Gluten-Free Challah Recipe
Hi, everyone. I am new to the gluten-free world (about a month now) and feeling SO much better than I have in the past couple of years. I am missing challah (braided egg bread traditionally eaten by Jewish people on the Sabbath). Does anyone have a recipe for challah or know where I can find one? Thanks so much!
Judy, I'll try the recipe from Gluten-Free Baking classics by annalise Roberts and let you know how it is. It will be a loaf - the cookbook says to "draw" a braid on the top with the tip of a knife. It won't work in the traditional braid, since GF breads are batters, not firm doughs. This is the book I adapted the Mandelbrot recipe from.
Hi Judy and Farrell,
I know there is a braided challah bread pan available although I can't locate the vendor just now. I learned about it at a GF baking conference. It compensates for the fact that most GF challah recipes cannot be handled for the braiding. I'll keep looking for the link. Thanks to both of you for joining our little group.
