Repost: A Challah the Size of Your Head

This is a repost from my personal blog.

The Hazz and I have been on a kick lately to try out some new and fun challah recipes.  This sometimes entails trying them out on guests or making them on the wrong day of the week as experiments... Ever since enjoying Nutella crepes in Paris, we've had a great time eating Nutella... on pretty much everything.

Anyway, Nutella Challah was a MAJOR success.  And by major, I mean GIGANTIC.
A Challah the size of your head

Seriously, you'd think I would have realized that the loaf was too big before I put in the oven.  But once the Nutella had been spread in, there was no turning back.  I'm pretty sure that I could have made two loaves.  But, since we have Tot Shabbat at the synagogue tonight and don't need the challah for dinner, I just made one.... the size of my head.  No, really.  Look...

A and the beast     J and the beast

But luckily, since its not for a dinner, we could dive right in.  Score!!!  And even better, the dinner tonight is milchig, so we can come back home and eat more.  The Hazz's pumpkin challah is in the oven now.  More on that after Shabbat!
Shabbat Shalom!
