The next bread we were supposed to make in the BBA Challenge was actually casatiello - an Italian bread containing salami and cheese. I'm a life-long vegetarian, so I was planning on tweaking the add-inns anyway, but I needed a bun to take to 4th of July dinner, and it didn't seem as appropriate as challah. So, I'm going out of order here, and I hope to make the casatiello sometime soon.
Back to the challah. This is something I've never made, and honestly, never eaten much of.
This bread was amazing. It made equally wonderful buns and loaf, and let me say that it makes spectacular French toast.
It was easy and fun to make, and I'm sure I'll make it again!
To the other BBA slow and steady bakers: I know I jumped a little ahead here, I just couldn't help myself!!! I'll get back in step with the next bread...
