Intro: Apple, Cinnamon, Walnut Swirl
One bite of this bread will make you want more. This delicious bread has many flavours from the inside to the outside. A quite fluffy, chewy, and full of flavour swirl, would be excellent with a glass of milk on the side. The glaze over it brings everything together. The apples, walnuts, and cinnamon add an extra bit of flavour. The components of this dish blend very well with each other and complement each other's taste.
Step 1: Dough
1 cup of water, 1/2 cup milk, 1/4 cup butter, 4 cups bread flour, 2 tsp salt, 1/4 cup sugar, 2 1/4 red star active dry yeast.
Combine 1 cup of flour, yeast, salt, and sugar into a leg mixing bowl. Heat water, milk and butter until warm (120-130 f). Add liquid to solid. Mix with a wooden spoon until combined together. Knead dough until smooth and tacky. Put dough in lightly oiled bowl and turn grease top. Cover let rise overnight in fridge.
Step 2: Filling
2/3 cup sugar, 4 tsp cinnamon, 2 tbsp melted butter, 2 cups apples, 1 cup walnuts.
Divide dough into 2 sections let rise for 10 min. Combine sugar and cinnamon. Roll dough into12x8 inch rectangle. Lightly brush dough with melted butter. Sprinkle half of sugar and cinnamon. Place apples, walnuts, and sugar lightly into dough. Place in lightly greased loaf pan. Cover, let rise overnight in refrigerator.
Step 3: Glaze and Bake
1 cup powder sugar, 2 tbsp lime juice or milk
Bake in a preheated 350°F oven for 35-40 minutes, until golden brown. Place a tented piece of aluminum foil over breads the last 15 minutes to prevent over-browning. Brush with remaining melted butter. Remove from pans; cool on wire rack 10 minutes. Combine glaze ingredients; drizzle on loaves.
