Let’s Get Started!
The Ingredients To Gather:
3 Granny Smith apples
3 tablespoons sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
2 teaspoons lemon juice
2 1/2 cups bread flour
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon instant yeast
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup warm water
2 1/4 teaspoons vegetable oil
1/3 cup confectioner’s sugar
5 teaspoons whipping cream
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Pinch of kosher salt
Pinch of nutmeg
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Peel, core, slice apples into thin slices, cut slices in half. Toss apple pieces with sugar, cinnamon, lemon juice. Bake apple filling for 15 minutes. Remove from oven, set aside.
Begin preparing the bread dough. Mix dry ingredients together. Add water, oil, mix dough for 6 minutes using an electric mixer on medium-high speed.
Spray a smooth clean surface with cooking spray, turn dough out onto the surface. Knead dough briefly to give it a smooth surface. Spray a rolling pin with cooking spray, roll dough out into a large rectangle, about 12-inches by 16-inches in size. Lift onto a greased baking sheet.
Cut each side into strips about 1-inch wide down each side, leaving the center third of the dough uncut. Spread apple filling down the middle third of dough. Fold strips of dough into the center, crisscrossing the filling by alternating strips from each side. Lightly press ends to seal, straighten out the braid with your hands, if necessary.
Bake for 25 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove from oven, let cool for several minutes.
Whisk together glaze ingredients until blended and smooth.
Brush glaze in a thick coat over the entire surface of the apple braid while it is still cooling. Transfer the braid to a cooling rack set on a baking sheet o finish cooling and prevent the bottom of the braid from becoming soggy from sitting in any pooling glaze. Slice, serve.
