Apple Brie Bread with Almonds

Apple Brie Bread with AlmondsColder weather here means more baking and I've been baking like crazy lately.

This is a good recipe for breakfast, a nice blend of sweet and savory that is lovely with a cold glass of milk or juice--and boy does it smell nice when it's baking.

For dough:
1 cup milk
2 eggs
1/3 cup butter
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon yeast

For filling:
2 tablespoons butter, divided
4 cups diced granny smith apples
½ cup brown sugar, divided
3 tablespoons slivered almonds
4 oz brie
1 teaspoon flour

Apple Brie Bread with AlmondsPut all the ingredients for dough in a bread machine, set on "dough" cycle. When it's finished, roll out dough in large rectangle.

Melt 1 tablespoon of butter and sauté apples over medium-high heat for 10 minutes. Add ¼ c brown sugar and cook 5 min. Remove from heat and stir in almonds.

Spoon mixture down middle of dough rectangle, cube brie and arrange along top. Make diagonal cuts along sides and braid over the filling. Let rise, then sprinkle remaining brown sugar and butter (mixed together) over top.

Cook at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.

Looks yummy! One day *sigh* one day I'll have a bread machine that does the dough work.

Anonymous didn't do its homework :) You post every day!

Looks good and easy to adapt for those of us who don't have bread machines. I think I'm going to try this one!

Looks delicious! Will definitely try but I was wondering if I can replace the apples with another kind or are these preferable with the brie cheese? Thanks.

This looks fun to make.

You can use pears, most definitely. In fact that's what I used this last time :) Sneaky of me.

Every Saturday I make something special to go with Saturday and Sunday coffee in the morning. I'm TOTALLY making this next week. I found an amazing recipe for cinnamon rolls for this weekend. I'm posting that soon! Nothing says cozy during cold weather months like breakfast goodies baking in the oven!

Oh, this looks so yummy! It would make a great Christmas breakfast.

Amy @ Experience Imagination said...

Yum. Too bad I don't have all the ingredients on hand or I would be making that for breakfast (or maybe dessert).

I love braided bread...it's so easy, but looks so fancy. I think I'll try this, but since I don't have a bread machine, I'll probably start with that freezer bread dough...it'd work, right?

How cool to add the brie!!!!! I love brie and apples for a snack, but would have never thought to add it to a pastry!!! Thanks!
