Jalá!

23 Sep

I am very proud of my jalot (challahs) that I made for Rosh Hoshana… I always blame the lack of quality ingredients and my barely equipped kitchen as an excuse why my cooking experiments don’t work out… this is probably the best abroad challah I have made to date – could use a little more flavor, but over all nice consistancy.
I ditched the old challah recipe I had (sorry mom) and found a new one online at one of my favorite blogs: http://smittenkitchen.com/2008/09/best-challah-egg-bread/. I tried to follow it the best I could given lack of any proper measuring apparatuses…
It turned out pretty well even though I burnt the top a bit because I had to flip it over last minute…that’s what happens when there is just two heat settings on the stove: off and flames.
