Tis the fall season! Therefore it is also apple season!
So here is one of the recipes we all love to have (or rather, they love when mama slaves to make this, so they can gobble it all up within minutes! LOL).
Cinnamon Apple Bread is a take off from this recipe with an added sweet twist.
If you like a little sweet with your spice, then this is the bread for you. Not really a bread, more like a big, fall apart, oh so yummy, muffin….but bigger, lol.
Here is what you need for this scrumptious treat:
This recipe makes 3 loaf pans or a really full 9×13 pan.
1 cup of softened butter (2 sticks – room temperature)
2 cups of white granulated sugar
2 cups buttermilk (or 2 cups of milk (I use Silk original almond milk) plus 2 tablespoons of lemon juice or vinegar mixed together)
4 cups all purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 1/2 – 2 cups of peeled, cored, chopped apples (any kind, I used Golden Delicious this time)
2/3 cups of white granulated sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 1/2 sticks of butter
1 cup of semi-packed light brown sugar
Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees and grease your pan(s) with Crisco
In a large mixing bowl using a stand mixer or hand mixer cream together the butter and sugar, then add the eggs until blended well. Add in your buttermilk (or milk mixture), flour and baking soda.
Slowly combine the dry and moistened mixture, from experience the flour will “floof” out and make a mess.
Add your apples and mix until combined.
Put a little less than half of the batter into your pan(s) then sprinkle almost all of your cinnamon/sugar mixture over the entire area in each pan(s). Put the rest of the batter in the pan, covering as much of the cinnamon/sugar mixture as possible.
Put the pan into the oven and bake at 350 degrees for 50-60 minutes until the top is browned or until toothpick tester comes out clean and dry.
As the bread is cooling, you can prepare your praline sauce. Take you butter and light brown sugar and put it in a pot on the stove. Heat your ingredients, stirring constantly, until completely combined, to a boil. Let boil for 1 minute then remove from heat.
Once you have made the praline sauce using a spoon or a small squeeze bottle, drizzle the sauce over the bread. It should cool rather quickly, if not, wait until it has hardened before attempting to cut into the bread.
I hope you enjoy this delicious fall recipe and if you amend, it, please let me know!
In His Grace.
