Rosh Hashanah 2015

I plan to offer challah twist and french apple cake for the holiday. I was also thinking of either spiced apple bread pudding or chocolate bread pudding (both made with challah) If there is something else you’d like me to put on the menu, please let me know. (For instance, flourless chocolate cake

Also, someone has asked for “round” challah loaves, and i’ve said i can make them round or braided twist, but not braided round. So if someone wants round, please let me know.

Thanks!

My sourdough is GF/vegan. I use a tiny bit of EVOO.  Here is what the round loaf looks like.  It is crusty on the outside, until you wrap it in plastic. The first two days I left it in a paper bag to keep the crustiness.
