  1. mill whole grain for 1 minute on speed 9-10

    add all remaining ingredients and process on speed 5 for 6 seconds

    when ready, knock down and roll into large rectangle.

    Visually divide the rectangle into thirds lengthways.

    cut ribbons down the outer edges to plait later.

    Pile filling into centre then "plait" the bread by alternately folding one ribbon from left to right then right to left.

    tuck in the ends and brush with an egg wash (you can allow it to rise again a little at this point, providing your filling isn't too soggy!

  2. filling
  3. chop two large green apples into eigths and then into small pieces.

    Heat bowl and butter for 1 minute on varoma temperature, speed 2.

    Toss in apples and walnuts and continue on varoma temperature for a further 3 minutes.

    add molasses sugar and continue varoma temperature speed 2 for a further 2 minutes.

    Ideally cool and strain (juice can be boiled down later to make a yummy glaze!)


  4. To serve
  5. serve with a dish of uncooked molasses sugar or brown sugar and a nice piece of blue and if you have them, perhaps some muscatdels or dried turkish figs...and a glass of red...

    This is so pretty, Elizabeth.  It is similar to the Fruit and Pepperberry bread in Devil of a Cookbook.  I'll try yours soon.  Thanks for the recipe.
