Cinnamon-Apple Bread

Ingredients

3 Apples peeled and chopped
2 cups flour
3/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon Cinnamon
Dash of Nutmeg and Ground Cloves (optional)
1/2 cup sour cream
1 teaspoon vanilla
6 tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon

Preparation

1
Preheat oven to 350 Degrees F.
2
Apples: Peel them, halve them, quarter them then core them.
3
Then take each quarter and slice down the middle then cut across for chunks.
4
Add to a bowl and squeeze some lemon juice over them so they don't get brown.
5
Mix the wet ingredients in one bowl.
6
Then mix the dry ingredients in another bowl.
7
Drain the apples and pat them dry.
8
Then toss them in the dry ingredients and coat. This will ensure that the chunks don't fall to the bottom of the batter.
9
Mix wet ingredients into the dry until fully incorporated.
10
Add batter to a greased loaf pan.
11
In a small bowl, mix the brown sugar and cinnamon.
12
Sprinkle over the top of the cake batter.
13
Cook in the oven for 1 hour and 10 minutes.

About

This is NOT-apple crisp. It is the anti-apple crisp. I was going to make apple crisp then I decided NOT to make it.

I was walking through the Somerville Farmer's Market on Wednesday and saw some beautiful packaged loaves of Cinnamon-Apple Bread. Why didn't I buy one? Phsaw! That's boring. I like the challenge of making it myself.

I did some research and tried to find a good recipe for this bread but to no avail. So being my resourceful self, I took Emeril Lagasse's recipe for banana bread from the Food Network website and altered it to make Cinnamon-Apple Bread. The bread at the farmer's market had a beautiful cinnamon sugar toping so I made sure to add that as well. I'm impressed with the results.
