Preparation Time:
Number of Servings: 1

1 1/2 To 1 3/4 cups unsifted
1 Rapid-rising dry yeast
1/2 Teaspoon(s) Salt
2/3 Cup(s) Very warm water, 120 degrees
130 Degrees F), Degrees F
1/2 Cup(s) Olive oil
1 Tablespoon(s) Honey
1 Tablespoon(s) Butter
1 Golden delicious or other
Sweet firm apple, peeled
And cut into 1/4-inch thick
1/4 Teaspoon(s) Coarse, kosher salt
Sweet apples and salty bread provide an intriguing contrast in taste.
To ensure that the hearth bread remains light and crisp, keep the
dough soft: Don't work in too much flour and knead it gently. Makes 1
loaf (6 servings) In large bowl of heavy-duty electric mixer, combine
1 1/2 cups flour, the yeast, and salt. Slowly beat in water, 1/4 cup
olive oil, and the honey; vigorously beat mixture 10 minutes. Cover
bowl with clean cloth and let dough rise in warm place, away from
drafts, 40 minutes. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, melt butter. Add
apple slices and saute' until very lightly browned; set aside. After
dough has risen 40 minutes, turn out onto floured surface. Gently
knead in as much of remaining 1/4 cup flour as necessary to form a
very soft dough - about 1 minute. Gently work apple slices into the
dough. Lightly oil large baking sheet. With floured fingers, shape
dough into a 9 inch round on oiled sheet. Cover with clean cloth and
let rise in warm place, away from drafts, until double in size - about
30 minutes. Heat oven to 400 degrees F. With pastry brush, coat top of
dough round with 2 tablespoons olive oil; sprinkle with coarse salt,
if desired. Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until hearth bread is browned.
Drizzle hearth bread with remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil and serve
warm. Nutritional information per serving - protein: 4 grams; fat: 20
