So as if it isn’t enough of a culinary distraction when I decide to blog about cooking. Everything takes twice as long because there are so many perfect photos to be taken. Insert a photogenic kid and it takes two hours to make bread.
A few weeks back, I was so excited to see that Costco was carrying organic apples. I didn’t hesitate to purchase a whole mess of them. Unfortunately, they taste like ass. So, when life gives you shitty apples, make apple bread.
Bug was an entertaining sous chef and Alice the perfect line cook. We took breaks to dance and they got to hear her mama use some colorful language when she realized perhaps there is something to the whole *sifting* craze and that maybe she should have added the wet ingredients into the dry instead of the dry into the wet and three eggs instead of two like the recipe said…The “bread” dough looked more like dry oatmeal. No biggy. I just added a cup of yogurt and beat the heck out of it.
It smells great. It looks funky. It tastes fabulous.
1 cup canola oil
2 cups sugar
2 tsp. vanilla
1 cup yogurt
3 cups apples, chopped
3 cups flour
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. baking soda
Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Combine oil, eggs, sugar and vanilla in small bowl. In separate bowl, combine dry ingredients. Add wet ingredients to dry and mix well, adding yogurt little by little while stirring. Stir in apples. Bake in two loaf pans for 1 1/2 hours. voila.
It looks like apple cake. Call it that and no one will mind! Looks fab.
