Challah Project Sumary


It has now been over a year since the start of my Challah Project. I have made challah nearly every week (of course not all were posted) and have learned better how to “read” my dough. I have learned that I like a fairly sticky dough before letting it go through it’s first rise. I have decided I do not like sourdough challah, although I love sourdough bread. I love stuffed challahs – whether sweet or savory. My son prefers simpler challah, fluffy without much added to it; surprisingly, he does NOT like chocolate chip challah – unless it is french toast. Yes, we have learned that just about any challah works well as french toast, even if we were not thrilled with it as a challah by itself. I have more to learn, so the project will continue a bit longer, and will then morph into a project on Jewish breads in general.

  3. Wow, I’m impressed! They all look so good. I’d like to try your rye version. I’ve never tasted one made with rye–that I knew of. But that brown sugar one, with its pomegranate glaze, I could eat that right off the screen if I could conjure it just right!

Let me know what you think of this post, and if you try the recipe, please let me know how it was and any suggestions you have. Thanks, Andrea
