So You Wanna Make a Round Challah…(with video!)

My four year old daughter has recently become obsessed with a mom vlogger on Youtube.

I want you to get a sense of her oeuvre, so I’ve included a typical video below. She and her daughter Madison spend most of their time shopping, talking about shopping, eating some waffles and discussing important errands like fixing that pesky leaky tire.

As an homage to Mommy Etc, I decided to vlog our attempt to make a round challah for Rosh Hashanah. I can confidently say that after you watch this you’ll definitely have a general sense of how to do it…ish.

Thanks for watching and l’shana tova!

    I need to give this a try now that the summer heat is lifting from the Ohio valley. Can’t bake when it’s 90% humidity.

      Oh, I know! There’s a whole host of cold weather dishes I’ve been waiting for!

    This reminds me that I need to make more videos for my daughter.

    I couldn’t watch more than a minute of that Mommy Etc video though. I do not understand this genre. Your video is infinitely more entertaining!

    My 3-yo niece watches youtube videos and I don’t know the channel but they’re all either cupcake decorating or some woman with an annoying cutesy voice who is always poking at dolls and saying how cute they are. I tried googling it, there were too many results.

      I’m glad we made it!

      Emilia likes those videos too. Had her brother not been watching Minecraft youtube videos, she never would have gone down this path. But we’re in too deep now!

    An old lady I know has a whole lot of these recipes. (The same woman I mentioned over in Kavin’s circumcision thread. Her grandmother was from Hebron, BTW.)

    I don’t really make much traditional Jewish food actually. I grew up in a reform household and we ate seasonal food more typical of Northern Californians than Jews. But challah is pretty darn good!
