Apple Cider Bread

Apple Cider Bread

We always have an abundance of apple cider in our house because my kids love the stuff, so when I saw this recipe in Recipe Girl's cookbook, I knew I had to make it.
I like that it came out moist and with lots of flavor, a really good bread, my tip is to try  a combination of apples to give it all different flavors. (i.e. granny smith, braebrun, and Jonathon)

You will need:
2 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 tsp ground cinnamon
½ tsp ground cloves
2/3 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup packed light brown sugar
4 Tbsp (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, room temp
2 large eggs
½ cup apple cider
2 ¼ cup peeled and cored,chopped apples (about 3)
1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice

To Make:
Preheat oven to 350 F.   
Grease and flour a 8 x 5 inch loaf pan.
 In a medium bowl, use mixer to beat the sugars and butter  until light and creamy, 1-2 minutes. 
Beat in the eggs until incorporated. Add the flour mixture half at a time, alternating with the cider, and mix just until combined.

In a small bowl, toss the apples with the lemon juice. Stir in the apples into the batter.
Scoop the batter into the pan. Bake 50-60 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. 
Cool in pan for at least 20 minutes and turn the loaf out onto a wire rack to cool completely.

Then dive in and eat up!
