Apple Bread

Shrug is catching on to the lingo as you can tell from the last line in this recipe. Just goes to show you. A great deal of recipes though not originally kosher can be made so, and once you get the hang of it, even a milk based Apple Bread as is described below can be also Parve!

Story & Description:

Another one of my experimental creations. I thought this bread tasted pretty good, but not quite as appley as I wanted. I substituted the apple cider drink mix for the other seasonings it originally called for. The result is an incredibly moist and yummy bread that is almost cake-like. Then I wondered what the bread would taste like if I used diced apples instead of raisins. Now I vary the breads by using any combination of the optional ingredients. Now matter which way you make it, it still tastes great.

Apple Bread - (makes two 8" x 4" loaves)
  1. 2 Tablespoon butter or margarine (softened)
  2. 1 cup packed brown sugar
  3. 1 egg
  4. ½ cup milk
  5. 1 cup applesauce
  6. 2 cup flour
  7. 1 ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  8. 1 ¼ teaspoon baking powder
  9. 1 teaspoon salt
  10. 2 teaspoon dry hot apple cider drink mix
  11. 1 cup peeled, diced apples (optional)
  12. 2/3 cup raisins (optional)
  13. ½ cup chopped walnuts (optional)
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Cream together butter and sugar.
  3. Beat in egg and milk until well-combined.
  4. Mix in applesauce.
  5. Sift together flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and cider mix.
  6. Slowly add dry ingredients to wet mixture until well combined.
  7. Gently stir in raisins, apples and/or nuts as desired.
  8. Fold into greased 8 x 4" loaf pans – half the batter in each pan.
  9. Bake for 35-40 minutes or until golden brown and toothpick inserted into center comes out clean.
  10. Remove from oven and allow to cool 10-15 minutes before removing bread from loaf pans.
  11. Slice and serve.
(To keep this dish dairy-free (parve?), water or apple juice may be substituted in place of the milk, changing the overall consistency of the bread very little.)

Sounds Yummy! And though it seems to take a lot of ingredients they are mostly household items and does not take a special trip to the Supermarket. The baking as usual takes planning and good timing though, as all baking does. So we give this a two - cause you do need to prepare and pay a bit of attention as things go.
