    Traditional egg bread for the Jewish Sabbath. You can add sultanas to the dough just before shaping and then make the loaves into round plaits for Rosh Hashanah.

    This recipe will make enough dough for two challah plaits. This means you can serve one and freeze the other! Sometimes I add a handful of raisins, currants or dried cranberries to the dough.

    The trick is to boil before baking! This makes an excellent batch of plain bagels that you can enhance with sesame seeds or poppy seeds.

    This rich egg bread is easy to prepare in a bread machine, but the traditional plaited look is preserved when it is baked in the oven.

    These little bread rings, Jewish in origin, are delicious teamed with savoury fillings such as smoked salmon and a soft cheese, or egg and salad. The double cooking method – first by briefly poaching in boiling water, then baking – gives bagels their unique soft crumb and slightly chewy crust.
