Apples and honey are a traditional staple at Rosh Hashanah, but have you considered the apple bun as a new twist to the holiday?
2 cups all purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
½ cup margarine
2/3 cup water
4 McIntosh apples, peeled and shredded
¼ cup sugar
¼ teaspoonful vanilla extract
1 cup water
½ cup sugar
½ cup packed brown sugar
4 tablespoons margarine
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
For The Dough
Combine all purpose flour, baking powder, salt margarine and water in a large bowl. Mix well. Add additional flour gradually if dough is too moist and hard to work with.
To Make the Filling
Combine the shredded apples, sugar and vanilla extract in a small bowl and let sit.
To Assemble and Bake
Roll dough into 11 by 17-inch rectangle. Spread the apple mixture evenly over the dough. Roll the dough, from the long end, jelly roll style. Slice the roll into one inch slices. Place the apple buns close together into one 10 inch round glass baking dishes.
Prepare the syrup. Combine water, sugar, brown sugar, margarine and cinnamon in a small pot. Stir over low heat until all ingredients are melted. Pour syrup over apple buns.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit and bake for one hour. Serve the buns warm. The recipe should yield about 12 buns.
You could be really nice to your family and offer them a double whammy of cinnamon and apple buns. Now that would be a yummy treat.
If your short on time or your work schedule is just to hectic, its perfectly fine to go to a kosher bakery and buy the apple and cinnamon buns. What really matter is that you are all together as a family enjoying Rosh Hashanah dinner.
Unlike other kosher catering Toronto companies, Mitzuyan does not provide kosher cuisine for Rosh Hashanah. We prefer to allow our catering team to spend time with their family and have a well deserved rest.
