I liked my Herbs and Garlic Butter Bread so much, that of course I had to make another version of it. Chocolate with nuts is always delicious, but this time I wanted it to have more of a summer feel to it. Therefore, a fruity filling with apple and nuts it is! Every time I make this I am surprised how fast and easy the dough comes together. Since I'm not a big "kneader", this recipe is perfect for me. A quick mix and just a few folds and dough is smooth and ready to rise. This sweet bread will be a hit at any picnic or breakfast! Served with applesauce or with jam - so yummy. As always, there are no limits to creativity. Add chocolate to the filling, add more sugar to the dough, the options are endless.
