Just working on my challah skills basically. I used the same recipe as the previous times, again doubling it so I get two cute loaves instead of just one. I’m still working on the braiding so that’s why I tried two different styles.
This time the rise seemed a little slower – not sure if it’s because I switched yeast brands, possibly. It continued rising in the oven, which is ok.
There was also a slightly weird flavor. I’m fairly sure it was from the countertop I kneaded it on, which may have had some trace soap on it. Oops! Anyway it was still good enough to eat, yay challah.
