This post will gear towards those with a crazy busy schedule. With this simple recipe, I dressed up a pumpkin bread mix and now it feels like it was made from scratch. With the diced apple and brandied apple butter, the bread will be very soft. The simple crumble on top will give another element of flavor with each bite. Who’s ready to whip up a batch of Brandied Apple Pumpkin Bread?
One of my favorite times of the year growing up was taking a trip to my family’s applebarn. My Aunt’s applebarn has been in her family for several generations. Now my cousins are helping to keep this family business thriving and amazing. In the Spring I was home for a short trip, but I managed to grab some goodies while I was there. Then my parents came to my house for a visit, and stocked me up again on treats. Since I cannot get home during the Fall season, at least I can still enjoy all the amazing that comes out of those four walls. The Brandied Apple Butter was beyond delicious, and a perfect compliment to the pumpkin bread mix. In the end, this bread had so many different spices and addictions, it felt like you were enjoying a homemade spice cake.
This recipe was hubby approved, so trust me when I say, give it a try! I have an amaretto apple butter waiting to be used, and plan to make a special treat next week. Here are a few other apple recipes that are not time consuming, and always delicious: Apple Cardamom Dessert Pizza, Apple Pie Snack Cakes, Uncle Alan’s Apple and Peach Delight Cocktail.
