I know that braiding the dough is traditional. But any time I have made challah bread, I just put it in the loaf pan as I would a regular loaf of white bread. I have always used the recipe from the Joy of Cooking. Unfortunately I no longer have my copy of that cookbook. So if I were to make it today, I would look on line for a recipe that looks like what I am familiar with.

I always give it as a wedding present. Or a housewarming present.

Good idea, Addie! At least one person must cook in a marriage. Well, unless you have unlimited funds and you're one of those people who can eat anything without gaining weight.

Addie, here is the link to the Joy of cooking Challah recipe. I compared it to my book and it is the same.

It is. Just make sure you knead it enough. It is very tasty and light. Makes for fantastic French Toast. A favorite for sure in this family.

Souschef, thank you for showing this. I no longer have my JOC. It is what happens when you have kids. Mine now has a new home at my daughter's home. Copied and saved.

My granddaughter received one from her mother when she went off to school. It got a lot of use. And not just by her. All her friends poured over it looking for what they could cook in their dorm rooms. No ramen diet for her and her friends.

After school, the roommate made sure she would have one when she set up her own apartment. She asked for one from her parents when she moved out on her own. There is a good reason why it is called "The Bible Of Cooking."

I think of JOC as a cooking encyclopedia. When I lived in a log cabin, back in the late '70s/early '80s, it was the only cookbook we owned. I used it for cooking, canning, and how to cut up wild meat.

I have yet to come across any cookbook that covers any subject on cooking as completely as JOC. From table setting for various events to the most complicated recipe there is. Even though Mrs. Rombaurer has passed away, you have to give credit to her son for keeping her book just like she did when she was alive. I think they have done a fantastic job of keeping up with using the appliances we have today, that weren't around when JOC first was published eons ago. The book has definitely kept up with the times.
