Here is an easy to make Apple Bread. It is a sweet and tasty recipe, great especially when you're looking to use up all of the apples you picked during the fall. Yes it is a perfect autumn breakfast, but once you tasted it, you’ll make it again and again no matter the season is!
- First, measure the ingredients properly; having correct measurements is one of the secrets of successful baking. A lot of times, baking problems comes from improper measurement of flour. I advise you to measure flour by using the “spoon-and sweep” method. It is becoming a common low-fat technique that many food magazines such as Cooking Light uses it, give it a try.
- To measure the flour properly, place your dry measuring cup on a plate or piece of waxed paper (to catch the excess flour). Stir the flour in the bag or container using a large spoon, and lightly spoon it into the cup until it overflows. Remember; do not pack the flour in the cup. Using a knife (or even you finger), remove the excess flour so it is level with the top of the cup.
- Prepare your oven, in any kind of baking; a properly preheated oven is a key to success. Preheat your oven until it reaches to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Sometimes, some ovens have unreliable thermostat dial, so always double check the temperature using a free-standing oven thermometer to be sure.
- Next, use an 8x4 inch nonstick pan. To limit sticking, grease it by spraying some canola or vegetable oil spray.
- Put the butter and sugar in a bowl and mix them using an electric hand mixer, or by hand using a wire whisk. Mix them until the mixture is smooth and creamy.
Tip: Before mixing your butter and sugar, make sure that the butter is in a room temperature so it will properly cream. Butter becomes oily when it is melted, too warm or soft, using this, your bread doesn’t rise as high and has a dense, heavier texture. However, if the Butter is too cold, it doesn’t cream; you won’t be able to mix it in well with the sugar and air doesn’t incorporate with the butter.
- Beat in the eggs using an electric hand mixer or hand whisk until they are thick and lemon colored. For eggs to properly act as emulsifier, it is also important that the eggs you use are at room temperature. If the eggs you use are cold, the butter and sugar you just previously mixed will tend to break apart or curdle.
- Take a separate bowl, put in the flour with the baking soda, salt, cinnamon and cloves use a sifter or a fine mesh sieve to shift them together. Add in the butter mixture and mix until moistened.
- Peel and core the apples, chop them and add them in. Then, Transfer to the prepared loaf pan.
- Now you can put the pan on our preheated oven and bake for an hour. To avoid over baking the bread, the most common method of testing for doneness is to insert a toothpick into the center. If the toothpick comes out clean, your bread is done!
- Let the bread cool while in the pan for about 15 minutes, then, transfer it to a wire rack to cool completely. Now you can enjoy your sweet apple bread!
