We made this delicious apple bread a few weeks ago and I thought I’d share the recipe today, a couple days before Thanksgiving, if you’re looking for something to make for breakfast before your turkey feast. It has all the flavors of fall and isn’t super sweet, which I like in a breakfast bread. This recipe makes 2 loaves, so we halved it.
2 C sugar
½ C oil (we used mostly apple sauce, with a Tbs or so of oil)
2 large eggs
2 Tsp vanilla
1 C chopped pecans or walnuts, we omitted
1 C raisins, Craisins, or chopped dates, we omitted
3 C flour
1 Tbs baking powder
½ Tsp baking soda
1 Tsp salt
1 Tbs cinnamon
½ Tsp nutmeg
I also thought I’d share a beverage option for your Thanksgiving meal tomorrow. At the wine tasting we went to recently we tried mead. We were told that mead is a “honey wine” that is made by fermenting honey and water. As you can expect, it’s super sweet. They make different flavors and the brand we tried, brewed up in NH, has a flavor called Kurt’s Apple Pie.
It was yummy, so we bought a bottle and will serve it over ice on Thanksgiving. It pairs well with blue and cheddar cheeses, prosciutto, and dates. So maybe we’ll have it with appetizers…
