"Possibly the most aesthetically pleasing bread, challah is traditionally baked for the Sabbath and Jewish holidays, commemorating the manna from heaven to the children of Israel during the Exodus from Egypt. The dough is rich with eggs, the loaves are glazed with egg wash for a lustrous sheen and the taste is simply heavenly – like manna. I added the poppy seeds for topping and just as I was sprinkling them on I remembered the challah from my childhood, covered with very faintly sweet crumbs! But it was too late to produce the crumbs (1 – 1 – ½ sugar, flour and oil if you’re interested) and anyway the loaf couldn’t wait for the oven any longer."
