Sweet, spiced and floral, this date challah is braided with a sweet cardamom filling complete with rose water. It’s a show-stopping presentation, too!
To make this bread, I raided my spice drawer and bulk bin assortment and created the most luxurious mixture to stuff inside challah braids. Aromatic cardamom with sweet dates, pistachios and a touch of rose water was the most delicious fabulous combination. I would also suggest making this mixture and serving it along side a cheese platter as a sort of chutney.
I tuffed the mixture into all the braids rolled it tight and once it was all braided up, topped with with a brush of honey and more chopped pistachios and rose petals. I can’t even begin to tell you how amazing this challah is. It is so amazing we’ve already made it 2 more times. I’m telling you…THIS cardamom date and rosewater challah is where it’s at.
