So I was very surprised how much I liked this Apple Lemon Bread. Tender. Light. Not too sweet. Lemony. It was good as is, and even better toasted with butter.
Here’s what you need:
¼ c butter
½ C sugar
2 eggs, beaten
2 C flour
1 t baking powder
1 t baking soda
1 t salt
2 tart apples, peeled and grated (about 2 cups worth)
Zest from 2 lemons
Here’s what you do:
Grease a loaf pan and preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream butter and sugar. Beat in eggs. Add the remaining ingredients, mixing well.
Bake for about 50 minutes. Cool on a wire rack before cutting.
|Early the next morning..... where's the coffee?|
I pulled this bread out of the oven late in the afternoon and then had to rush off to choir practice before I could get a photo of the finished loaf. My husband volunteered to finish up my shots. I hope you have fun seeing his creative props. Remember that old Sesame Street song... "One of these things is not like the other" ? I think these photos will will give you an glimpse into what my kitchen often looks like when I am preparing my blog photos..... no, I am not talking about the nice Yahtzee game in the background.
