Daring Bakers: Danish Braid

I am thrilled about this month's challenge. What an aromatic dough! I just loved the freshness of the orange zest and the cardamom. Mmm... I was not sure about the apple filling because I am not a big fan of fruit fillings but I decided to prepare it. It was very good and harmonized great with the rest. I enjoyed laminating the dough a lot more than when I did the croissants. It was easier to roll it out and the texture of the dough was lighter despite the big amount of the butter. I think it tastes best lukewarm with a cold cup of milk.





Thanks for this great challenge to Kelly from Sass & Veracity and Ben from What’s Cookin’?. Check out the fellow Daring Bakers here. This month's double DB is also completed, a yummy chocolate cake without flour, that I am going to post later.
