Experiment – Jelly Donut Challah – SUCCESS!

Ok, so it’s not really that much of an experiment… but it was so good, I had to share it with you. I took the basic original egg challah dough and created some 2-ounce minis (that’s the size of all my minis).  After they baked and cooled, I took a knife and cut a small slit in the bottom of each.  I used a cake decorating piping tip and ziplock bag to inject normal strawberry jam into the middle (if I had a syringe, I would have used it, but the piping tip was adequate). I then made a batch of normal glaze (powdered sugar, a dash of vanilla and water) and drizzled it over the top. It was simply amazing!  The taste was spot-on with a jelly donut and the fresh, soft challah was easily mistakable for a real donut.  I’d HIGHLY recommend you try this next chanukah!

    You could try mixing the jelly (or making your own) with agar. Agar withstands high temps and would maintain a jelly like texture throughout the bake.
