Apple braid

Pinterest inspiration has struck again…this time in the form of an apple braid!

From the moment I re-pinned this puppy I knew I wanted to try it out. Baking always intimidates me though (especially with making dough) so I wasn’t sure of how this would turn out. Surprisingly, I must say…it was pretty delicious. And relatively easy! Honestly, I was very surprised with how easy to follow the recipe was.

This recipe is originally from Rachael of La Fuji Mama, but was posted on Jenna’s site — Eat, Live, Run.

Here are the ingredients you’ll need. Don’t forget to visit Eat, Live, Run for the full recipe. This is a must-try. :)

For the Apple Filling

3 medium-size Granny Smith apples
3 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
2 teaspoons lemon juice

For the Bread

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

For the Glaze

1/3 cup confectioner’s sugar, sifted
5 teaspoons whipping cream
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Pinch of kosher salt
Pinch of nutmeg

Here’s my attempt (I forgot a finished product photo, oops!)
