Yummm…Bread!

Week 2 at home has been going great! We carried last weeks theme over to this week, so we are still learning about pumpkins!

In fact we made three pumpkin breads, and an apple bread…. they were so amazing that I wanted to share the recipes!

Morgan Apple Bread  (Easy, and you probably have all the ingredients in your house already)

What you will need (makes two 9 x 5 pans):

  • 3 cups flour
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup veg oil
  • 1 cup apple sauce
  • 2 eggs – beaten
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 apples (cut into very very small pieces)
  • 1 bag walnuts (optional – you could also had raisins or other nuts)

What you do:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • Mix dry ingredients together
  • Add in wet ingredients
  • Consistency should be a little dry and thick enough that you could scoop it out with your hands
  • Coat 2 bread pans with cooking spray and fill with mix
  • Cook on 350 degrees for 60 minutes or till bread passes the knife test

 

Pumpkin Bread  – makes three large breads or 4 medium breads

What you will need (three to four 9 x 5 pans):

  • 5 cups flour
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 3 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1  1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1  1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1  1/2 tsp salt
  • 4 cups sugar
  • 1  1/2 cups apple sauce
  • 6 eggs – beaten
  • 3 cups (one large can) pumpkin puree
  • 1 bag walnuts or peacans (optional)
  • 1 bag craisins (optional)
  • 1 bag mini chocolate chips – simi sweet (optional)

Note: This makes three to four breads! I made three… one with nuts, one with craisins, and the last with chocolate chips. By far, the chocolate chip pumpkin bread was the best… but they were all amazing.)

What you do:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • Mix dry ingredients together
  • Add in wet ingredients
  • Consistency should be a like thick soup
  • Coat bread pans with cooking spray and fill with mix
  • Cook on 350 degrees for almost 2 hours or till bread passes the knife test

 Happy baking, and thanks for reading!
