GLAZED APPLE CINNAMON BREAD

GLAZED APPLE CINNAMON BREAD: Butter With A Side of Bread


I’m a big fan of serving some type of bread with dinner.{I bet you couldn’t guess that with the name of this blog!} There’s something so comforting about the smell of bread baking in the oven! This is a fantastic sweet bread that pairs well with many soups and stews. Most recently, I served it alongside Easy Vegetable Chowder. If you don’t have an apple, a pear would work well too. The sour cream gives the baked bread a moist and delicate consistency- it’s so good! Serve leftovers with breakfast the next morning. {If there are any leftovers, that is!}

Glazed Apple Cinnamon Bread

  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/3 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 medium sized apple, peeled and diced

Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Grease a loaf pan and set aside.

In a large bowl or mixer, cream butter, sugar, eggs and sour cream. Add in spices and flour, mixing just until incorporated. Fold in walnuts and apples. Pour into prepared bread pan.

Bake for 1 hour 30 minutes, testing with a toothpick to make sure center is completely cooked. {I know this is a long time for bread to bake, but I’ve been testing out baking sweet breads at a lower temp for longer times and it turns out better! It rises higher- which makes the bread taste fluffier. Plus it warms the house up!}

Vanilla Glaze:  While bread is baking mix 1/2 cup powdered sugar with 1 TBSP melted butter and 1/4 tsp vanilla. Whisk in milk, 1 TBSP at a time until it’s smooth and about the consistency of heavy cream.

Once bread is baked, remove from oven and let cool on a cooling rack for about 20 minutes. Remove from pan and drizzle glaze over the top. Let cool and slice to serve.

Enjoy!

I like to dice the apples small- smaller than a penny!

The uncooked bread batter is thick.
