Easter – that’s somewhat a milestone for the Summer on its way, right? Sun was shining today, and today it didn’t snow. It even felt warm in the sunshine, and I’m almost over with my flue. T-shirt weather is gonna be here sooner than I think.. ..or then I’ll catch another flue in believing so. Oh well. Whatever the weather, I’ve baked.
This year the new Easter thing I tried was challah. Guess I was inspired by all the braiding we did in our bakery. You see, I worked the last week like crazy decorating cookies, so I didn’t actually get to braid anything. Had to do it at home then. My challah turned out to be like pulla without sugar. Without a lot of flavor, actually. Carlos liked it. Well me too, once I covered it with delicious cream cheese and ham or fried it on a pan with eggs. Good basis for yummy breakfast, I guess, but not a bread to enjoy as plain.
Made also pasha, as always. Made a chocolate cake, which had nothing to do with Easter. Made garlic bread, and this one I even managed to photograph as you can see below. Tomorrow I’ll make a pie with quark and peaches. Now I’m making an oatmeal bread.
Hope this sun keeps on shining. The whole of Germany is sick of snow, believe me in that.
