I am leaving this week for another 4 day outing with my birthday group. This time Bev Chicos daughter Allison has invited us to her lake cabin by Siren, Wisconsin, our last hurrah for the summer! I hope the fall colors will be out, so this weekend I am cooking. We always take some meals along. I discovered a new easy recipe on Facebook for apple bread. Pa Lloyd gave it his stamp of approval, so I am sharing the recipe with you and baking it for our outing.
Apple Pie Bread:
1 can apple pie filling, mashed
( I used a potato masher to mush it up)
1 yellow cake mix
1 cup self rising flour
4 eggs slightly beaten
1 medium apple peeled and diced
1 Tablespoon cinnamon
1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans ( optional)
Whisk together dry ingredients. Add in wet ingredients, fold in chopped fresh apple and nuts. Pour into 2 greased loaf pans. Sprinkle the top of batter with cinnamon/sugar. Bake at 325 degrees for 35-45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool.
I almost forgot. Last week 2 cups flour was omitted from the recipe for Morning Glory Muffins, the batter is very stiff!
I'm Kathy Lloyd. I grew up on a farm near Elmore, MN and have lived in Fairmont for over 44 years. I have always loved to cook, even when I was very young. I loved to stay with my Aunt Dorothy during my childhood. She was a great cook and used to give me freedom in the kitchen, teaching me along the way. She made recipes from our Norwegian heritage, along with pies, homemade doughnuts, yeast bread and cinnamon rolls.
