View of Shabbat - April 29th

Chocolate Chip Challah (and the macro zoom and focus on my camera) is one of my most favorite things.  I've found that you can really achieve this sucessfully in several ways.  Either, you can knead the chocolate chips in pre-rise.  Or, you can knead them in at braiding, being careful not to overknead.  I think I actually like the latter option better because the chocolate is almost completely infused into the bread, rather than poking out.  It's a nice surprise!

A quick shot before Shabbat... sorry it's a bit blurry :)

  1. I always struggle with kneading them in pre-braid, because I'm worried about making the challah too dense. But you're right, I hate burned perimeter chips. :)
