Flour Friday: Apple Bread

This recipe is from a 1988 Finnish magazine Nomad’s grandmother had saved for some reason. Maybe for the many recipes for breads it has, a lot of them look really great. Anyway, considering its the harvest season and apples are plentiful this year (well, at least over here they are), here’s a bread which calls for apples. It also has cinnamon, which in combination with the apples brings a wonderful holiday aroma into your house while baking!

Apple Loaves

2,5 dl plant based milk (I used oat milk)
25 g yeast
1 tsp salt
0,5 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp sugar
3,5 dl grated apples
9-10 dl bread flour
0,25 dl oil

Heat the milk a little and dissolve yeast in it. Add salt, cinnamon, sugar and grated apples. Knead a dough with bread flour, add oil in the end of kneading. Cover with a towel and allow to rise.

Punch the dough down and form two bread loaves. Put them on baking sheet, cover with a towel and allow to rise again. Cut shallow slits with a sharp knife on the surface of the risen breads. Bake in 200 Celsius degrees for half an hour or until done. The bread is ready when it sounds hollow when you knock the bottom of the bread.
