Yum! I'd love to learn how to make challah. How did yours turn out Alix?

Tomorrow I'll be making brownies. I'll put peanut butter chips in the batter, then top with mini marshmallows for the last 7-8 minutes of baking. gooey deliciousness!

There was little if any noticeable difference between the two loaves, despite the different treatment.

Here's a pic of what's left. Not especially high, but the crumb is nicely open.
Russ,

The volume of your loaf looks fine, the height is limited by the diameter of your cooking vessel. If you want it higher, either increase your ingredients by 25-50% so they fill out the pan, or use a pan that is smaller in diameter. If you have a nice sized pot (which it appears you do), I would increase the ingredients by 25%, and if you're still not getting the height, then go to 50%. I have several pots that get a 150% sized recipe. My oblong baker gets 150%, and the loaf looks like this:



Here is a comparison between standard and 150%:

That's it! JoeV, I'm comin over.
I've had it with you tempting me with your wonderful looking treats.
Knock it off! < Then invite me over.
Sleeping Cookies/Magic 6 Way Cookies/Triple lemon bundt cake.
I'd dare to take a picture if they are lovely, even slightly lovely.
We'll just have to wait and see.
