This was an easy bread to prepare and produced a moist, even crumb. That being said, I don't think I would have identified this as challah in a blind taste test. Challah is typically much richer, in my experience. But, I suppose this is the price one must pay for following a light recipe (sometimes). The leftovers made an excellent (also light) bread pudding.

This got all deflated so I don't know if it was my fault... I don;t know if I'm a terrible cook or if Cooking Light is a terrible magazine because EVERY recipe I have ever tried from it gets screwed up terribly. FML.

I agree that this is hardly like challah - more like a homemade white bread, only in novel braided form. A moist interior and a very crisp crust that had an almost goldfish-snack-cracker taste to it. Best when part of a warming winter meal - mushroom soup and mashed potatoes.
