Challah recipes typically make several loaves or more.

good for you. i haven't made challah in so long. i have recently embarked on a healthy lifestyle which includes eating properly and really exercisign. so i stopped ALL baking - not bread or cookies or anything - not even 'healthy' stuff, because if it's 'there', i know who is going to eat it lol. a while ago, i experimented with sour dough - real sour dough starter, with out any yeast but i threw it out a while ago because i jut don't want to get back into that. that bread is just TOO good....

That's what I do sometimes also. I have a bread machine recipe that calls for 4 1/2 c flour that does well in my kitchen aid. But it's getting to be that that is barely enough for my family. So usually I make a recipe with 7 c flour, that I have to knead by hand. In the 9th month of my last pregnancy, I made a batch with 5 lb flour so I could take challah and make a bracha. That was fun and filled my freezer for a few months. :)

That's a great idea - why didn't I think of that???

Now if I could find a recipe that I really like...
