When I first saw this picture on Pinterest, my first thought was of course for Shavuot! What would be more gorgeous than to uncover the challah cover to 2 of these beauties!
Here is a sneak preview!
One of my favorite blogs The Challah Blog has some incredible (and VERY original!) recipes and shapes every week! Here is her basic challah recipe. Enjoy!
- 1¼ c water
- 1 tbsp active dry or instant yeast
- 3 tbsp honey
- 3 eggs + 1 egg for wash
- ½ c neutral oil (we use canola, but vegetable is fine)
- 6 c bread flour
- 2 tsp salt
- sesame or poppy seeds or cinnamon sugar for topping (optional)
- While I would usually include the instructions here, The Mrs. (as she is affectionately known on her blog!) has given an incredible step by step. I suggest you check it out at: http://www.thechallahblog.com/2011/01/basic-challah-recipe-1-with-honey.html
