Apple braid

Apple braid
Hi all, I’m Rachael from La Fuji Mama and am tickled to have been asked by Jenna to share one of my crazy concoctions here on Eat, Live, Run! Jenna is very brave! I’ve had apples on the brain lately, partially due to these three handsome little fellas sitting on my counter top waiting for me to decide what they would become. I love a good apple pie, but wasn’t really in a pie mood. Then, when I woke up one morning craving homemade bread, inspiration struck. Apples + Homemade Bread = An Apple Braid! tossed them with cinnamon, sugar, and lemon juice and threw them in the oven to start cooking while I made the dough for the braid. When the dough was ready, I rolled it out into a big rectangle, then cut each side into strips. The finished braid went onto a baking sheet into the oven until it was a nice light golden brown. The whole process is much more enjoyable if you have a sous chef to help out. Apple Braid Makes 1 bread (approximately 12 servings) Print this recipe! For the Apple Filling

Cold Process Soap Making for Beginners! « offbeat & inspired About 2 years ago I went on a skincare health kick.
