* ut oh apple bread …

Posted on October 20th, 2009 by melinda in good eatin'


I did something I have never done before!  First of all, I have a whole big ole bag of apples sitting on my kitchen cabinet.  I bought them at our town’s Apple Festival on Saturday.  They are grown locally and they are so yummy.  The only problem I have now is … 3 of us will never eat that many apples before they spoil.  Thus, I need to figure out what to do with them.  So this week on the blog, I am going to be posting several apple related idea’s.  Some you eat, some you don’t.  But what I’m not going to do is waste half a bag of perfectly good apples.  Now, back to what I did Sunday … I made up a recipe.  Yep, I did.  I walked right in to my kitchen, dug out a mixing bowl and went to town.  I did pretty cotton pickin’ good if I do say so myself.

Since my new concoction didn’t turn out tasting like cardboard, I thought I would share it with you.  Maybe you have a whole bag of apples you need to do something with too.

What I came up with was this … apple almond bread.  In truth, I was going for more of a pound cake type thing but it turned out to be more of a bread or muffin thing a ma bob.  But it taste good and that is all I need to know. 

here is what I did and what you will need:

self rising flour – 3 cups

sugar – 1 cup

brown sugar – 1/2 cup

cinnaman – t tsp.

vanilla flavoring – 1 tsp.

nuts (I used almonds but walnuts or pecans would work too) – 1 cup chopped

stick butter – 1 & 1/2 sticks softened

eggs – 4

milk – 1 cup

apples – 3 peeled & chopped fine

pour flour, sugar (both kinds) in to a mixing bowl.  add butter and mix well.  add eggs one at a time, alternating with the milk, mix between each egg, add vanilla & cinnaman.  mix all of that together until the batter is smooth.  with a spatula fold in your chopped nuts and apples.  grease and flour a loaf pan, bundt pan or muffin pan.  pour mixture into pan and bake at 350 (pre heat your oven) for approximately 50 minutes.  I checked mine at 40 minutes and covered the top with aluminum foil to keep it from getting too brown but allowing the middle to finish baking.  take out of the oven, cool for a few minutes but slice while it’s still warm … slather some butter over the top and eat your heart out!  try it and let me know what you think.  I’m going to get me another piece right now!

    jodie, cathy said it would be good with some cream cheese icing … she is not a butter lover like yours truly (she’s a weirdo, she can’t help it) but since cream cheese and cream cheese icing are the ultimate in my book of yumminess, next time i make it i’m gonna try some cream cheese icing with it. hope you and the kiddo’s enjoy it.

    That sounds yummy! Just so you know, Mr. Lindsay Deal said that if you refrigerate the apples they can last up to 6 months, so you don’t necessarily have to be in a huge rush…
