There are a number of reasons why people might think I’m crazy. Making home-made bread with a four-month-old is one of them. Choosing a recipe with multiple rise times for my first go at is another. Selecting the recipe, because it looked good, and I didn’t want to buy special flour is probably at the top of the list. Yes, I chose this recipe, because I didn’t want to have to find special flour. You heard it here first.
After carefully braiding and darting from the baby to my rising bread, I realized that I’m completely nuts. Luckily, my brand of crazy means really good bread. I mean really, really good. Studded with apples and sweetened with honey, this challah bread is as pretty as it is delicious.
While I’m not sure when I’ll make it again, it boosted my confidence in the bread department. I think I’ll be trying something simpler next time and save this beautiful bread for a day without the baby.
Next month, I’m tackling Indian food as my food project. Ideas on where to start? I don’t own a cookbook on it and have no clue where to begin.
