When I first wrote up my challah bread efforts, I mentioned that I was planning to make French toast but accidentally ate all of the bread instead of French toasting it oops. So I had to try again. This time I also doubled the recipe in order to help prevent accidentally eating it all. I braided the second loaf in six strands which I was worried was going to be a big mess, but actually ended up looking really cute & fancy!
French toast should be happening later today. Other notes about this recipe:
- I made sure to proof the yeast in advance and I didn’t have any issues with rising that I had had last time. Pretty sure the problem was that I made the water too hot.
- I used slightly less flour than I had the first time, which meant the dough was a little stickier? I was worried about it at first, but it seemed to bake up nicely anyway.
