I don’t even really know if it’s necessary to put words with these pictures.But I guess I can punch some stuff on my keyboard if you want.
APPLE CINNAMON TWIST BREAD happened over the weekend.A King Arthur recipe FTW, once again. With sugar, white flour, and smushed fresh apples in this loaf, what could be missing? Oh, a sweet glaze. We’ve got that too :).I was excited (and nervous!) to try this loaf for three reasons: 1) I’ve never made a twist bread; 2) I’ve never made a stuffed bread; and 3) I’ve never heard of or used lecithin granules. My experimental scientist side really came out in this one!
WTF is lecithin? I still don’t really know, but apparently it’s good for your liver and makes yeast happy. Go buy some and put it in ya’ dough.Back to the bread. The stuffing part was a bit difficult as I had apple filling oozing everywhere… but I was able to get most of the filling to stay confined within the loaf! Win!The bread rose really well (I’m giving thanks to the all white flour + lecithin) and came out nice and chewy. The recipe said to bake the two loaves for 30 minutes, but mine were done in about 20.
Which meant that I got to sample a slice ten minutes earlier than I thought I would. Which meant that my life improved drastically.Obviously I could not make this bread every weekend, because I would turn into a giant apple, Violet Beauregarde-style.
Mkay, I’m seriously rambling here, so let’s just finish the story, shall we?
Anthony and I ended up devouring one loaf and taking the other to our friends’ house. They cooked up perfect omelets (and bacon!) that rounded out an all-star breakfast.The end.
