Why, oh, why…

I think I’ve used this title before, but seriously.  Why will Maggie Glezer’s beautiful sourdough challah not work out for me?

This week, I was very respectful of the rise times for the sourdough and STILL the braids lost their shape and the breads flattened out miserably…

Will report back on the taste after Shabbos!

Dough, kneaded, before first rise, 10:00 p.m. Thursday night:

Braids, braided, 1 a.m. Friday morning, after first rise:

Out of the fridge, 9:15 a.m. Friday morning:

glezer challah 008

Three hours later, 12:15 noon Friday, still not much growth:

 glezer challah 009

Oven preheated, as ready as they’ll ever be:

 glezer challah 011

Baked and yes, the braids are almost completely GONE.  :-(

Sigh… these had better taste fantastic.  That’s all I can say!
