Apples and Honey Whole Grain Challah

Our challenge for HBin5 this time was an apple and honey whole grain challah. Being a beekeeper, how could I not attempt this one? This dough came together easily and after leaving it in the refrigerator overnight I pulled it out to make my bread. This was one of the stickiest doughs that I’ve made so far in the challenge. I was hoping to do a traditional braid, but once I handled the dough, I knew that wasn’t going to happen. So, I took the easy way out and put it in loaf pans. This was a very light and airy bread, and I sent one loaf off with MJOL to share at a meeting he was attending. I sliced it up for easy serving and had to have a few of the wayward crumbs. It is very good and I think it will toast up very nicely.

We have an abundance of bread in the kitchen this week. I made my regular 2 sourdough loaves and now this extra loaf also. But, is that really a problem? I don’t think so.

Until our next baking adventure.

Can you ever have too much bread? I don't think so either. I liked this bread as well. I froze some of the dough. We'll see how it tastes in a couple of months. Happy Baking!

You just need an extra jug of wine! Or maybe hard cider to go with the apple theme. I froze some of this dough too, though only for a week or so, and it baked up fine. I too used a loaf pan for my second loaf.
