Bread Baking Babes: Holiday Apple Kuchen (December 2012)

Apple Cranberry Kuchen

December 2012

This month's BBB recipe was adapted from a recipe in "Better Homes & Gardens Holiday Baking 2009 Magazine". The garnish is supposed to be something along the lines of sweetened creme fraiche. I used plain yoghurt instead to balance the sweetness of the crumb topping.

While we were waiting for Kuchen to rise, we hopped on our bikes to take a look at the neighbourhood Christmas lights. We LOVED this house! How brilliant. From these less than adequate photos, I hope you can get an idea just how brilliant it was. We especially love the large lantern lights that look just like giant vintage Christmas lights.

We learned about this wonderful display of lights from our friend, Tom. He used his tripod to get this shot of the giant vintage Christmas lights.

When we got home, it was time to bake! Here's what appeared a short time later. The aroma was unbelievably wonderful.

We were very glad we put an empty cookie tray on the shelf below the Kuchen. The fruit wants to overflow!
