This week, we tackled Bag End Apple Bread, found comfy-cozy in the pages of JRR Tolkein's classic Lord of the Rings Trilogy, as well as the Hobbit.
Bilbo's home, Bag End, is in the Shire- rather the midwest of Middle Earth. And, as the midwest edges toward fall, nothing represents us better than apples! (Except possibly pumpkins- but that's soon to come!) And so, this week, I'm pleased to present: Bag End Apple Bread!!
If you're familiar with banana bread, then this is a great recipe for you! It is pretty quick, and very simple.
chopped, skinned apples
flour ( I used half white half whole wheat)
I replaced the oil in a normal sweet bread recipe with applesaucs- both to fit the theme and make it a tad healthier!
Start by mixing your dry ingredients together (minus the sugar)
in another bowl, cream sugar, eggs and applesauce:
Add the vanilla, and then mix the wet and dry ingredients together.
Then add in the apple chunks!
Bake at about 350 for between 45 minutes and an hour.
DELICIOUS- and would be great for Teatime... or Elevenses..or even the fabled Second Breakfast.
As always- if you make one of my FFF ideas, please let me know, and if you have any suggestions, leave them in the comments!
