I did not make this but Oh. My. Goodness. was it ever delicious!  Of course, any kind of bread is my weakness. I could live on bread and box cereal. Now isn’t that healthy?

I follow Teresa’s Blog and she has been posting some amazing bread recipes!  I just drool…. Check them out!

Maple Glazed Green Apple Bread

For the Bread:
3/4 cup lukewarm water
2 teaspoons yeast
2 teaspoons salt
4 eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted and cooled
1/3 cup brown sugar
3 3/4 cups flour
4 Granny Smith apples, diced

For the Glaze:
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
3 tablespoons heavy cream
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions:

• Dissolve yeast and salt in lukewarm water. Add eggs, butter, and brown sugar; stir until combined.

• Add flour gradually and stir until dough forms, using hands if necessary to incorporate flour.

• Fold diced apples into dough. Leave dough in bowl, cover with plastic wrap, and let rise for 2 hours or until dough has doubled in size.

• Chill risen dough for at least three hours or up to five days.

• When ready to bake, grease two loaf pans with cooking spray.

• Turn out dough on floured surface. Shape dough into two equal-sized log-shaped loaves. Put dough logs in pans. Cover with plastic wrap and let rest one hour.

• Preheat oven to 350 degrees, then bake loaves for 50 to 60 minutes, or until loaves are golden on top and baked all the way through.

• When loaves are done, remove from oven and let cool slightly.

• Meanwhile, prepare glaze by combining sugar, heavy cream, maple syrup, and vanilla extract in medium bowl. Stir until smooth, then pour over warm loaves. Slice and serve.

    the proportions of liquid to flour seem out of proportion.I only put a third of the butter and it was really really loose dough.?

    I ended up adding about a cup more flour and it turned out wonderful. Cinnamon sugar instead of frosting because I wanted to be able to toast it. yummy, definitely will make again.
