Glazed Apple Lattice Coffee Cake
A tempting Polish braided sweet bread filled with a spicy apple filling and drizzled with icing. This delectable and fragrant coffee cake does take a bit of time to prepare, but is actually quite easy to make, and well worth the effort. Once you've made it, your family will ask for it again and again...."I absolutely loved this recipe and so did my friends and family I shared it with. I was shocked that the recipe was successful. It was a hit.
I used cream cheese for the filling and I will try the apple filling the very next time I make this recipe. I added a little orange zest to the sweet dough and the icing sugar. I will be making this again, and again, and again........
Keep the awesome recipes coming sqrishka and thanks." - baker37

Glazed Apple Lattice Coffee Cake Preparation
In a large bowl, combine 1 1/2 cups flour, sugar, yeast and salt. Melt butter in a sauce pan, add milk and water, and heat until just warm (105-115 degrees F). Gradually add milk mixture to dry ingredients; beat 2 minutes at medium speed, scraping bowl occasionally. Add eggs and 1/2 cup flour; beat 2 minutes at high speed. With spoon, stir in remaining flour to form a stiff batter; grease top. Cover tightly with plastic wrap; rerfigerate 2 hours or up to 3 days.
Remove dough from the refrigerator. Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide in half. Roll each half into 9- by 12-inch rectangle. Place each on a greased baking sheet. Spread with butter.
Combine the brown sugar, flour, and spices in a large bowl. Add apples and toss to coat. Spread filling down center third of each rectangle.
On each long side, cut 1-inch wide strips about 3 inches into center. Starting at one end, fold alternating strips at an angle across filling; seal ends.(* see photo) Cover and let rise until nearly doubled, about 45 to 60 minutes.
