Recipes - Cinnful Dessert Blend

Apple Bread


4 cups apples, peeled, cored and cut up (4 to 5 apples)

4 large eggs, beaten

1 cup vegetable oil

2 tsp. vanilla extract

1 tsp. almond extract

2 tsp. Backyard Patch Cinnful Dessert Blend

3 cups all-purpose flour

2 cups white sugar


3/4 cup all-purpose flour

1/4 cup white sugar

2 tsp. Backyard Patch Cinnful Dessert Blend

6 Tbls.  butter, room temperature

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Lightly grease two 9 x 5" bread loaf pans.  Set aside.  Peel, core and slice apples  Cut into good size chunks (about 1").  In a large bowl, beat the eggs with an electric mixer until fluffy.  Add the oil and beat.  Add the vanilla and almond extracts, baking soda, salt and Backyard Patch Cinnful Dessert Blend.  Beat until well mixed.  Add the flour and sugar and blend on low until mixed.  Then blend on high until mixture is smooth.  The batter will be thick.  Fold in the apples and mix by hand until well coated.  Divide the mixture between the two pans.  To prepare the topping combine flour, sugar, and Backyard Patch Cinnful Dessert Blend, then cut in butter until well mixed and crumbly.  Sprinkle evenly over both loaves.  Bake for about 1 hour on center oven rack.  Loaf should feel fairly firm when touched in center.  Cool five minutes before removing from pan.
