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.

Crepes rolls with minced meat

Loved from the first bite 🙂 Especially liked it my hubby – he’s the spicy food lover. For the children I didn’t even let them to taste 🙂 Not because of jealousy, just they still love mild tastes.

Ratatouilletarte or mini pies with vegetables

These mini pies are very delicious and warm, and cold. I thought I will miss meat, but I didn’t. I thought to bring them to work for lunch, but I couldn’t because we ate them all for breakfast…

Strawberry and rhubarb cake

It’s very bad when you don’t write the recipe in the blog after you eat the cake 🙂 Then you have to look for the recipe for a few days. I baked this cake when we were going to the village and strawberries were still in the season. It had to be all strawberry, but I had no time so I use rhubarbs as they were near me. Rhubarb and strawberry combination isn’t new – it fits perfectly. And the texture of the cake is more like sponge than a teacake. I liked it very much.

Swirl Pumpkin Brownies

Yes, I still have pumpkin puree 🙂 And this time it’s not so healthy but very chocolate brownie. It’s really easy, just I baked 10 minutes more. The next time, I will bake only 5 minutes more. And also, when I baked it second time I used less sugar, and my big girl tasted that. My hubby also agreed that brownie second time was not so good as the first time. So the third time I won’t change anything – these proportions are really perfect!

Chocolate butter cookies

I chose them because in the recipe it was written that they don’t spread. Yes, it’s correct. But I expected more crunchy, and they were soft. But they hole the form very well and are really delicious. I gave them as a present in my job. They disappeared in minutes 🙂 And I was asked for the recipes.
