This is the first time I made Challah from start to finish in the bread maker. Last year I just made the dough. I left the yeast and eggs out over night to warm up and I think it made all the difference in how this rose up. I live at 5,000 feet and cut back on the yeast, and think I could have cut back even more. I will next time. Here's the recipe as written. I put my ingredients in the order recommended by the machine making sure the yeast and liquids DO NOT TOUCH ONE ANOTHER.
