So, I think this might be my new favorite, master recipe for Rosh Hashanah. In contrast to Stuffed Apple, this challah has apple mixed right into the dough. Use any type of challah you like (though I would recommend white over whole wheat flour). I used my Half Batch. Just before braiding mix together...
1 apple, peeled, and diced into small pieces (about 1/4 inch) - I used Fuji
1 tbsp sugar
1/2 - 1 tsp cinnamon (depending on your preference)
pinch of nutmeg
Now, unlike the stuffed apple challah, you're going to knead this right into the dough, a la chocolate chips. It's sticky, somewhat messy business, so have some extra flour on hand to knead in as necessary. What I love about this method is that the apples get incorporated throughout, so each bite has one. Plus, the whole dough becomes cinnamon scented, which is absolutely wonderful. Egg wash and top with cinnamon sugar if you like. Bake as normal.
Talk about a sweet new year :)
