Cinnamon Apple Twist Bread

This cinnamon apple twist bread had nothing to do with a bake challenge and everything to do with it looking fabulous!

This bake is perfect for breakfast, brunch, or dessert. Both of my children were big fans of this, which is RARE. The bread is nice and soft with swirls of apple cinnamon flavor throughout. It was tasty already without the icing, but definitely tastier with it. I warmed up a few pieces the next day in our toaster oven and they were still yummy.

I’ve made a few braided breads before and each time they look a little better. The braid looks tighter, less stuff spilling out the sides. Practice makes improved, I suppose.

I appreciate the fact that this doesn’t have chunks of apple. You shred it and really don’t notice the texture in the bake, just the flavor and the moisture from the apples. This recipe makes 2 large loaves, so be prepared to share or halve your ingredients. Now that I think about it, I did neither of those things and we just ate both loaves 😉

Yet another fantastic recipe from King Arthur Flour here.
