Weeknight Baking: Olive & Sea Salt Challah

Alright, one recipe down!  I was inspired by my friend Anna who recently blogged about the ease of baking bread.  When flipping through Smitten Kitchen, I spied this recipe, fig, olive oil, and sea salt challah.  I omitted the figs for lack of ingredients on hand, and used wheat flour instead of white.  The final product was successful, the challah was slightly denser than what I was hoping for, but the flavor was intact. Next time, I'll be sure to use white flour for the authentic challah texture.  Looking back, challah was probably not the easiest choice for a first time baker, but overall, I was pretty pleased with my first attempt at bread baking.
