Cranberry Orange Challah Loaf
I can't braid well, so today I gave up and baked my Friday challah in a large Pullman pan. As you can see, it turned out nicely.
This is just my standard challah with a handful of chopped cranberries, some raisins, and the zest of an orange kneaded in at the end. Nothing fancy at all, yet it really looked impressive at dinner. Anyway, something to try if you're feeling unable to fiddle about trying to braid a bread at 4 AM. Yes, I'm still waking at 3AM. This is just payback for all the years I didn't suffer jet-lag, when everyone else was stumbling around like a zombie.
