Today I bring you a recipe for a delicious style of bread featuring honey and apples: Honey Apple Challah (Holla!)
6.) Fold the long side of the dough over the apples and seal the edges. Spread the other half of the apple chunks over the folded over dough. Cover the other side of the dough over the apples and pinch to seal the edges.
7. With a large, sharp knife, cut the dough into 16 uniform-size pieces. The pieces will be messy, not uniform, and apples will spill out, which is okay. Lay the dough chunks into the pan, doing your best to fit them in a single layer.
8.) Cover and let rise in a warm place until the dough appears puffy and has risen a generous 2" high, about 1 hour. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 325 degrees and set an oven rack in the lower third of the oven.
9.) Whisk together the egg and water. When the dough has risen, brush the top with the glaze.
10.) Bake at 325 degrees for 50-55 minutes or until the top is browned and the internal temperature of the bread reads 190 degrees. Remove from the oven and let the bread rest in the pan 5 minutes before loosening the sides.
11.) Drizzle with honey just before serving. We love it with robust Buckwheat honey!
