Apple Nut Bread / Gluten Free
This recipe is delicious, packed full of flavor in every bite. The recipe was on the package of Quinoa Flour - Meg's Apple Nut Bread; it's also on the site. There are other Quinoa brands out there I just happened to get this.
I did make a couple of changes on the recipe, I didn't have raisins so I used blueberries I this summer and I was out of vanilla - you wouldn't notice if you didn't use it. Oh I did make my own applesauce the night before I make it a little chunky and plain for recipes. (I a good way of using up apple that are getting soft or maybe bruised I don't through away something I can use).
Apple Nut Bread
2 1/2 C quinoa flour
1 1/3 C applesauce
1/2 C butter
1 Cup of Nature Brown sugar (Demerara Cane or I'm sure brown is fine)
1/2 Cup of chopped walnuts
1 baking apple, peeled and grated
2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 Cup raisions
Pre-heat oven to 350 - oil/grease 1 loaf pan.
Cream together butter and sugar; then beat in eggs one at a time. Next add in applesauce, apple, raisins, nuts and vanilla. Stir in all the dry ingredients put into prepared loaf pan and bake for 50 - 60 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Let cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to wire rack.
It's a moist loaf and can crumble some when cutting.
A note about the picture; the first two pictures I took turned out much better than the one posted. I was so anxious to try a piece that I forgot to put my memory card in the camera! LOL
