Today's Musing is a follow up to that story. I finally had a chance to make my very first Challah bread, and it is delicious!
I chose a Challah that had golden raisins as an ingredient. After preparing the dough, I opted to make a "coiled" Rosette Challah. I rolled out two 36" ropes. I then made a twisted rope by taking the two strands and twisting them around each other to make one rope. I then coiled the twisted rope into a mound. I let it go through the final rise and then brushed it with a beaten egg wash.
Here are links for the recipe and websites that shows how to make the rosette shape.
