Apple Cinnamon Bread

  • 3 ¾ cups flour
  • ½ Tbsp. salt
  • 2 ¼ cups sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. baking powder
  • ½ cup butter, cold and cut into pieces
  • 2 eggs
  • 4 small apples, peeled, cored and chopped
  • 2 small (4 ounce) snack cups of applesauce
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • Cinnamon sugar

Prepare two to four glass loaf pans by spraying with cooking spray and coating with cinnamon sugar.

Preheat oven to 350*.

In a large bowl add: flour, salt, sugar and baking powder.

Mix together well.

Add 1 cup of mix and butter into food processor and process until blended well. If you do not have a food processor, you can do this in a large bowl with a pastry cutter.

Add butter mixture back into large bowl with remaining dry mix and mix together well using a wooden spoon or whisk.

Add eggs, apples, applesauce, milk and cinnamon to the mix and mix until well combined. If it is too thick, you can always add a dab more milk.

Pour mixture evenly into pans and sprinkle with more cinnamon sugar.

Bake for 50 minutes.
