Eight-Strand Plaited Loaf

Give your bread a name and tell us about your recipe.

Green and Gold Challah. I’ve made challah once before but decided to add some food coloring this time around for a little extra flare. I did a practice plait before attempting the loaf, and I’m really happy with how it turned out! My cat Obi was excited, too!

Would you describe yourself as a rogue baker, or do you strictly adhere to the recipe?

Usually rogue, but I stuck to the recipe for this one!

Tell us about how you added a Wisconsin twist to your bread creation.

I added a literal “twist” of green and gold to my bread. I also used fresh eggs from the local farmers market.

How did you do?

Rocked it.
