Apple Braided Chocolate Brioche

I cheated a little on this one: not that I can’t do my own brioche bread but I was more interested in the braiding side of the recipe and needed apples to be used so I went for a brioche flour mix for bread maker, and just added some chocolate chips to it. Whilst that was going in the bread maker, I chopped up 3 apples and mixed a little lemon juice and some cinnamon sugar… Now for the real fun, in photos!

Roll it into an oblong shape about 30cm/ 12" long and fill with apples. Do this 4 times

To start the braiding, align 2 vertically and 2 horizontally as shown

Starting with the 2 at the bottom, left goes over right and tuck in
