Guest Post - Apple Bread by Deb from Cooking on the Front Burner

Happy Monday!  I'm Deb and today I am happy to have a guest post with Nichi at The Mandatory Mooch... Thanks for having me!  I've been blogging for 2 years and in fact this week is my 2 year anniversary.  Come back on February 13th to join in my giveaway.

Featured today is a blast from the past when The DIY Guy was a wee lad.  This is his mom's recipe and I've made it a few times over our almost 30 years together! What I like about this recipe is that it comes together quite quick - the longest part is waiting for the dough to rise but after it bakes and comes out of the oven - you don't need to wait long to eat it.  It is best served warm and the cinnamon and apple aroma will have people running into your kitchen pronto!

The first step is placing melted butter, cinnamon and sugar in a 9x9 plan.  Next place thinly sliced apples and pecans (or you could use walnuts, raisins or craisins) on top.


The dough is mixed a a bowl and then dropped by small spoonfuls onto the above mixture.  Since the dough is...well a dough... you will need to probably use your hands to make sure it is evenly distributed. It is OK to have some dough not touching as below - when it rises those spaces will get filled up.


Once it is covered and rises for about an hour, it is baked at 375 for 30-35 minutes until it is golden brown.  Remove from oven and immediately flip onto a square platter.


Let cool slightly then slice up and enjoy!


If you have leftovers (you might not!), just place in the microwave and warm up a bit.

I hope you enjoy this recipe and if you give it try, let me know - I would love to hear what you think!

If you are reading this from Nichi's, I hope you will stop by to see me!
