This is a challah I baked yesterday. I got bored with my basic bread and decided to delve into my collection of bread recipes. This is a combo of various recipes. I switched out the sugar for brown rice syrup. It's not a huge amount but it does give the bread a very nice flavor note. I only used one egg; I think I should have used two or three.
I had so much dough that I made some burger buns and a tasty dried fruit twist.
One of the fun things about bread is the way it can be twisted and braided. This is a four strand plait.
I am thrilled to see my white (iris) flag blooming. I planted it many years ago around the time of the caterpillar invasion. Between bugs, drought, and a leaking pond I assumed it was dead and gone.
It's amazing what rain and the pond at its correct depth can do for a plant.
We have been enjoying a heat spell. Temps are supposed to drop a bit today, but it is still spring...soon to be officially summer!
As always, stay safe and healthy, and thanks for stopping by............*s*
