Great job! Your challah does look amazing, and I bet it was great with homemade jam! I keep eating mine with some homemade apple butter a friend gave me (aren't friends awesome!) I love the idea of having breakfast for dinner every Friday, too! Brinner is one of my favorites! :) Glad you finally found some time to bake again, the Daring Bakers is one of the things I try to make time for each month, even if my toddler ends up helping me!
Thanks, Jenni! I'm really excited to me back in the swing of things again.
Yum. That looks incredible! And challah is not an easy feat... we used to make it at the grocery-store bakery I work in, and we had to stop because it was too time consuming. A lot of unhappy customers! Such a delicious bread. Good for you!!
Thanks, Andrea! Now I know why it was so difficult to find around town!
I agree, bread baking in the oven is one of the best smells in the world :) This is a beautiful challah. Welcome back to the group!
Thanks, Korena! Yours look perfect -- you're my challah idol!
Your challah looks so lovely with the brightness of the home made jam. I bet it tasted as amazing as it looks!
Thank you, cakecrumbs! I say everything is better with homemade jam, especially homemade bread of any sort. Wouldn't you agree?
Your challah looks amazing. And I agree, I love the tradition you have of a weekly breakfast for dinner! Congratulations on getting back intothe challenges, and on your wonderful baby! (My younger daughter turns one next week... hasn't this year just flown by for you?!) That top picture of the sliced loaf and the raspberry jam pulled me in. The crumb of your bread looks heavenly! Thank you so much for baking with me this month!
Thank you, Ruth! And thanks for the fun challenge this month! This year with my little guy has certainly flown by in record time, just as everyone told me it would. ;D
Great job on the challah...you've got the perfect braid.looks great. I am sure it wud have tasted great with the home made jam:)
Your french toast with some homemade raspberry jam looks so yummy!!! Beautiful Challah:) You did a great job on this challenge!
Thank you, zazacook!
That is a beautiful loaf! My favorite was just to eat it simply also. :)
I made this bread yesterday and it turned out really good! But for some reason I didn't use all the flour that was asked for, over 1 cup. It was quite hard to knead it by hand. Maybe someday when I have a fancy stand up mixer it will be easier to use all 4 cups but all that matters is that it turned out delish!Thanks for sharing it!
I'm glad it turned out for you, Nadja! I know when making bread the amount of flour you need can vary due to a number of factors. Maybe your eggs were smaller, or maybe the air was dry, giving you less moisture to sop up all that flour. And a stand mixer does help. ;D In any case, good bread is good bread!
true. Thanks :]
Will work for food... I mean comments
