Give Me a Big Challah!

Last year, I had a personal goal of mastering a variety of soups.  This year, it’s the year of kick ass bread.  I think I can do it, but there is a little more science involved with bread, so there’s not always a guarantee that everything will turn out OK.  So, imagine my glee when my first attempt at challah bread turned out lovely.  I followed the recipe out of my 2007 The Best of America’s Test Kitchen cookbook, which you can’t access on their site without a membership, but I did find the same recipe here if you would like to make your house smell divinely of fresh baked challah bread.  You can let me know how it goes…

I spent a year working with bread art.. one of my favorites was a round bread loave,, then you used the extra bread dough and scissors to cut the shapes to make a scene..I loved doing the farm scenes on the top of the round bread..

My family and friends always thought they added such a nice touch to the table settings..and the extra butter used to hold it all together until it baked..made it ummmm ummmmm good....

I always liked making homemade bread...it may be one of the few things I can cook..

I really like this recipe. Maya also has this great video showing how to do a six strand braided challah.
