Week 39: Blueberry Lemonade Challah

Welcome British readers!  As you know (and the ‘yanks probably don’t), Nu? Magazine has taken the initiative to be the first print publication to feature an Adventure in Challah!  See it in the Summer Issue on Page 12 (page 7 of the PDF).  So, for all of you Brits looking for awesome challah variations, welcome!

We’ll get to the recipe and write-up in a moment, but since we have some visitors from across the pond, I’d like to share a few helpful incites:

  • There’s a misprint in Nu? and unfortunately it’s in the title of the piece — This recipe is for blueberry lemonade challah.  It’s blueberry challah’s sassy-in-a-mildly-inappropriate-way cousin.
  • We leave the “u” out of words like ‘color’ and ‘neighborhood’.  In America, we feel that it’s ok to wear shorts (short pants? knickers?) to nice restaurants if it’s hot out.  I think that this lackadaisical mentality and losing the “u” stem from the same place.
  • What we call french fries, you call chips, what we call chips you call crisps and what you call Latkes, we call chipwiches.  Well, not really, but if you visit The States, find an ice cream truck and ask for a chipwich.  You won’t be disappointed!

Week 30: Churros Challah

Churro(s) challah!!!

Is it churro or churros?  Is it like Dodgers and Lakers, where you dont know if that’s the actual name, or if they always pluralize it, even though there is a legitimate singular form?  Or is it like Vin Scully, where, as a kid, having never seen his name in writing, I was never sure if it was “Vin Scully” or “Vince Cully”.

Enough witty banter.  I refuse to do the research on this one, so Churros Challah is what we will call it.

How did I make it, you ask?  Start with the cinnamon challah recipe.  That’ll make your churro(s) dough.  That’s the easy part.  Now figure out how to make sugar and cinnamon stick to the outside of a baked challah.  Good luck.
