Archive for the ‘Favorite Fall Four – Delicious Breads!’ Category

I have approached the most dangerous time of year for my waist line and the best time of year for food!  I love fall foods with pumpkins, zucchini, apples, cinnamon, cloves, ginger, nutmeg, all spice.  Mmm…I’m drooling and I havent even mentioned all the other fall deserts and foods I love.

I thought I’d take this months theme to share some of my favorite recipes with you.  This post is devoted to my families top four favorite fall desert breads.  Read further so you can drool along with me!

Zucchini Bread:

My husband and I prefer this bread plain while my kids love it with mini chocolate chips baked on top!

1 tsp cinnamon, heaping

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350°.  Mix together in medium sized mixing bowl, the eggs, oil, sugar, zucchini and vanilla.  Add remaining ingredients and pour into two greased bread pans.  Bake 45-60 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.  Allow to cool before removing from pan and serving.

Sweet Potato & Raisin Bread

I’m not really into sweet potatoes but I love this bread!

2 1/2 c flour

2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

1 tsp cinnamon, heaping

1 tsp nutmeg

2 c sweet potatoes, mashed

1/2 c brown sugar

1/2 c butter (not margarine)

3 eggs

1/2 c raisins

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350°.  In medium sized mixing bowl beat potatoes, sugars, butter and eggs until well mixed.  Add remaining ingredients and stir with spoon.  Poor into one greased loaf pan and bake for 1-1 1/4 hours or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.  Allow to cool before removing from pan and serving.

Pumpkin Bread With Cream Cheese Filling

When I made this bread last fall it quickly became my family’s very favorite way to have pumpkin bread!

Ingredients:

Bread:

15 oz can pumpkin puree

1 c brown sugar

1/2 c sugar

3 eggs

2 tsp baking powder

1/4 c milk

5  TBSP butter (not margarine)

2 3/4 c flour

2 TBSP cinnamon

Filling:

8 oz cream cheese

1/3 c sugar

1 egg

Directions:

Preheat over to 350°.  In a large bowl beat pumpkin, sugars, eggs, milk butter, flour, baking soda and cinnamon until well mixed.

In a separate bowl beat cream cheese, sugar and egg.

Generously grease and flour one loaf pan.  Spoon 1/3 of bread batter into bottom of the pan.  Then spread 1/2 the cream cheese mixture over this followed by 1/2 of the remaining bread batter.  Spread the last of the cream cheese mixture over this layer then pour in the remainder of the bread batter.  Bake for 45-60 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.  Allow to cool before removing from pan and serving.

Apple Streusel Bread

This bread is so good when warm with a butter on top!

Ingredients:

2 c flour

3/4 c brown sugar

2 tsp cinnamon

1 TBSP baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp ground nutmeg

1 1/2 c apples, peeled and chopped very small

2 eggs

1/2 c canola oil

1/2 c milk

Streusel Topping:

1/4 c brown sugar

1 tsp cinnamon

2 TBSP flour

2 TBSP butter, softened

Preheat over to 375°.  In medium bowl toss apples with flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, baking powder, salt and nutmeg.  Add eggs, oil and milk and mix thoroughly.  Pour into one greased loaf pan.

In small bowl combine sugar, cinnamon and flour.  Using a fork or pastry blender cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.  Sprinkle streusel mixture on top of bread batter and bake for 40-50 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.  Remove from pan and allow to cool on wire rack.

I hope you enjoy these breads as much as we do.  These are a few breads we plan on trying out this fall (Sites with the recipes are linked through the images.):
