Try It Out Tuesdays: Apple Bread

Hello Hello Hello

Happy Belated Canada Day!

Yesterday was a pretty awesome day…the husband + the boys spent the day at the beach. It was just lovely! The water was still too cold for us to go swimming in – although I saw some kids who didn’t seem to mind the cold water – but the boys went in and had lots of fun just playing at the beach.

When we got home, we were all pretty exhausted. The husband and boys took an afternoon nap while I baked some delicious apple bread in the kitchen.

  2. In a medium bowl mix all the dry ingredients together – flours x2, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  3. In a large bowl mix all the wet ingredients together – egg whites, milk, yogurt, oil and vanilla extract.
  4. Pour the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients, slowly. Make sure to mix thoroughly.

apple bread I am just getting the hang of the oven at my new home. I find 350F is a little too hot for my little bread loaves. As you can see in the picture, the change in temperature though worked great! The outside was nice and golden while the inside was perfectly moist!

Please let me know how you like this recipe. Do keep in mind that I added no sugar to this recipe. My aunt has made a batch and she added 1/4 cup sugar to her recipe. She says it is just perfect…plus my 7-year old cousin really enjoyed it! I hope you guys like it too!

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day!!

Sugarless Banana & Orange Bread

Hello!

I did some baking a few days ago; I was determined to use products I had in my fridge. I had been wanting to make some type of bread since January…why? I don’t know. This cold weather makes me do crazy things! (Not really)

I found a recipe online for a Sugarless Banana-Orange Bread but then tweaked it a bit as I did not have all of the ingredients the recipe called for. And I did not want any sugar in my bread as I had just ran out of it. Had no honey either. I have been drinking A LOT of tea lately.

My version turned out GREAT! I was very pleased with it and will definitely be making it again!!!

Banana-Orange Bread

Ingredients:

1 ½ cups all-purpose flour

½ cup whole wheat flour

1 tsp. baking powder

2 ripe bananas, mashed

1 cup freshly squeezed orange juice

2 eggs

1 tsp. vanilla

1 cup raisins

½ tsp. cinnamon

½ tsp. nutmeg

  • In a large bowl sift dry ingredients (flours, cinnamon, and baking powder) and set aside.
  • Blend eggs, juice, vanilla and bananas.
  • Slowly stir egg mixture into flour mixture.
  • Add raisins and mix until blended.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes or until top is golden-brown and inserted toothpick comes out dry. (I did not use a regular 9×4 loaf pan as I could not find it…If you use a loaf pan then baking time might be increased by about 10 minutes.)

 *Baking times may differ*

If you try this recipe please let me know how it turns out! My family really enjoyed it…I hope you do too! Thanks for stopping by!
