Challah Bread

One of the things that I love about Twitter is that I get new recipe ideas from those that I follow. It might be hard for you to believe, but even I have trouble thinking of new things to cook sometimes! On Friday, a fellow tweeter sent a link to various recipes for challah bread. Something clicked, and despite the fact that I am not Jewish, I decided that I had to try to make some challah.

I used this traditional challah recipe, and since I still have bread in the freezer from my last experiment, I cut the recipe in half. Some eggs and a little sugar in the dough make this bread very light and just a touch sweet. I was proud of my braiding skills, and the egg wash made the crust golden brown. While eating a warm hunk of this bread straight from the oven, I was reminded of the hot cross buns that my grandmother used to make. And now I know what my next baking project is going to be, with a due date of Ash Wednesday.

  2. Kerry, I've seen a lot of Challah, and yours looks professional! You never fail to amaze me! Definitely use the leftovers, if there are any, for French Toast. Its a Sunday staple in the house that I sit at! -Lee

  3. Seems like everybody is interested in challah! The French toast is a great idea, will need to do that next time. And yes, ME, we can do a bread baking session, but after all this awful snow melts!
