I love all things fall! One of my favorites though is the smell of yummy quick breads baking in our oven! Ahhh, its a little piece of heaven. The kids and I created this recipe the other day and I couldn’t resist sharing it with all of you!
Spiced Cran-apple, Oatmeal Bread Ingredients
2 2/3 cups flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
2 cups granulated sugar
1 cup vegetable oil
4 eggs, beaten
2 teaspoons vanilla
3 cups coarsely chopped apples
1/2 cup craisins
1/2 cup quick oats
2 teaspoons sugar mixed with 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
In a bowl, combine flour, baking soda, salt, and spices. In a mixing bowl, combine sugar and oil. Beat in eggs and vanilla, the gradually add the dry ingredients and mix until well blended. Lastly, fold in chopped apples, craisins, and oatmeal. Grease and lightly flour 2 9×5-inch loaf pans. Pour batter into pans, smoothing the top with a spatula or spoon. Bake for 15 minutes at 325°. Pull out rack and sprinkle loaves with the cinnamon sugar mixture. Continue baking for 30 to 40 minutes, or until a wooden pick or cake tester inserted in center comes out clean.
Cool for 10-15 minutes; turn out onto a rack. Slice and serve or freeze.
We enjoyed this with our dinner but it is also extra delicious with that morning cup of coffee~ ENJOY!
