Hello lovelies, a new recipe is waiting for you, this time for delicious: brioche with apple cinnamon filling. It’s time for a pumpkin break and there are apples and lots of cinnamon in exchange. I hope that’s ok with you. I’m pretty sure it is as the brioches turned out so yummy. Fluffy, not too sweet with this delicious apple cinnamon filling and absolutely free from eggs, butter and white flour.

I actually made them with spelt flour, maple sirup and margarine. I added apple sauce to the yeast dough, which functions as an egg replacement and makes the dough super soft. There are many ways to replace eggs in baked products. Next to apple sauce you can also use bananas, chia seeds, flax flour or soy flour. I have tried so many replacements by now, I can affirm I have found a solution for pretty much every baked product that won’t make you miss any eggs.

  • Add flour, salt, cinnamon and apple sauce and knead to a smooth dough
  • Place the dough in a bowl and let it rise for approx. 20 minutes
  • Then knead the dough again, put it back in the bowl, cover it up and let it rise again for 1 – 2 hours
  • In the meantime prepare the filling
  • Peel the apple and cut it in pieces
  • Put in a small pot and simmer at medium heat along with all other ingredients
  • for approx. 5-10 minutes, stir occasionally until the apple pieces are soft but doesn’t fall apart
  • After the dough has risen, preheat the oven to 220°C (428°F)
  • Grease a muffin pan (for 12 muffins)
  • Separate the dough into 12 pieces on a floured work surface
  • Knead into balls, separate them again and place half of them in the muffin pan
  • Put the filling in the middle (best to create a small hollow) and then put the rest of the dough on top
  • Coat the brioches with a mixture of soy cream and maple sirup
  • Decorate with pecans
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes until they are golden brown

I baked the apple brioches in a muffin pan which was super easy and provides the perfect serving size for a brunch, a snack or for a lunchbox. I gave the girls one each into their school lunchboxes, and they liked it a lot.

The brioches don’t contain any sugar and therefore aren’t too sweet, you can simply coat them with some jam. They are best served fresh (like all yeast pastries) but you can also deep freeze them and shortly heat them in the oven before serving them. Have you ever made brioches yourself? It’s truly easier than you think and even this healthier version is super delicious.

Love, Verena
