This braided apple bread has sweet bits of apple and walnuts that are layered with cinnamon coconut sugar twisted together with honey sweetened spelt bread. It’s free of eggs, dairy, and refined sugar. It’s also vegan friendly.
The fall has had me busy baking in the kitchen. When warm spices, sugar, and flour marry together in the oven it produces the best aroma in the world, one no candle could ever mimic. The fragrance is just so fitting, almost necessary, with the cooler weather and colorful leaves on the ground outside. We’ve definitely been benefiting from this idea anyway with warm treats frequently emerging from the oven.
With autumn here in full force, cinnamon + apple anything is the popular flavor in the house. Whether it’s in the form of pancakes, waffles, in a crisp, or galette, we’ve been enjoying the fruit thoroughly, especially in this braided honey spelt bread, layered with sweet apples, walnuts, and lots of cinnamon sugar.
This bread is dramatically beautiful, but is fairly simple to create. If you’ve ever made cinnamon rolls, this is very similar but the dough log is cut and twisted rather than sliced.
