I made this Dutch Apple Loaf today and it was so good awesome. As a rule I don't love cooked apples but this was so moist and yummy and makes the house smell heavenly. I feel so domestic when I bake and it actually turns out like it's supposed to. This is an interesting recipe 'cause it doesn't have any spices in the dough and only takes some cinnamon in the topping but it's so good even without all the yummy spices. Anyhoo, loved this recipe, so easy and worth the time. Oh yea and I used my apples from my trees. Actually I have about 15 apple trees and only one had fruit this year so I'm making use of my 20 apple harvest.
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup buttermilk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
2 cups diced peeled tart apples
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/4 cup cold butter, cubed
In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in buttermilk and vanilla.
Combine the flour, baking powder, salt and baking soda; gradually add to creamed mixture.
Fold in apples and walnuts.
Pour into a greased 9-in. x 5-in. loaf pan.
For topping, combine the sugar, flour and cinnamon. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle over batter.
Bake at 350° for 55-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack.
Yield: 1 loaf (16 slices).
