My First Challah!

Last month, my (non-veg) friend tigerbright and I made challah. In addition to the 6-strander pictured below, I made mini 3- and 5-strand loaves as well as a large 7-strand herringbone, but those were from the non-vegan dough and not for me, so I didn't bother with pictures. :)

This is the recipe we worked from for the vegan bread, except we left out the eggs and added a half-cup of flaxmeal after the first cup of flour. The lower fluid volume required about a cup less flour. (Pick your favorite liquid sweetener, but I'd avoid maple in this case because it has such a strong flavor.) It turned out fantastically yummy.

These are cam-phone shots before & after baking. (The first is fuzzy due to insufficient light.)
