With the Royal Challah® silicone baking pan you will create the perfectly braided Challah every time.
There is absolutely no braiding required. Use your favorite Challah recipe. Let the dough rise once. Then fill the mold with dough to the half way mark. Wet a The Original Challah Dough cover and place over the pan to create a clean and moist
environment and let the dough rise a second time. Bake for 2/3rd the way. Take out the Challah and use The Kosher Cook pastry brush to cover Challah with egg wash.
Then continue to bake for the remaining 1/3. Keep checking as temperatures and recipe may vary.
See the pictures of a real Challah baked in this pan! Beautiful. Even your children can participate in this beautiful mitzvah.
