First product using my SPAR mixer

Having some left-over eggs in the fridge, I decided that it was a good time to make my first loaf of bread using the SPAR mixer. I chose to make challah again to compare the difference between hand-kneaded and machine-kneaded.

Made a 6-plaited one again as it's my fav. ^_^

Challah after baking. Nice and golden brown.

How the crumb looks like.

Taste test: Soft and fluffy crumb, with a tinge of egg fragrance and subtle sweetness. YUM!

Compared to the hand-kneaded challah made last X-Mas day, today's challah takes the cake.

Final verdict: SPAR wins. Me lose.
