MA, Newton – Blacker’s Bakeshop


I found this tasty tidbit from the Boston Globe:

“An eggless challah sounds like an oxymoron: How can egg bread be made without eggs? Quite easily, it turns out, for the folks at Blacker’s Bakeshop in Newton. They have come up with an egg-free version of the traditional Jewish bread ($5) that’s a welcome treat for egg-allergy sufferers and ovo-eaters alike. The dough is similar to white bread, but the ingredient ratios are different so that the resulting texture is virtually indistinguishable from the typical braided challah. Several egg varieties are also available, including raisin, whole wheat, and chocolate chip. Plus, the entire bakery is nut-free and kosher-pareve, which necessitates that all baked goods be dairy-free as well. So when you finish your eggless egg bread, you can chase it with one of Blackers’ cheeseless cheesecakes.”
