Breadmaker Baking

i made some apple pie bread last night…very yummy!

here’s the recipe i used (from allrecipes.com–i LOVE that site!):

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 3 1/4 cups bread flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 3 tablespoons powdered buttermilk
  • 1 1/4 cups apple pie filling–i use Cracker Barrel’s fried apples
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup water

DIRECTIONS

  1. Place all ingredients into the pan of the bread machine in the order suggested by the manufacturer. Press Start.

well, i didn’t have powdered buttermilk, and we were out of regular milk…so i got a little “creative” and used a spoon or so of eagle brand milk.  i included this as part of my liquid measurement, so i therefore didn’t use a full 1/2 cup of water.  then i decided some oats would be yummy as an added extra, so i put in about 1/2 cup of those.

thankfully i decided to check on the bread before i went to sleep.  it was in the first rise cycle, and when i looked at what was supposed to be a nice, sticky ball of dough, i instead saw clumps of apple in a huge mound of dry ingredients.  oops!  forgot that adding the oats would require additional liquid!  nice.  so i got busy and added probably another cup of water, tried mixing everything with a spoon but then gave up and plunged my hands in to mix.  after it was sticky enough, i then sprinkled a little more cinnamon (Pampered Chef’s korintje cinnamon, of course!) on top for good measure.  :)

this morning i went to pull out the pan, and boy did it look good!  really chunky, delicious and gourmet-looking–why didn’t i take a picture?!  :(  i’ll just have to make some more so you can see what it looked like.  and then i’ll have you ALL over for some apple pie bread–with honey butter, of course.  :)  i make honey butter by softening a stick of butter and adding 1 cup of honey and 1 cup of powdered sugar–it’s out of this world!!  :)

  1. it sounds too good to even be possible.

  2. Wow – I think I need to make a trip to Arkadoo very soon! Sounds delicious. You’ve inspired me to use my breadmaker!

  3. thanks, you guys!!

    i forgot to mention that the next time i make it (and you are invited!!) :) i think i’ll chop the apples a little bit. they were basically in quarters (you know, CB’s fried apples and all)…and i would love to have more frequent bites with bits of apple! :)

  4. Sounds yummy! I wish I had a bread machine to make it in – but I’m not sure I would use it all that often. I love allrecipes.com – I think I use it at least 3 times a week. I might be in Arkadelphia tomorrow night – but I’m not sure yet (David Allen Wehr concert). I’ll call you in I’m there.
