Autumn Apple Quick Bread

Found this on bakeitpretty.com and had to try it. mmm sounds delish! This is a pretty plain recipe, you could easily go crazy adding nuts, more spices, raisins, sugar glazes, etc.

Method

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease your loaf pans or use disposable liners.

Sift together flour, baking powder, salt and spices. Set aside.

In a separate bowl (or mixer) cream together butter and sugar until fluffy. Then add eggs one at a time and mix until super-fluffy.

Stir in apple cider until well combined. The mix will loose all fluffiness and look lumpy – this is normal.

Add the flour/spice mixture into the butter mixture and stir gently until barely combined. Don’t over-mix.

Gently fold in chopped apples. Don’t over-mix. Are you over-mixing? Stop that. Embrace the lumpiness.

Spread batter evenly into prepared pans, filling no more than 2/3 full.

Bake until barely golden and just done. Approximate baking times for various pans:
50-60 minutes for a large loaf pan
20-30 minutes for medium loaf pans
15-20 minutes for muffin/cupcake pans

Ingredients

Unbleached All Purpose Flour 1 ¾ Cups
Packed Brown Sugar ½ Cup
Baking Powder 2 Teaspoons
Salt ½ Teaspoon
Cinnamon 1 Teaspoon
Ground Ginger ½ Teaspoon
Ground Nutmeg ¼ Teaspoon
Softened Butter 6 Tablespoons
