Night two of Rosh Hashanah: Challah with Golden Raisins and a Streusel Topping!
I followed the same recipe as the Apple Challah, but (obviously) without the apple filling. I added a few handfuls (maybe 2/3 cup?) of golden raisins into the mix in cycle of the bread machine, and then followed the the woven round method to shape it. I added an egg wash at the end, and sprinkled it with a super simple streusel topping (1 tablespoon margarine, 2 tablespoons flour, and 3 tablespoons sugar plus a shake of cinnamon).
And if I do say so myself, it turned out beautifully!
This loaf was nearly as good as the apple challah taste wise. Maybe not quite as exciting, but still damn tasty.
