Daring Bakers June – Apple Danish Braid

This month’s Daring Baker challenge was a yeasted danish braid with an apple filling. I had actually made something nearly exactly like this in a baking class, so it wasn’t too much of a challenge. I did, however, use real vanilla bean for the first time. =)

Apple Danish Braid

Recipe
“Danish Braid” from Sherry Yard’s The Secrets of Baking

Modifications
None.  I was even able to find cardamom for cheap at World Market.

We had it both warm from the oven and refridgerated the next day.  I do have to say it tasted better chilled.  3 stars out of 5.

  1. The filling looks stunning. I love the way your pastry looks. This was my first time in the DB, so I had fun with it too. I got my cardamom in Malaysia. Almost free.
