I cannot personally share the recipe since the book was just released, but you will find it here. Michelle at Big Black Dog is hosting the HBin5 Bakers as we start baking our way through Healthy Bread in 5 Minutes a Day and Jeff Hertzberg and Zoe Francois will make occasional guest appearances there and share bonus recipes from their book.
I had never made challah bread before so this was a fun challenge for me. Be sure to read my notes below.
I decided to add a handful of walnuts to my dough and I'm so glad I did. I found the challah to be delicious with the trio of cranberry, orange and walnuts.
Today, I toasted a few slices for breakfast and it was wonderful with butter!
*I halved the recipe for the first time making it as the recipe states that it can be easily halved or doubled.
*I added about 3/4 of a cup of whole walnuts to my halved recipe.
*The dough should really be prepared a day ahead since working with the cold dough was so much easier and the loaf turned out much better. I speak from experience since I tried both ways.
