Baking with Alyzabeth

I don't always bake each weekend, but when I do I have my little helper with me. We were given some Apple Butter this Christmas and decided to look for a recipe to use it in addition to spreading on toast, bagels, biscuits and other breakfast breads.

Other uses for apple butter: swirl some in your favorite vanilla yogurt, in your breakfast oatmeal, swirl in some cottage cheese, spread on a ham or turkey sandwich and add brie cheese; replace some of the oil in your fruit cake recipes (such as carrot cake, spice cake), use on pork chops, warm it with pecans and use as an ice cream topping, on pancakes..... anytime you would use apples. Enjoy!

The Apple Butter we were given:

Sifting the dry ingredients:

Finished baking:

They were yummy and moist. I did substitute two ingredients: it called for bran cereal, I used old fashioned oats; substituted one fourth of the white flour with whole wheat flour. A good recipe to use when you wish to include apple butter in your breakfast bread!
