Apple Raisin Cinnamon Ring

This recipe is another apple bread recipe. Cinnamon bread with apple and raisin filling is ordinary combination. But look at the shape!! What a lovely shape!!

It looks ring cake, but it is bread!!
The dough is sweet and rich, cinnamon taste like hot cross buns. It is perfect for breakfast or tea.

The shaping  instruction photo, I put them up side- down. When I made it, I did wrong way. I roll it up to down. But roll the dough, down to up is easier.

And don't put too much fillings. It makes difficult to shape. 
Apple preserve is the same as Apple custard roll's filling. You need to make it at first.

Apple preserve
 4 apples (peel and cut into dice)
 4 tablespoon of Sugar
1 tablespoon of Lemon juice
 40g raisin
In a small sauce pan, heat apple, raisin, sugar and lemon juice with low heat, and stir  constantly, until sugar is dissolved. Stir in apple and simmer until apples are transpired.

  1. This looks great! I love the look of this ring! And the filling is perfect for fall! :)

  2. This weekend I made this apple cinnamon ring - it was delicious. But my dough didn't rise properly - after 2.5 hours in a warm place it still hadn't grown much. I rolled it out and baked it anyway, and it tasted fine, the bread just wasn't very fluffy. Do you have any tips about how to make sure your dough rises properly?
