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.

Maybe not the real ones but really tasty kibinai

Maybe not the real ones but really tasty kibinai

I must confess – I have never ate the real kibinai ? But this weekend we had some guests who likes kibinai a lot, and they said that these kibinai are very good (kibinai also agreed with guests “cause they disappeared from the plate very fast ? )

Cookies with cottage cheese

Once great grandparents brought from the farmer market home made cottage cheese for there beloved grandchildren. But the cheese wasn’t so delicious as everyone wanted so for a long time it sat quietly in the corner of a fridge and waited. But the day has come when this cheese was used for unsweetened cookies, that tasted something between cookies and baked cottage pancakes. Everyone was happy – children, because they got tasty snack, cottage cheese – because at last he was useful, and parents – that didn’t throw away spend money.

Sweet cookies with the mild taste of peanuts. And a little bit healthy because with oats 🙂 In original recipe used sugar for me was too much, so I used only white sugar and still for me cookies were too sweet. But my children ate have of cookies at once and hubby said that sweetness of cookies it just right.

Small cheese pies

Delicious little pies. If I have Vienna sausages, I put them in the filling too and all you have to do is to take tomato sauce for the great food 🙂

Crepes stuffed with broccoli and cheese

I’m very excited when the recipe which I chose to prepare is admitted 110 percents. I wanted to make these crepes all week long, but all week I had no time to spend in the kitchen. And only this weekend the time has come 🙂 I’m very glad that I made only half portion because if there were more than four crepes I couldn’t stop eating. The filling is so light, with the gentle taste of broccoli and very nice taste of cheese. My hubby said he wasn’t hungry but ate one crepe and was very excited 🙂 The next time I will not make our usual crepes with cheese filling, but give a little bit more time and make these crepes.
