Glazed Apple Lattice

In which I bake a tasty lattice...

This week without any idea of what to make I asked a friend for a suggestion and I got the word 'lattice'. So here is a traditional Polish recipe for a spicy apple lattice.


Sweet Dough

  • 600 g self raising flour
  • 45 g caster sugar
  • 1 tbsp quick action yeast
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 175 ml milk
  • 120 ml water
  • 75 g butter
  • 2 eggs

Apple Filling

  • 75 g butter
  • 75 g brown sugar
  • 2 tbsps self raising flour
  • 1 ¼ tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp nutmeg
  • ¼ tsp allspice
  • 500 g apples


  • 250 g icing sugar
  • 2 tsps orange extract
  • ¼ tsp vanilla extract
  • water to mix

*This recipe will make 2 loaves.


  • Mix 200 g flour, sugar, yeast and salt in a mixing bowl.
  • Heat the butter, milk and water in a pan until combined and warm to the touch.
  • Slowly add the heated milk to the flour mixture while mixing at a medium speed using an electric whisk.
  • Beat for 2 minutes.
  • Add eggs and 75 g flour.
  • Beat for 2 minutes on high speed.
  • Use a spoon to stir in the rest of the flour until you have a stiff dough.
  • Grease the top and cover with clingfilm.
  • Refrigerate for at least 2 hours (you can keep the dough for up to 3 days).
  • Knead the dough down.
  • Divide the dough into two and roll each into 12" x 9" rectangles.
  • Put the dough on a baking sheet and spread with butter.
  • Cut 1" strips ⅓ of the way in from each side of the dough.
  • Mix the brown sugar, flour, spices and thinly sliced apple in bowl.
  • Spread filling down the centre of the rectangle.
  • Fold the strips in at an angle on alternating sides.
  • Seal the ends.
  • Allow the bread to rise until doubled over about an hour.
  • Bake at 180°C until golden brown (30-40 minutes).

  • Mix icing ingredients together and drizzle over the loaves.
  • Enjoy!
