Megans Cookin: Whole Grain Challah Bread with Orange Zest and Chocolate Chip

Whole Grain Challah Bread with Orange Zest and Chocolate Chip

Challah Bread with Orange Zest and Chocolate Chip!

That is what I made with  December’s bonus recipe from the Healthy Bread in 5 Minutes Group. And there is still plenty of time if you want to bake a long with us. The official kick off is next month so ask Santa for that Cookbook and you’ll be set to go! Well…you’ll need a little Vital Wheat Flour but you can easily find that at your grocery store.

Christmas Challah Bread with Orange and Chocolate Chip

The original recipe called for cranberries and orange zest but I knew it would not get eaten in my household as it was written(except by me), so I substituted Chocolate Chips. I know the way to win my family's heart!

Christmas Challah Bread with Orange and Chocolate Chip

I brushed a thin glaze of orange juice and powdered sugar on it and sprinkled it with a course sugar. I also substituted the wheat germ for Cream of Wheat cereal. And I baked it all pretty in my new Kugelhoft Bundt Pan. Doesn't it look so jolly and merry? Perfect for the holiday festivities!

It made some super-duper toast and I’m sure it would make a dynamite bread pudding! I hope to find out! :)

Megan! This looks awesome! I still haven't baked mine, but soon! I think I'll save some of the dough for one of my bundt pans & see what happens - this is inspired!

I'd have to use the chocolate chips for my family too, but I'm sure either way, this bread would be delicious!

I have asked Santa for this cookbook for Christmas. I'll just have to keep my fingers crossed because my list was pretty long! It would be fun to join the group. Your bread looks fabulous!

Looks like your bread turned out terrific. I love seeing how everyone adapts the recipe for their family. Chocolate chips are definitely an awesome substitute. I made mine the other day and really liked it.
