Pillowy Honey, Apple, Cranberry Challah

For some reason, I’ve been day dreaming of challah for two days: thinking if pillowy, shiny brown mounds of the plaited loaf, full of some sweet filling and swirling with flavor. I realized Rosh Hashanah was approaching, calling to me, and although I’m not Jewish, I can appreciate holidays that require round, sweet breads to celebrate.

Ever since my sourdough starter died of heat and humidity, I've resorted to making yeast breads in my laziness. I could quite easily have a sourdough starter while we're in cooler climates, but I guess I've been more excited to do some experimenting on easier, quicker breads to be made while sailing or whenever the bread bug tickles our fancy.
