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.

Pizza waffles

When today children heard that will be these waffles for lunch, impatiently waited until they baked and of course waffles disappeared quickly. Daughter even after a dance session ate all leftovers. She literally licked the plate clean (I had to look carefully into the plate to understand that it was not washed out :)). But don’t think that some wild people live down here in our house, I have to mention that she licked the sauce with waffle, not with the tongue 🙂

Chocolate cake with apples

This recipe waited for a year because last year somehow I was late – apples were gone, and I didn’t want to buy them. So this year this is my first (and the only) apple cake. And it was a really good cake! I baked only half of the recipe, but I got only one slice – my kids ate almost half of it at once. I could treat my parents only with the small slices… The cake is very moist and in reality it looks better than in the book. And I won’t judge my photos 🙂

Chocolate Zucchini Cake

One more cake with zucchini. Really great and moist. I didn”t have chocolate chips, but I didn”t miss them in the cake. Maybe with these chips the cake would be more delicious, but also more sinful 🙂

Pumpkin cutout cookies

I thought to bake these cookies for a long time, but… And one day I took the cup of pumpkin purée from the freezer and used only a half. So the day of that cookies has come 🙂 I rolled those cookies very thinly because I like thin cookies 🙂 Happy that I halved the recipe because I made a lot of cookies, really a lot. I give you the halved recipe.
