You’ll Want To Eat Breakfast All Day Long
There are mornings when I fix myself a bowl of oatmeal and just stare at it, with no desire whatsoever to eat it. Don’t get me wrong – I actually like oatmeal a lot, but sometimes you get bored of a certain dish if you eat it every single day. Especially in the morning when you’ve barely had a chance to open your eyes… So, I was on a mission! I wanted to find a nice breakfast bread that I could have with a cup of coffee. Something that wouldn’t be too sugary and unhealthy, but still had wonderful flavor.
When I came across this apple butter bread recipe, I got curious. I mean, I wasn’t sure if the bread looked that appetizing but the ingredients seemed delicious. So after a moment of hesitation, I decided to give this one a try. It turned out so tasty I immediately made another one and froze it for later!
My husband isn’t too fond of sweet breads. He prefers cakes or muffins, so he wasn’t too excited when I told him about this new breakfast I was going to make.
You should have seen the look on his face when he had the first bite. He ate three slices and told me I could make this bread any time! You can use store bought or homemade apple butter for this. If you’re afraid it might turn out too sweet for your taste, just cut down the amount of brown sugar. And if it’s not sweet enough, after all, you can drizzle it with sugar glace or even serve it with your favorite cream cheese frosting! I’m pretty sure you won’t have any leftovers for the next day!
- 3⁄4 cup apple butter
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon
- 1⁄2 teaspoon clove
- 1⁄2 cup water
- 1⁄2 cup canola oil
- 1 1⁄4 cups Domino brown sugar
- 2 large Eggland’s eggs
- 1 3⁄4 cups Gold Medal flour, sifted
- 1 teaspoon Clabber Girl baking soda
- 3⁄4 teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease a 9″ loaf pan or spray it with cooking spray.
Mix together the apple butter, cinnamon and cloves. Add the water, whisking, then oil, brown sugar, then the eggs one at a time. Mix until smooth.
In a separate bowl, sift together flour, baking soda and salt. Combine with the apple butter mixture and mix until smooth. Don’t skip the sifting part or you may have white lumps in your dark bread!
Pour the batter into the loaf pan.
Bake for 65-70 minutes. Let stand for 10-15 minutes to cool slightly before removing from the pans. Let cool completely before slicing.
