Caramel Apple Cookie Bread
½ cup + 2 Tbsp. softened butter. The 2 tablespoons are for the caramel apples...
2 small to medium apples peeled and diced (I used gala)
¼ cup brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
2 large eggs
1 cup white sugar
1¾ cup all-purpose flour
½ tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a small sauce pan place 2 tablespoons of butter, ¼ cup sugar and diced apples. On medium to low heat simmer apples for 3-5 minutes or until apples are tender but firm. In large bowl cream the rest of the sugar and butter, slowly add eggs and vanilla to the mixture. Once the mixture has been creamed sift flour, baking soda and salt; mix dry ingredient into the wet ingredients.
Fold caramel apples into the batter so the batter becomes moist and sticky. Once done place batter into a greased loaf pan and put in the oven. The bread should bake for an hour and twenty minutes ( I have a skinny loaf pan so it takes longer to bake, if your loaf pan is wider than mine it make not take as long) or stick a toothpick in the middle. If it comes out clean the bread is done. Let cool completely. Once cool take out the loaf pan and serve.
