The only up side to this virus has so far been that it has motivated me to finally try making challah.
Let me be clear, I am not the world’s best baker. The recipe I used was from Rochie Pinson. Even using metric cups instead of imperial it worked out just great! So ridiculously excited about finally baking and eating my own challah.
I even said the blessing for the sacrifice of challah, (you burn a small portion of it to symbolise the bread given to the priests in the temple, I think), even though I technically didn’t have to because the size of the dough was small.
The only problem was, my toddler ate the raw sacrificial dough before it got in the oven…
