Maple Nut and Apple Bread Recipe




Maple Nut and Apple Bread Recipe

Ingredients :
1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
1/4 cup warm water (110° to 115°)
1 cup warm 2% milk (110° to 115°)
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup butter, melted
1 large egg
1-1/2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon maple flavoring
1/8 teaspoon ground cardamom
1-1/2 cups whole wheat flour
2-1/2 to 3 cups all-purpose flour
FILLING:
1 cup finely chopped peeled tart apple
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup finely chopped walnuts
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon maple flavoring
GLAZE:
3/4 cup confectioners' sugar
1/8 teaspoon maple flavoring
2 to 4 teaspoons 2% milk
1/4 cup maple syrup

In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add milk, sugar, butter, egg, salt, maple flavoring, cardamom, wheat flour and 1 cup all-purpose flour. Beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough (dough will be sticky).
Turn onto a lightly floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, 6-8 minutes. Place in a bowl coated with cooking spray, turning once to coat the top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
Line two greased 8x4-in. loaf pans with 15x4-in. strips of parchment paper, letting ends extend up sides; grease paper. Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide dough in half. Roll each portion into a 14-in. circle. In a small bowl, combine filling ingredients; spread half of filling over each circle. Cut each circle into 16 wedges. Roll up wedges from the wide ends and arrange in prepared pans.
Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 350°. Bake until golden brown, 25-30 minutes. Lifting with parchment, remove from pans. Remove parchment; let cool on a wire rack. Mix together confectioners' sugar, maple flavoring and enough milk to reach drizzling consistency. Drizzle loaves with glaze and maple syrup.

Test Kitchen Tip :
It's important to line the pans with parchment or non-stick foil or the bread sticks to the bottom of the pan.
