Apple Braid

This little treat was a cinch. It was sweet and lovely and just what this perfect fall weather needs.

Do you see all that apple-y goodness? Run along. Gather your apples. You only need 5-6 of them. Scurry scurry. Shan’t waste time!

Here’s the recipe:

Apple Braid

1 loaf of frozen bread dough, thawed
5-6 apples, peeled & sliced & diced
1 stick of butter
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. nutmeg
toasted almonds

– melt butter in sauce pan, add in the apples, and cook for a few minutes. add in sugars, cinnamon, vanilla, and nutmeg. cook until apples are tender.
-roll out the loaf, long and skinny.
– scatter apples down the middle (try not to drag all the sauce with, or after you bake you will have just a soggy pile of apples. no bueno.
– cut strips along the sides of the loaf, braid the lovely fellow shut.
– bake at 325 degrees until golden brown (20-25 min)
– cool
– pour icing over the top (I chose the classic milk, vanilla, and powdered sugar route)
– sprinkle with almonds

Bake him good. Blow on him to cool him off super fast so you can lather him in icing. Sprinkle with nutty drops of love. Then eat.

We ate the apple braid for breakfast for the most part. It was lovely. A nice complement to a steaming cup of coffee.

Our camera died half way through the apple braid’s process. So my dull phone photo will have to suffice. I know you want to grab that fork and eat it.

I highly recommend a lovely breakfast of apple braid & coffee. Give it a shot.
