Twist bread reminds me of the baked goods of my childhood. Every week, my grandmother would buy sweet glazed braided loaves filled with sweet apple and nuts from the local Jewish bakery.
These bakery beautiful and sweet seasonal apple cinnamon bread loaves from this month's King Arthur Flour's Bakelaong are perfect for your weekend brunch. Keep one and give the other as a gift. Hopefully, to someone deserving of this deliciousness.
This classic, beautiful recipe, perfect for those just picked apples or if you are just feeling in a Fall baking mood. I love fall baking moods.
Aside from a brunch option, a slice of this glazed goodness stuffed with sweet and nutty cinnamon flavor is also a perfect companion to a cup of coffee or tea.
The recipe calls for a cup pecans or walnuts. I used a half a cup of each. You can leave the nuts out entirely if you like.
This twist bread does take quite a bit of time to create. There are three separate resting periods for the dough. However, there is a choice to form the loaves and place them in the fridge to rise, bake and glaze the next morning. However, if you plan ahead and weave the steps into your daily routine, you'll be done in no time.
The steps themselves are quite simple. As usual, in addition to the recipe, King Arthur Flour provides a Step By Step that holds your hand and walks you through the entire process from start to finish.
You can easily switch up the filling to pear. Quince would also be a lovely choice.
