#fallrecipe Loaded Applebread


[This was written last fall...i just sort of forgot about it... ¯\_(ツ)_/¯  Looks like time might be repeating itself though]
Recipe loosely based off of here
Every weekend is a baking weekend for me. During the week it is work, drive home, work, eat, fast, and (maybe)sleep. Maybe some relaxing activities that usually involve me sitting down and playing a game or watching Bones with the hubby. The last few weekend I have made something apple oriented. It is fall, it is October, there are apples everywhere.
The weekend that hurricane Patricia hit mexico from the pacific we still had apples hanging out in our kitchen, gloomy weather, and we were staying home. I got up a little "later" than usual which was 5:15. My coughing and stuffed nose woke me up really, I will spare the gross details however. You're welcome.

After being fully awake and drinking some tea I started on some apple bread. Mainly for the baking but also for the aroma! Apples baking just smells warm. This was a quick recipe and I did adapt to be lower fat, more apple-y and spicier. Not heat, actual spices.

1 full cinnamon stick (no idea what it is in tsp or TBSP)
1 tsp allspice
1 TBSP sugar
Wet mixture
1 egg
1 container applesauce (4 oz)
1 tsp vanilla
2 TBSP almond milk
2 TBSP granulated sugar
2 TBSP sour cream-lite
Dry mixture
1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 spice mixture
4-5 small granny smith apples cored and diced
1/2 a lemon, juice
1/2 the spice mixture
1 TBSP sugar in the raw
2 TBSP sugar in the raw
... So many ingredients...
(adjust any as needed. This recipe is so simple, experiment away!)

Mixing bowls
Measuring instruments
Cake pan
Parchment paper

Makes 12 servings. 

Now to the fun part, baking!
This recipe is best baked at 5am. I am not joking.
Pre-heat oven to 350
Mix the dry ingredients and wet ingredients separately before mixing together. Mix until just smooth. Let sit while chopping the apples
I chose to just cube up the apples because I wanted chunks when biting into the bread. Shredded apple might be pretty cool too!

Line your cake pan with parchment paper. 
Sprinkle down 1 tablespoon of raw sugar
Take 1/4 of the chopped up (or whatever) apples and lay over the sugar evenly
Sprinkle remaining raw sugar on the apple layer

Take 3/4 of your remaining apples, toss in spice mixture until fully coated
Add into batter and gently mix
Pour onto apple and sugar layers in the cake pan

Pour onto apple and sugar layers in the cake pan
Top with extra spiced apples
Bake for 40 minutes and test half way through.
