Cake challah

rmarvin437 | Dec 2, 2012 04:16 PM

Trying to recreate the challah I grew up with. My mother used to buy challah at a bakery in albertson n.y. What was special about it was that it was dense and cake like. Anybody familiar with such a version of challah. Pretty sure the bread was parve. Currently I use Claudia Roden's recipe.

A Jewish baker suggested experimenting with shortening but google cant find a challah with shortening. Any ideas?
