Apple Jam Braided Brioche… you guys where do i start on this one? Remember the sweet sweet sticky apple jam? I have just the perfect recipe to use that ๐Ÿ˜€ its a rich sweet yeasted brioche dough filled with sweet sticky apple jam . the braided sticky brioche is glazed with pumpkin pie spice and toasted crunchy walnuts on top ๐Ÿ˜‰ 

The braiding of the brioche is like how you would braid your hair. Even tho I do know how to braid hair, I kinda kept messing  the brioche braiding up until it looked like this. You can check out the kitchn’s page for some braiding techniques . You can also make apple jam braided brioche into apple jam “Cinnamon roll” styled rolls.  Apple jam loaf in a bread tin works too!
