We invite you to join with CBI Chef Margo as she makes/demonstrates baking hamentaschen and chocolate babka.
Hamentaschen (Pareve/Dairy Free)
Note: For this dairy-free version of hamentaschen, the dough itself needs to be made and chilled the day before if anyone is interested in making this along with Margo.
It’s very simple - mix all the dry ingredients in a bowl, add all the wet ingredients and zests and mix until well incorporated. Then form into a disk, wrap in plastic and refrigerate.
Here are the ingredients needed for hamentashen:
4 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
Pinch of salt
2/3 cup neutral oil (i.e. canola, avocado etc…)
2 large eggs and 1 egg yolk
1 cup sugar
Zest of 1 lemon
Zest of 1 orange
2 -3 tbsp fresh lemon juice (half a lemon)
4-5 tbsp fresh orange juice (or bottled orange juice)
Raspberry or apricot preserves, poppy seed filling or prune filling or any filling you desire
1 egg for a wash
This will be a demo only. Making a babka is a very time intensive process - with three separate risings. Thus it doesn’t lend well to a follow along cooking demonstration. But join us to see how Margo does it!
