Daring bakers- lets challa la la la this month

I know – I am late yet again, (only in posting though, I did make the bread on time) but hey I thought I would not get to bake my favorite braided beauty

May’s Daring Bakers’ Challenge was pretty twisted – Ruth from The Crafts of Mommyhood challenged us to make challah! Using recipes from all over, and tips from “A Taste of Challah,” by Tamar Ansh, she encouraged us to bake beautifully braided breads.

I followed the recipe from here, except a. instead of earth balance I used crisco vegetable shortening and b. I replaced about 1/2 cup of AP flour with whole wheat flour.

The bread turned to to be gorgeous and lightly sweet. The only problem was I had to much more flour because whenever I tried to knead the bread it would go back to a very sticky state. But the end was good so it did not matter.
