So I mentioned on facebook that I was making Apple Bread this week. It was delish! I got the recipe from the blog My Kitchen Adventures. Renee does an amazing job taking pictures of her yummy creations and well she make it very hard *not* to try this Apple Bread. This was so heavenly smelling in the oven. Lincoln loved it. You cannot tell you used grated apple (food processor is the best for this, FYI), it was very soft and moist. It was gone in one day. It was very hard not to eat just 1 slice. I dare you to try.
I made a few changes to her recipe to adjust for what I had in the house. But for the most part it was the same.
Servings - 12 Serving size- 1/12th Calories - 152 Fat- 5.2 Carbohydrate- 24 Protein- 3.5
2 C. bleached all purpose flour
1/2 C. white sugar
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 egg + 2 egg whites
1.5 C. grated fresh apple
1/2 C unsweetened applesauce
1 tsp. fresh, grated ginger root
1/4 C canola oil
3 TBS. 1% milk
1/3 C brown sugar
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 9"x5"x3" loaf pan with cooking spray.
In a large bowl, combine the flours, sugar, 1 tsp. cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Set aside. In another bowl, whisk together the egg and egg whites, applesauce, oil and milk. Add the grated apple and ginger and combine. Add the "wet" ingredients to the dry and mix until just combined. In a small bowl, combine the brown sugar with 1/2 tsp. cinnamon. Pour batter into prepared loaf pan and sprinkle with brown sugar/cinnamon mixture. Bake for 55 to 60 minutes, test at 50 though, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Cool on rack and slice into 12 pieces.
Thanks Renee for such a great recipe!!! And for proof that kids do like this, here's Lincoln itching to get to the bread!
