Sliced Apple Challah

This year, I made a quick experiment for a new apple challah method.

I peeled a medium-sized Gala Apple and then sliced it thin with a mandoline.  Then I prepared a sugar-cinnamon mixture (2 parts sugar, 1 part cinnamon) and dipped each slice in the mixture.

I did two methods to place the apple slices in between the coil of the challah.  The best result was to try to keep the coil loose, otherwise, it will pop the slices up and out as the challah rises in the oven.

The result was tasty, sweet, and slightly crispy at the top of the slices!  Yum!

  1. This came out REALLY good - I was nervous because it really was a mess as I rolled it up... plus it took a crazy long time to cook - but everyone raved about it!

    I poured all the leftover sugar/spice blend on top when there was about 10 minutes left in the oven. so yummy.

  2. My husband is not a fan of sweet challah, but I think I will have to try this out for Rosh Hashana this year. I just found your blog due to the Purim post and really love it. Such a beautiful site and a wonderful reminder of the joys of making challah!
