Twelve in Ten Challenge (Whole Grain Challah with Cranberries)

Pin It
Woo hoo! 1 challenge from my Twelve in Ten complete! I decided to start off easy for the first month and decided to make some type of yeast bread. The bread of choice: Whole Grain Challah with Cranberries. This turned out SO well, much better than expected. More than anything, I was proud of the way it looks! It's quite a beaut-don't ya think? :)

I wanted to make a challah bread because of the fact that it's so impressive looking and a google search brought me to this blog, which had the challah recipe from Healthy Bread in Five. As you know, Ryan loves anything with cranberries and orange zest, so I thought this would be a good choice! I halved the recipe, which made enough for 2 loaves. Because the recipe is from a copyrighted book, I am instead linking to the Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day website, where they actually post the original recipe. My notes are below.

This bread is so yummy on its own, but we used it to make some excellent orange french toast, which I'll post tomorrow!

Whole Grain Challah with Cranberries Notes:**I ommitted the wheat gluten with no consequence
**When halving the original recipe, which called for 4 eggs, I used 3
**I kept my dough in the fridge for 4 days (made on a Sunday, baked on a Wednesday; the dough was relatively easy to handle)
