This is the quintessential egg bread of the Sabbath but done a bit differently. The best part is the topping and sesame seed crust so why not coat the entire bread with sesame seeds, instead of just on top? This recipe makes a velvety-stranded challah. It is a golden hued bread that features that slight ‘stretch’ or resistance to it when take that first bite – all nicely contrasted with a tender crust. The total extreme, sesame outwear makes this challah unique looking and totally sumptuous to snack on but the secret inside (see the recipe) is what makes it totally sing sesame’s siren song. This is a golden, egg bread that is good 24/7 in any household. I would also carry on about how it makes great toast and French toast and sandwiches but there are no leftovers so why pretend….?
