Challah basket


Author: Aušra

Date:

Today we celebrate Easter in my son’s kindergarten. I was asked to bring few eggs, but I just had to put them somewhere. So I baked this basket 🙂 But while I was baking it, 2 eggs of 5 were eaten by my children, so I have to put candies to look basket pretty 🙂

Challah basket

Time needed:
Yields:
Calories: 2750 kcal / all

Ingredients:
1 cup = 237 ml

  • 25 g fresh or 2 tsps dried active yeast
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 cup oil
  • 4 cups flour
  • 1 egg for greasing the dough

Directions:

  • Mix milk with water.
  • Pour two spoons of that mixture into a glass, add yeast and leave for a few minutes.
  • Mix egg, water with milk, oil, salt and sugar in the bowl.
  • Slowly add flour.
  • After adding flour make the dough until it’s soft and elastic.
  • Leave it until it doubles it’s size.
  • After that make for a while and form rollers.
  • For making a basket you will need a bowl (glass and ovenproof). Wrap with foil the outside of the bowl. Turn the bowl upside down and form the basket.
  • Make it the same way the baskets are made.
  • Now form the brim of your basket.
  • Draw the bowl on a greaseproof paper. Make three long rollers of the dough and make a plait. Lay the plait on the drawn circle.
  • Now form three rollers more and make another plait. It’ll be the handle of your basket. Lay this plait over the diameter of your bowl.
  • After forming all basket parts coat them with egg yolk and bake until they’re gold.
  • Leave it and let the basket get cold.
  • Stick all parts together with toothpicks.
  • Enjoy!

Notes: I halved the recipe and use 0,5 liter glass bowls. It was enough for one basket.

Oat muffins with dried fruits

I don’t know why but I look at baking with dried fruits suspiciously. But now I’m ashamed… I baked these muffins and ate half of them all by my self… Sour milk gave the taste of cottage cheese. Strange, but we like it 🙂

Buns with bacon

We don’t eat smoked bacon with onions and bread often, just sometimes 🙂 But after visiting family in farm we got a big cut of smoked bacon. So I baked buns with bacon. I just love them, but my hubby don’t. Anyway, I baked and froze a lot of buns, so now I have snack or breakfast for a long time:)

Soda bread

Somehow I forget to set my breadmaker to bake the bread or remember only very late in the evening. If there was no bread the next day my hubby would be starving 🙂 So I had to do something. And have to say that hubby very liked the bread with cheese.
