Hubby’s boss gave him a large brown paper bag of apples. I’ve slowly been working my way through them make all sorts of goodies for Hubby…and the childcare kiddos. The bag isn’t empty yet and I didn’t feel like freezing them so I got out the cookbooks and looked for something that was new and sounded good. I came across a recipe for Apple Quick Bread.
It tastes much better than it looks. Here’s a loaf that was cut into…
Here’s the recipe.
1/2 c margarine softened
1 cup sugar
1 tsp of baking soda
1/2 tsp of salt (I skipped salt)
2 T of buttermilk (I used regular milk)
2 cups flour
1 tsp of vanilla
2 cups finely chopped apples
Mis all together and pour into two small greased pans. (that direction had me a little confused on what they meant by small. I ended up using two half sized loaf pans.)
3 T margarine
3 T flour
3 T sugar
4 tsp of cinnamon
Spread that over the top of the batter. Bake at 350 until they test done. (mine was just over 40 minutes) This is a good recipe for apples that are getting soft.
The recipe came from a church cookbook. Part of me is a little disheartened. I love church cookbooks. I love my cookbooks from Amish country. I afraid that they are a sign of the past. There are so many recipes now days on the internet. I don’t think people will be looking for cookbooks. I admit to liking online recipes but so many use ingredients that I don’t have or are even not available in our rural area. I love church cookbooks. They have simple good old fashion food…kind of like this recipe.
