Today I decided to experiment. My son asked if I knew how to make an apple bread. While he loves my Banana Bread he has always loved apples more. So I set out to figure out an apple bread recipe. To be honest it was really easy. I just used the flour basics on the banana bread and then added/removed a few things. I tasted the batter and it was heavenly. I was hoping the bread would actually turn out as good as it tasted. It did!!!!!!! It was light, and moist and not dry one bit!
Here is the recipe (I actually measured out and wrote down what I did for once!) This is based off a regular recipe so even if you are not GF you will still enjoy this. To make dairy or egg free use the supplements. This yields 1 loaf.
- 1 1/2 cups of an all purpose flour ( I used Gluten Free Pantry from Glutino)
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 2 tsp cinnamon
- 1 egg beaten
- 1/3 cup melted butter
- 1 cup applesauce
Preheat oven to 350
In a large mixing bowl combine the dry ingredients. Add in the egg, butter and applesauce and mix well. The dough should be about a pudding consistency.
Pour dough into a greased bread pan (it will be about half full). Bake in the oven for 45 minutes to 1 hour (knife will come out clean). Move to a cooling rack and let cool completely before serving.
I plan on trying to make some sort of a cinnamon crumb topping to put on top of this. But it tasted great as is! I hope your family likes it as much as mine did. Our loaf is already almost gone!
