Apple Pie Bread is another delicious bread you can make in the breadmaker. While it may not taste exactly like apple pie, it does include diced apple, cinnamon, brown sugar, and apple juice concentrate in the ingredients making it a sure bet to be really close to apple pie flavors anyway! This quick and easy bread recipe has all the convenience of using a breadmaker, yet it has the extraordinary taste of a loaf that has been hand-kneaded. If you enjoy apple pie, it works really well in bread form, as this recipe can testify.
Most of you know how much I enjoy a good loaf of home-baked bread. When I served this bread for lunch to a houseful of company a couple of weeks ago, one of the gals said she was going to have to purchase a breadmaker because she loved all the delicious breads I make.
They were over for dinner when I made the Apple Butter Bread a couple of months ago as well. As I get more adept at adapting recipes with more wholesome ingredients (like sprouted whole wheat flours, honey instead of sugar, and less processed ingredients), more and more bread recipes (and other recipes) I try will be healthier and guilt-free!
For this particular recipe, I followed the directions except when it came to the vital wheat gluten. I made it first according to the directions and it didn’t raise enough to suit me. So the second loaf I included a full four teaspoons of vital wheat gluten. The second loaf raised superbly.
Both tasted well, but the first was a little heavier and denser (which is not really the way I like my bread), and the second loaf was lighter and fluffier (which is the way I like my bread!) This is another one of those recipes I found on Pinterest in the early days. I saved the recipe over two years ago but had yet to make it. I’m glad I did, because Apple Pie Bread is scrumptious.
If you’re looking for a marvelous bread for your breadmaker that simulates apple pie, then you need to give Apple Pie Bread a try sometime. It only takes about 10 minutes to have this recipe in the breadmaker and ready to go. And afterwards, you and your family (or company) can enjoy a fantastic home-baked loaf of bread to serve with any kind of meal.
Apple Pie Bread is a delicious tasting bread you can make in the breadmaker!
The texture of the bread is a lot better when you use a full four teaspoons of vital wheat gluten, rather than the 1 1/2 tsp. the original recipe indicated.
