Fall is here and that means the time has come for some comforting, warm dishes and falling in love with your oven all over again. The air is cooler, so we’re all wearing our comfiest sweaters and are relaxing with hot pumpkin spice lattes. I really love fall and all the special recipes for the season!
This month, I’m sharing a recipe for Sweet Potato Challah that is a perfect fit for the weather and honestly, tastes delicious. Fall is also the time for orange colored foods and my Sweet Potato Challah is perfect for this.
Every Friday, we have challah for the kiddush and from time to time, I like to try and add some new flavors to the challah bread - like a little upgrade. And since it’s fall, I’m adding sweet potato and cinnamon as the upgrade!
This Sweet Potato Challah has a festive look and a sweet taste, which is a perfect fit to the high holiday meals we are having now.
The recipe uses 2 kinds of flour - regular all purpose flour and whole wheat flour. The whole wheat flour and the sweet potato in the dough makes it a healthier recipe as well.
The shape of the challah is a braid made of 5 strands and to create the five strands, I watched this YouTube video. The video shows how to braid with 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9 strands! I liked the shape of the braid made with 5 strands and I think the outcome is lovely ☺
I shared in the past for a basic challah recipe and a whole wheat challah recipe - be sure to check them both out!
Let's get started, here is the recipe for this delicious and festive Sweet Potato Challah
