As I look back at my recipes in the bread section I want to laugh. You might recall me saying…
“I like classic banana bread, but if given the choice between that and some other breads out there, its my second choice.”
You’d think otherwise, since MOST of them ARE banana breads in some form. 😉 Truly though, I think it’s just the classic one that needs something.
So on that note, I’ve found yet another variation to banana bread!
This one I would not call quick bread in the sense of making it. It had lots of “parts” to it. But the results were SO good it didn’t last more then 5 min out of the oven. I am totally serious too! It was heavenly warm, and we never got to try it cold as it was to good.
For starters, the original recipe (from A Whisk and Spoon) called for granny smith apples. I never have those on hand, as I am not fond of them. So I simply used my gala apples. Tasted great! I recommend just using whatever apple you have on hand.
I cored, peeled, and chopped two gala apples.
Then prepared the pan for the apples.
I have to say, this made my brain tick. I think this would make for a seriously yummy apple pie filling! 🙂 I think I will try it someday. It smelled divine!
I forgot to get a picture of the dry ingredients, but I did get one of the beat sugar and butter. 😉
This is the part that makes me say this isn’t the quickest quick bread. There is a pattern to follow. While not a completely hard one, you still HAVE to use your brain. And at this point in my pregnancy, my brain doesn’t seem to be working so hot.
I put all the ingredients I needed, ready to add to the bowl to mix in a certain order. The original recipe called for Orange Juice. I didn’t have that, but I did have apple juice. Seemed to work out just fine.
I added the eggs one at a time, like the recipe suggested.
While I was working on this recipe I had Noah stirring some flour in a bowl of his own. He seemed to enjoy “helping” me in this way.
I added all the ingredients in the order suggested.
Into the pan to cook, and out of the oven came this bread that was SO good it barely made it out of the oven before it was devoured.
Note to self: Make TWO of these next time!
This is about what was left after 5 minutes or so. And even then, this was gone within the hour. It was truly good bread!
