Honey Apple Challah

honeyapplechallahHolla at ya girl I finally made Challah! I followed this recipe precisely from Tori Avey¬†— I didn’t make substitutions or changes, so this post is more of a review rather than a recipe post. To confess, the only Challah I’ve had is from my favorite bakery Great Harvest, so I don’t have much to compare it to. However, even with the addition of apples and honey in this homemade recipe I still prefer Great Harvest’s version. The Honey Apple Challah recipe has a bit of a sourdough-y taste to it whereas Great Harvest’s is much sweeter. Don’t get me wrong, the Honey Apple Challah was quite delicious, especially when toasted! I didn’t love it as is though like I loved Great Harvest’s version plain. So, my hunt for the tastiest Challah recipe continues! Nonetheless these looked beautiful and my coworkers LOVED them, so maybe I’m just being too picky ;)
