"The smell of good bread baking, like the sound of lightly flowing water,
is indescribable in its evocation of innocence and delight..."

 Apple Pull-Apart Bread

1 cup milk
1/4 cup dark seedless raisins
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter
3 to 3 1/2 cups unsifted all-purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 package rapid-rising dry yeast
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 large Mutsu or Golden Delicious apples
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves

1. In 1-quart saucepan, heat milk until bubbles form around side of pan. Remove from heat; add raisins and 2 tablespoons butter. Set aside until mixture cools to 120 to 130 degrees F.
2. In large bowl, combine 3 cups flour, 1/4 cup sugar, the yeast and salt.
In small bowl lightly beat egg and vanilla. Very gradually beat in cooled milk. Add milk mixture to flour mixture. Beat with wooden spoon until a smooth dough forms.
3. Turn dough out onto lightly floured board; knead until smooth and shiny, adding as much of remaining 1/2 cup flour as necessary to make dough manageable.
4. Wash, dry and oil mixing bowl. Place dough in bowl, turning to bring oiled side up. Cover with clean cloth; let dough rise in warm place, away from drafts, until double in size - about 30 minutes.
5. Grease and flour 10-inch tube pan. Peel, core, and slice apples into eighths. Thinly slice each eighth crosswise. In large bowl, toss apples with lemon juice. In cup, combine remaining 1/4 cup sugar, the cinnamon, nutmeg
and cloves.
6. Turn dough out onto lightly floured board. Cut into 32 pieces. In small saucepan or cup in microwave oven, melt remaining 2 tablespoons butter. Add dough pieces, sugar mixture and melted butter to apples in large bowl. Toss to coat dough pieces well. Place in prepared pan.
7. Let bread rise uncovered, at room temperature, away from drafts until double in size - about 35 to 40 minutes.
8. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Bake bread 45 to 50 minutes or until golden brown and loaf sounds hollow when tapped on top. Cool in pan on wire rack 10 minutes. Remove from pan and cool on wire rack to room temperature before serving. To serve, pull apart several sections of bread
and apples.
