Apple Butter Bread

Fall is creeping upon us.  Although it’s not coming fast enough for me. It is still 90 degrees and miserably hot!

I wanted to make something with what is remaining of my homemade apple butter. You know, because I’m planning on making more come apple season.

So I found an Apple Butter Bread recipe to try. It was a hit! Actually, it made me wish for Fall all the more. It’s full of Fall flavors and so comforting with a cup of coffee. Or however, you would eat it.

Next, I’m baking my Pumpkin Bread. Don’t tell, but I also bake it all year. Yes, I know I have a problem with all things Fall, pumpkin and Christmas.

Who doesn’t love apple butter? Ok, so maybe one person out there doesn’t but in my house we love it! So why not incorporate it into a bread. Or cake.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare a 9 X 5 loaf pan with baking spray.

In a large bowl cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs and half of the buttermilk. Beat until smooth.

In another bowl whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg.

Add half of the flour mixture to the wet ingredients in the bowl. Beat, and then add the rest of the buttermilk. Beat again, and then add the rest of the flour mixture. Beat until just combined.

Stir in the apple butter until the batter is an even color.

    Excellent! I did reduce the sugar by 50% and made half a recipe of the glaze, using milk and 1 T. orange. My spouse said, β€œThis is one to make again.” Thank you for sharing.
