Guatemalan Challah
210 mins (prep 30, cooking 180)
11 ingredients
16-24 servings
From "A Blessing of Bread" by Maggie Glezer, this is another interesting twist on challah! Challah is the braided or twisted loaf of egg bread served on the Sabbath by Jews around the world, and recipes vary by region. This one is interesting for its use of cardamom. I've added the rising time in to the cooking time, so the total time is from start to finish.
