Apple Spice Bread
1/2 c butter, room temperature
2 eggs, room temperature
2/3 c sugar (I use organic cane or raw sugar)
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 2/3 c flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp ground cloves
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp cinnamon
2/3 c buttermilk (add 2 tsp lemon juice or white vinegar to 2/3 c white milk if you don't have buttermilk and let it sit for at least 5 minutes)
2 medium apples, I used honey crisp, peel and chop into small pieces
Topping is 3 T brown sugar, pinch of cloves, 1 tsp cinnamon (mix it together with your fingers or a fork)
Beat (on low speed of mixer) butter and sugar until smooth. Add eggs and vanilla and mix for about a minute. Add dry ingredients and combine until mixed together. The batter will be fairly thick.
Bake 350F for about 45-50 minutes, depending on your oven. I always use grandma's method and insert a toothpick into the bread, if it comes out clean, it's done. If not, try another 5 minutes until it's ready.
Enjoy your wonderful apple spice bread and don't forget to enjoy the scents of the season!
Love and peace,
