Daring Bakers Challenge: Challah Back, Y'all!
I made challah twice throughout the month. Both times I made one loaf with a cinnamon filling and one without. I was concerned with the honey challah that the cinnamon would clash with the honey, but they honey flavour is very subtle, so it was perfect.
I'm sure you're supposed to wait for it to cool. Pfft. Sliced this baby up while it was still steaming: there's really nothing like bread straight out of the oven. I was also eager to see how the cinnamon went this time. Not perfect swirls, but at least it was present.
As nice as thickly sliced bread is, the beauty of a braided loaf is getting to tear it apart. We grabbed some butter and ate the entire loaf warm. So delicious.
