TWD – Tuesdays with Dorie
This was my first time making challah. This particular recipe was a lot like making brioche dough, but with a bit less egg. Although, this challah dough was a bit stiffer than the brioche dough I’ve made previously.
I made half a recipe, and mixed it in my stand mixer. It’s really easy to pull this together. Rolling the logs took a bit of time. Since the logs kept springing back, I stopped to let them rest a number of times. The bread baked up beautifully, with a wonderful oven spring and deep gold color.
I plan to freeze it for later this month, so I haven’t actually tasted it yet. But, it looks and smells wonderful.
To get the recipe check out the book Baking with Julia, by Dorie Greenspan.
