Apple Chunk Bread

Wow, a whole month of no new recipes - how did that happen? Possibly because I've been busy baking banana breads the whole time (my first traded treats since starting this blog - the recipient helped by taking my dog for a run). The other reason being that the weather has been consistently in the 30-34 range and thus much too hot to even think of baking. This past weekend we had nothing but rain so having cooled off quite a bit it only got to the low 20s today. It was clearly a sign to start using the oven again. So I whipped this little treat up.

Dough Ingredients
  • 2 1/4 t yeast
  • 3 c bread flour
  • 2 T sugar
  • 1.5 t salt
  • 1/2 t cinnamon
  • 1/4 c oil
  • 1 c milk
  • 1-2 apples, peeled, cored and chopped
  • cinnamon
  • brown sugar
  • butter, melted - optional
  1. Add dough ingredients to bread machine and run on the Dough cycle. (about 1h30)
  2. On floured surface, roll dough into rectangle.
  3. Mix apple pieces with cinnamon.
  4. If using butter, spread on dough. (I didn't use it.)
  5. Sprinkle with brown sugar and apple mixture.
  6. Roll. Tuck ends and place in 9x5x3 bread pan.
  7. Let rise until 1.5-2x, about 1 hour.
  8. Bake at 180C for 30 minutes.
  9. Slice and enjoy!
  • Make the rectangle very long, and when rolled cut into 9 pieces and bake in a 9x9 baking dish as cinnamon-apple-rolls.
  • Add nuts.
  • Put the whole thing back in the bread machine to bake.
