Have you gone apple picking yet? We went over the weekend, and I promised my kids we would experiment with lots of apple recipes over the next few weeks.
The kids first suggested we bake Apple Bread. This recipe turned out amazing! The bread complimented my coffee this morning, my husband devoured a piece straight from the oven, and both of my kids ate breakfast without a fuss.
This recipe is simple to make and uses simple ingredients. My kids can pretty much do everything themselves now (they are growing up too fast!), except I chopped the apple. They cracked the eggs, mixed the batter, layered the apples and sprinkled on the cinnamon sugar. Happy Fall everyone!
Cinnamon Apple Bread
1 large apple- diced (If you feel ambitious, you can peel off the skin.)
8 tbsp butter/1 stick
2/3 cup white sugar
2 tsp vanilla
1 ¼ cup white flour
1 tsp baking powder
½ cup nonfat milk
½ cup brown sugar
1 tbsp cinnamon
1.) Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2.) Spray loaf pan with baking spray.
3.) In a small bowl, combine brown sugar and cinnamon. Set aside.
4.) In a mixing bowl, blend butter, sugar, vanilla and eggs. Mix until smooth. Slowly add in flour, baking powder and milk. Mix.
5.) Pour half the batter into the loaf pan. Evenly layer diced apple into batter and sprinkle on brown sugar and cinnamon mixture until completely covering apple layer. Pour remaining batter over apples.
6.) For the topping, evenly layer apples over the top of the batter. Sprinkle on cinnamon sugar mixture.
7.) Bake 50-52 minutes or until bread is baked through.
