Apple Honey Kuchen Recipe

2 kuchens

 

Ingredients:

1 package active dry yeast

3/4 cup warm fat-free milk (110-115 degrees)

6 tablespoons granulated sugar, divided

4 tablespoons margarine or butter, divided

1 egg

2-3 cups all-purpose flour

3/4 teaspoon salt

1 pound baking apples, peeled, sliced

1/2 cup raisins

1/4 cup packed light brown sugar

2 tablespoons grated orange zest

1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg

2-4 teaspoons honey

Fat-Free milk

Method:

Mix yeast, milk, and 2 tablespoons granulated sugar in large bowl, let stand 5 minutes. Add 2 tablespoons margarine, egg. 2 cups flour, and salt, mixing until blended. Mix in enough remaining 1 cup flour to make smooth dough.

 

Knead dough on floured surface until smooth and elastic, about 5 minutes. Place in greased bowl, let rise, covered, in warm place until double in size, 1 to 1 1/2 hours. Punch dough down.

 

Heat remaining 2 tablespoons margarine in large skillet until melted, add apples and raisins and cook over medium heat until apples are tender, 5 to 8 minutes. Remove from heat. Sprinkle combined brown sugar, orange zest, cinnamon, and nutmeg over apple mixture and toss.

 

Divide dough into halves. Roll each on floured surface into a 12 inch round. Arrange apple mixture on half of each round, drizzle each with 1 to 2 tablespoons honey. Brush edges of dough with milk, fold dough over filling and press edges with tines of fork to seal. Transfer to greased cookie sheets, sprinkle with remaining 4 tablespoons granulated sugar. Let rise, covered, until impression of finger remains in dough when touched, about 1 hour. Reseal edges, if necessary. Bake at 375 degrees until golden, about 20 minutes. Transfer to wire racks and cool, serve warm.
