apple bread
– prepare filling first by peeling skin of apple. Cut apple into small chunks
– place apples, sugar and lemon juice into a saucepan and cook on medium-high heat. Ensure you watch the saucepan so that the bottom does not get burnt
– turn off fire when the mixture has nearly dried up. Add in ground cinnamon and mix well. Set aside
– prepare dough by mixing all ingredients except butter. Knead till it becomes a soft and pilable dough
– add butter. Incorporate well and knead till window pan stage is achieved. Proof till double in size
– punch dough down gently and divide into 45g portions. Let dough rest for 15 mins
– flatten each dough and roll into a flat disc. Fill dough with apple-cinnamon filling, and seal. Place dough seam side down on parchment paper
– proof buns till double in size and brush with egg wash
– top gently and carefully with broken pretz (be very careful not to puncture buns too much) and flaked almonds
– bake in lower rack of preheated oven at 180 degrees C for 18 mins

Personal notes

– i did not place my buns into moulds (i.e. what the recipe contributor did) and baked my buns in the middle rack for 12 mins
– i used cloves to replace pretz

Also baked my favourite chocolate pound cake again (´ω`♡%)… this is really the love bake of my family members and friends….   if you check out my blog, you’d realised how many times i posted this…. i mean, we just cannot resist it.

made all these just in time for the hubby to take away as gift packs for his meeting….
