The challah that browned too much
We have a guest coming over tonight, so I went for my standard guest loaf. 1/4 King Arthur WW flour, 2 tablespoons of flax meal. The six-strand braid is always a challenge for me, but I only had to do it twice today. After the first time, I realized that some of the strands were too fat, so I cut them down and had enough for a baby challah, also six-strand.
I baked a couple of flax sourdough loaves just before the challah. And forgot to turn the temperature down. What's 125 degrees between friends??
The baby challah turned out well. We'll see how the guest likes Extra Brown Challah. Yikes, from the other side of the room, it looks like some kind of dark Halloween trick or treat bread:
