Apple Strudel Yeasty Pie - Bread

We love apple strudels, and I do try to make different varieties of bread, loaves and cakes (the not so sweet versions) for our breakfast.

And we have quite a lot of delicious apples now, new season, juicy, and just right for a lot of apple bread, cake, pie, whatever.

So this is my Apple Strudel Bread, or a Yeasted Apple Pie.

The dough is the normal sweet bread dough:

400g bread flour
220ml milk
1 egg
50g butter
2 tbsp sugar
1 tsp salt

For the Filling:

2 Granny Smith apples, thinly sliced
60g sugar
1 tsp cinnamon powder
1 tsp nutmeg powder

Make the bread dough as usual and set aside to proof, cover by damp cloth.
Meanwhile, add sugar and spice to the apple slices and let it sit aside to develop flavour.

Once dough is proofed to double, roll out into a rectangle, as it's a yeasted pie, or a bread, it doesn't have to be that thin.  Brush on a bit of melted butter, place the apple sliced on the pastry and roll up like a log, brush on melted butter as you roll.

I fold it into a ring and place it on slightly greased tray.  Let it proof for another 45 minutes to an hour

Brush on egg wash and bake in pre-heated 180C oven for 35-40 minutes...

  1. I have one apple left, so I may try halving this recipe. It looks so delicious and your instructions make it sound easy. I would love a slice for breakfast. Great post.
