Apple Delectables.....

Wednesday, October 28, 2009

We have a lot of apples on hand after buying 4o lbs at our local orchard! Being the baker of the family, I decided to bake two delicious treats this week....
Apple Fritters

Soft slices of apple are found in this sweet fluffy pastry.....topped with a bit of cinnamon-sugar, they are so good for breakfast or a snack!

Apple Fritters

1 C. flour

1 1/2 tsp. baking powder

1/2 tsp. salt

2 T. sugar

1 egg

1/2 C. plus 1 T. milk

1 1/2 C. apples, peeled and diced or sliced

Mix dry ingredients. In a seperate bowl, combine egg and milk; add to dry mixture. Stir just until batter is smooth; fold in apples. Drop by spoonfuls on a hot skillet with oil. Fry until well browned on both sides. Immediately drain on paper towels and sprinkle with either powdered sugar or cinnamon-sugar. Serve warm.

Apple Bread

I added a delicate streusel topping to this yummy autumn bread. Best warm out of the oven (of course!!).
Autumn Apple Bread
1 C. oil
3 eggs
1 C. white sugar
1/2 C. brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
3 C. apples, peeled and finely diced
3 C. flour
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1 C. chopped nuts (optional)
Combine oil, eggs, sugar, and vanilla. In a seperate bowl, mix flour, cinnamon, soda, and salt. Add dry ingredients to oil mixture gradually. Add apples and nuts. Bake in 2 very well greased loaf pans at 300* for 1 1/2 hours, or until bread is nicely browned. Sprinkle with sugar, if desired.
Streusel Topping:
Brown sugar
White sugar
Oil or melted butter
Add equal parts of sugars and cinnamon; mix in a bit of oil until sugars are slightly wet. Sprinkle over top of bread before baking.
Enjoy these delicious recipes...and have a lovely day!
And as for my Day #7 Challenge....don't worry, I haven't forgotten about it! However, my "grand finale hairstyle" did not turn out as expected, so I am a bit behind. Hopefully I will post tomorrow and finish up the last day of this fun challenge!!
