use about 1/3c, as we don’t like our challah sweet. I sometimes mix a little honey into the egg wash and it makes a beautiful glaze.

    Thank you for your response Tamar. I’ve just made this recipe and it turned out great! I did however need to use 7 cups of flour in total instead of 6 cups as written. Still, the result was lovely soft challot. Thanks for sharing!
