Cherry Crumble Challah

By The Dreams Weaver
This challah is stuffed with homemade fruit preserves that are both sweet and tart. I used stone fruit in my preserves, which I think are quintessential summer fruits! The preserves swirl through the center of the challah and are topped with a crunchy oat crumble. Cherry Crumble Challah ~ The Dreams WeaverWhat you will need:Challah dough {recipe here}FillingHomemade fruit preserves {recipe here} or store bought works as wellTopping½ cup brown sugar½ cup old fashioned oats½ cup all purpose flour½ tsp cinnamon¼ cup canola oil or margarine/butter
