Spiced bread with goji berries

My mother in law always bakes lovely honey bread based on a traditional family recipe. Unfortunately there is a lot of sugar and white flour in it what is the reason that I have created my own version. With goji berries, syrup of agave and spelt flour. As there was no special reason to bake it, I ate it up all myself ;-)

For 2 small breads or a 7inch (18cm) spring form.

For the apple-filling:
11 oz. sweet-sour apples (320 g)
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 fl. oz. syrup of agave (60 g)
1 tablespoon rum
1 oz. goji berries, dryed (20 g)
1-2 oz. Cranberries, dryed (40 g)
3-4 oz. hazelnuts (100 g)
1 fl. oz. candied orange peel (20 g)

Wash and grate the apples down to the core.  Sprinkle with lemon juice and mix it. Add syrup of agave, hazelnuts, rum, berries and candied orange peel. Mix it again and let it drawn for 3-4 hours.

For the dough:
8-9 oz. spelt flour (150 g)
1 tablespoon cocoa
1,5 teaspoons baking powder, natron
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, grinded
1 point of a knife of clove, grinded
1 pinch of salt

After the drawing-time add spelt, cocoa, baking powder, cinnamon, clove and salt to the apples. Knead it to a smooth dough.

Grease two smaller spring forms with some margarine, fill in the dough and bake the breads at 350°F (180°C) for 35-45 minutes. Let chill in the forms then carefully remove them.

The small apple breads are a really nice present for an afternoon tea or the pre-Christmas period.
