Bread Machine Honey Whole Wheat Challah

“We make this every week in our house. People keep asking for the recipe -- we think they're impressed to find a healthy challah that also tastes great! It resembles actual bread more than cake. Just throw the ingredients into a bread machine with a "dough" cycle, braid, & bake!”
