Apple Spice Bread

We were going to dinner at my parents’ and I wanted to bring something for dessert. Unfortunately, we were running late as usual, so I needed to do something quick! I opted for a Duncan Hines Spice Cake mix combined with our Spiced Apple Sauvignon Blanc. It came out moist and delicious, and smelled fantastic! When I am not pressed for time, I like to make everything from scratch, so that’s the recipe I am posting here. Hope you enjoy!

Apple Spice Bread

Ingredients:

3/4 c. sugar

Apple Spice Bread

Apple Spice Bread

1/2 c. Spiced Apple Sauvignon Blanc wine jelly

1 c. + 2 Tbs. all purpose flour

1/2 c. plain yogurt (or sour cream)

2 eggs

1/2 tsp vanilla

1 1/4 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp allspice

1/2 tsp nutmeg

1/2 tsp ground cloves

1/4 tsp salt

1/2 tsp baking soda

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour one loaf pan.

2. In a large bowl, cream together sugar, jelly, yogurt, eggs and vanilla.

3. In another large bowl, mix remaining dry ingredients.

4. Fold dry ingredients into creamed mixture. Take care not to mix too much or your bread will end up tough.

5. Pour into loaf pan and bake for 30-35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Try not to open the oven until you are pretty sure it is finished, otherwise the middle of your loaf will fall!

6. Cool in pan on a wire rack for about 15 minutes, then remove from pan.

7. Enjoy! Try not to eat it all at once!

TIP: You can wrap individual slices in plastic wrap and freeze them for later. Just pop them in the microwave for 30 seconds or so and enjoy a slice in the morning with your coffee!
