APPLE PIE BREAD

Apple Pie Bread TSLC - CopyThis 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.

Batter:

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 eggs

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.

Swirl:

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.

CRANBERRY NUT BREAD

Cranberry Nut Bread - TSLCThis Cranberry Nut Bread made with fresh cranberries is one of my favorite Christmas breads.  I love this bread with coffee during the holidays or just anytime.  It can be frozen without the topping and keeps well for several days in the refrigerator with the topping.  Just reheat in the microwave for breakfast or anytime you want a treat. The fresh cranberries really make this bread.

BREAD:

2 cups all-purpose flour

3/4 cup white granulated sugar

1/4 cup brown sugar

1 teaspoon orange zest

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 cup butter or 1 stick or 8 tablespoons, melted

1/4 cup sour cream

3/4 cup buttermilk

1/2 cup orange juice

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 eggs

1 cup chopped fresh cranberries

1 cup nuts, chopped (walnuts or pecans)

In a large bowl whisk together the flour, sugars, orange zest, baking powder, salt and baking soda.  Add the melted butter, sour cream, buttermilk, orange juice, vanilla extract and eggs mixing well with a spoon. Fold in the cranberries and nuts.  Spray two 8 x 5 loaf pans with cooking spray or one 9 x 5 and bake in preheated 350 degree oven 40 to 45 minutes. (I like to make two smaller loaves because I give one of them away or you can make the one larger loaf)

TOPPING:

3/4 cup powdered sugar

3 tablespoons milk

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract (Optional)

Whisk together and drizzle over bread. Can add more sugar or more milk to get the consistency you like.

Your friends and family will love this bread.  Enjoy!
