I have a great challah recipe that uses no eggs (but also tastes great with eggs). I always freeze the challah I make and take it out a few hours before I need it. I want to start selling challah in my community, and assume many buyers will not freeze it like I do. I want challah that is bought on Friday to stay fresh throughout Shabbos if kept in its airtight packaging but not frozen.

I’ve heard that eggs help challah keep fresh. Is this true? How many eggs per 2.5lb/kg flour would I need for it to work?

Thanks

I make an egg challah, and it does not stay fresh to my liking. I know there is some trick, but I don't now what it is!

Honey is a humectant (absorbs and holds water from the air) and supposedly helps keep baked goods from drying out. I bake challah with honey but haven’t noticed that it stays more moist than any other challah. Then again, I bake my challah till it’s pretty dry to begin with.
