Apple Bread With Sugar & Cinnamon Topping


I like baking with apples, especially using the Golden Delicious variety. As you know, the possibilities of baking with apples are plenty, eg. you can bake apple cakes, bread, pies, crumbles, tarts, etc. Well, being the novice baker, I chose to bake this simple apple bread for my children. It turned out smelling great and tasted wonderful. Do try the recipe. Enjoy!

Recipe adapted from Apples for Jam by Tessa Kiros

Apple Bread With Sugar & Cinnamon Topping

Ingredients

150 g (5 1/2 oz) Sugar
150 g (5 1/2 oz) Butter, softened
2 Eggs
120 g (4 1/4 oz) Plain (All-Purpose Flour)
1 tsp Baking Soda
1 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 tsp Ground Cinnamon
1/2 tsp Ground Cardamon
400 g (14 oz/about 2) Apples, peeled, cored and coarsely grated
60 g (2 1/4 oz) Walnuts, lightly toasted and roughly chopped
1 tsp Vanilla Extract

Topping
60 g (2 1/4 oz) Walnuts, finely chopped
60 g (2 1/4 oz) Brown Sugar
1 tsp Ground Cinnamon

Method

Preheat the oven to 180˚C (350˚F/Gas 4). Butter and flour a 30 x 11 cm (12 x 4 inch) loaf tin. Beat together the sugar and butter until fluffy. Add the eggs and beat them in well. Sift the flour, bicarbonate of soda, baking powder, cardamon and cinnamon in, and add a pinch of salt. Mix well. Add the apples, walnuts and vanilla and mix those through well. Scrape the mixture into the tin.

For the topping, mix together the walnuts, sugar and cinnamon and then scatter abundantly over the top of the batter. Bake for about 45 minutes, or until the top is crusty brown and a skewer poked into the middle comes out clean.

Cool slightly before turning out carefully. Do this over your serving plate so that you don't lose any topping. Serve slightly warm or at room temperature on its own, with whipped cream or with a simple vanilla ice cream.

Dumplings

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up!

Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
