Mini Apple Breads
These great little breads are deliciously moist and cinnamon-ey. Plus, they mix up easily and keep well. The presentation is ADORABLE, if I do say so myself. My little daughters were thrilled with these, because they said they were straight out of a “My Little Pony” episode. Apple Valley? I don’t remember. I’ll ask them when they come home from school. Should be any minute now…..
They are perfect to hand out as quick breakfasts to your kids, to take to work, or for that bake sale you were roped into. Ha.
These Mini Apple Breads have been great as after-school snacks for my kids. I found these really super little papers at the exchange a few weeks ago. If I can find them in the exchange, in Okinawa, then I’m pretty sure you can find them where you are. Or you could order them from Amazon. Link.
Apple goes well with sour cream and brown sugar. Period. You can’t go wrong with these three. This recipe makes about fifteen mini breads.
In a medium bowl, mix 3 cups brown sugar (light or dark), with 1 1/2 cups sour cream and 1 1/2 cups applesauce.
In a large mixing bowl, combine 6 cups of flour, 2 teaspoons salt, 2 tablespoons baking powder, 1 teaspoon all spice, and 3 tablespoons cinnamon.
Pour the sour cream mixture into the flour mixture, and mix well.
Add six eggs and 1 1/3 cup oil. Mix until you have a smooth batter.
Pour the batter into the papers. I love these papers because they stand independently and they have non-stick interiors.
Slice up some apples thinly and put one slice on each lump of batter.
Sprinkle with cinnamon…. that’s fun.
Put the filed papers onto a baking sheet to bake. I was able to knock out the batch using three baking pans.
These smell SO AMAZING when baking. Your whole house will smell like cinnamon-ey sweetness and delight. Bake at 350 degrees, F, for 40 minutes or so.
Dust with powdered sugar when they’re done.
Sweet Apple Acres!
That’s it. That’s what my daughters say. Sweet Apple Acres is the orchard in My Little Pony where Apple Jack and Granny Smith live.
I should have known that. Ha. Actually, it’s my husband who reads the Little Pony books to the girls at night. They love that time with their dad so much. Marines do great things like that for their daughters. Ask any Marine.
Well, my kids are home now and are razing the kitchen like that pack of rabid hyenas with entitlement issues.
I’ll be back tomorrow with my Watercress Soup recipe. I found more Watercress today and I’m so excited to finally post that recipe. And the green – I can’t wait to see the vibrant green in the photographs I’ll take.
Have a good day, wherever you are.
