Floral Challah!

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!

Of course, you can use your favorite challah recipe, but Maya from foodivakitchen shows a phenomenal step by step instructions on assembling this challah.

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!

Floral Challah using a basic challah recipe

  • 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)

  1. 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
