Famous Challah Recipe - A La Devorah Heller
enlarge
This recipe is from Devorah Heller, "The Challah Maven". She came to Monsey a number of years ago and gave a lesson in challah baking to the first graders and their mothers. It was such a nice idea! She also had great eitzah on how to braid with 6 strands. This recipe is basically her recipe with my commentary and wording. I hope I got it right!

I never look at youtube, but it occurred to me that I might get a good lesson in challah braiding by looking there. I found that in April, Devorah Heller's recipe was taped into multiple clips. Here are the names of the clips that you can search on:

Just a rather off handed question. Approximately how many challot are made from this recipe? 6 pounds of flour? Put the dough in a clean garbage bag? Sounds as though we are preparing for the army to arrive, but it would be nice to know how many one can/should expect this to make. Thank you.

Since this is a 6 lb recipe, you can make 6 1-lb challos. You can make bigger ones and get less challos. You can take amount for a 1 lb challah and make bulkalach. Re garbage bag - I actually made the recipe for Shabbos and used one. You can also use a plastic table cloth and cover it with the leftover plastic tablecloth until dough rises. Clean up is very easy with this method. Re recipe, I think I would like it to be a little sweeter so next time I would add more sugar to recipe.

Devorah Heller is the Best! Her Challa's are delicous and she is the biggest expert!

Actually, this recipe produces more than six pounds of dough. It produces more like 9 to 10 pounds. For instance, the 5 pound (flour) recipe makes 8-1/2 pounds of dough...
