Chernowitzer Challah

I love Maggie Glezer’s book A Blessing of Bread. My husband likes a challah with plenty of oil, so I tried the Chernowitzer challah. We were very pleased, although I think I could up the oil even more!

The flavor is a bit like the Peter Reinhart BBA poor man’s brioche, but the texture is challah-like (naturally).

I think I will submit this to Yeastspotting.
