Apple Strudel Loaf
I've been trying to a get a head start on the next Healthy Bread in Five bread braid coming up. Our challenge this time is to use the Soft Whole Wheat Sandwich Bread recipe in the book this time in several ways.
I chose to make the Apple Strudel Loaf for my first with this recipe in hopes my husband who doesn't care for whole wheat would help eat this one up.
I made the Soft Whole Wheat recipe with a little change.... KA White Whole Wheat flour instead of plain Whole Wheat flour...oops, two changes, I accidentally bought KA bread flour last time instead of unbleached AP. SO this recipe has a little more gluten with the bread flour in it. That's okay with me as I have a little trouble with rise sometimes with my breads.
This recipe is SO lovely...think I'll keep the white whole wheat and the Bread flour. It, also, has honey and eggs....yum. It almost overflowed my big 6 liter bread container.
In this one picture you will see that one end looks a little like it is deflated...it is, some of the filling leaked out. Next time...a little less filling I think is in order to facilitate the rolling up of the dough.
In the version for the strudel loaf, I believe I could have used half the apples though as there was so much filling I could barely fold it over and plop it in the pan much less try to actually roll it up. It also made it a little messy to cut and serve. However, we persevered :>)
Hubby did like it and ate quite a bit........that helped me contain myself from eating too much.
