Apple – cinnamon braid

Filled with tasty apples with cinnamon and brown sugar from wheat – rye bread flour. It looks outstanding, works well with coffer or tea and reminds me of family meetings. It is so tasty, so its disappear in a blink of an eye.

To remember, that sheeted batter need to be straightaway transferred on oven-pan, previously sprinkled with olive oil. Thankfully to that you will not have to move ready cake, its prevent from damaging your cake. Yes, I did it. Proud of myself I have done my cake on wooden chop board. It looked amazing, but I needed to bake it. Finally I found solution how to transfer it on over-pan, but it was not easy. I do not recommend this experience to anybody. Sheeted batter straight on the over ban and there do all your job and you will not have any problems.

Inspiration for my today baking experiments founded here. Whereas on blog organization I decided to make it available in two languages. As you can see some of my posts are already in English. As soon as possible everything will be translated.
