A question about a recipe: Cool Rise Challah

I have a question about the recipe "Cool Rise Challah" from Bria. I am making much smaller loaves; 6 instead of 2. How long shall I bake them?

Haven't made this specific recipe, but often make challah (in different versions) in smaller sizes. For smaller-than-regular size loaves and rolls, about 25-30 min at 350 usually works. If you're worried your oven is fast or that's too much, start checking visually at 15 or 20 minutes into the bake time.

Once they start to turn lightly golden, you should check the temperature. A loaf of bread is done once the internal temperature reaches 170+ degrees F. Gluten free bread is a different story, but the challah would follow that rule.
