In hindsight yes, but the use of the plural 'cups' indicates otherwise. Oh well, 12 cups of flour, 8 eggs, almost a whole jar of honey wasted. Not to mention the clean up! ;p
ill have to try again another day, my patience has worn quite thin now :(
Thanks anyway.

I'm so sorry you misunderstood. But this recipe already makes "2 large challahs" -- why would you double that recipe if you'd never made it before?

I didn't start out to make a double quantity, I stupidly tried to rescue the first batch by doubling up the ingredients. I should have trashed it and started from scratch, but I really didn't want to waste the ingredients I'd already used.
It never struck me as odd that it would mean 2 to 3 cups as often in baking the liquid amounts can vary depending on the type of flour and how well it soaks up the liquid. I suppose I should have looked at other recipes before starting.
