Sadly this is supposed to be a light, fluffy type of bread not a really dense bread. I guess we can say my first attempt at making bread didn't go so well. Maybe I'll work up the courage to try making bread again, but I don't know. This was very time consuming and the results aren't good.
Update: the bread is actually edible. Far too dense to be challah but edible none the less. I'm not sure what this bread is good for but it is edible. Maybe that is a good start for my first attempt at making bread from scratch.
