I decided to make a bread that I could use for sandwiches this week. I loved how the Cook's Illustrated Challah turned out, so I decided to try the Bread Baker's Apprentice version.
It was even easier to make than CI version. Unfortunately, I was a little obsessed with finishing a row on Stacey's baby blanket, so it a little dry. Not burnt exactly, just not the right crumb.
In order to cover up my mistakes I whipped up some cashew almond butter (1 c cashews, glug of vegetable oil, glug of honey: process it looks like nut butter). The bread and the cashew butter go together beautifully.
