This Apple Pie Bread recipe is one you will make over and over again. It is a great way to use up apples and goes good with coffee or as a snack with milk. This bread makes a great gift. My weakness when it comes to food is bread of any kind and I am always making bread.
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup white granulated sugar
1/2 cup butter or 8 tablespoons or 1 stick, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/3 cup sour cream
1/2 cup buttermilk
2 cups shredded, peeled apples (I used red delicious)
Whisk together the flour, salt and baking soda in a large bowl. Add white sugar, melted butter, vanilla extract, sour cream, buttermilk and eggs. Mix well with a spoon. Fold in shredded apples. Spray a 9 x 5 bread pan with cooking spray and add the batter.
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup chopped nuts (pecans or walnuts)
3/4 cup raisins
Mix together with a spoon and spread over batter as in photo below. Take a knife and swirl into batter.
Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 65 to 70 minutes testing to make sure bread is done in center. Let cool 10 to 15 minutes and remove from pan.
Topping for Cooked Apple Bread:
3/4 cup powdered sugar
3 tablespoons milk, more or less
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Mix together with spoon and drizzle over bread once bread has cooled.
Makes 1 loaf. Enjoy!
Note: You can freeze this bread or reheat. It keeps well for several days in a cool, dry place. You can also refrigerate. If you want to make it special, soak your raisins in about 1/4 cup bourbon before adding to the bread.
