Father Abraham – October 9

Beautiful Star Bread for today, the day the Church remembers the Patriarch Abraham.

And He took him outside and said, “Now look toward the heavens, and count the stars, if you are able to count them.” And He said to him, “So shall your descendants be.” Genesis 15:5

This seemed an ambitious bake for me but I really wanted to pull it off. I used Nutella in this bread instead of the cinnamon butter called for but if I ever make it again the cinnamon must be tried.

Do you ever suspect a recipe might be cursed? I almost gave up on the one. I mismeasured my flour but caught that before I went any further…thankfully. Then the dough after combining everything was so crumbly. I added milk but thought it might be ruined by this point but thought it wouldn’t hurt to just see what happened.

However what happened was just more frustration. I spilled all the egg whites for the wash, broke the parchment paper box trying to rip some paper out, then my flour container fell all by itself out of the pantry. I let this dough rise for a LONG time. It actually did do some rising to my surprise.

It cooked up well enough and smelled pretty good and at least Martha had fun licking the Nutella covered spoon. Maybe it’s a winner anyway.
