I was in need of something yummy to start out my days this week. I was rummaging through my kitchen trying to figure out what I could make. I found some apple butter (I had to put on waffles), and some frozen cherries. I figured I could make some sort of a bread out of these.
I have to say this is a great breakfast! Easy to cut up, put in sandwich bags and take it to work. I love this bread because it isn’t too sweet. The bread itself has warm cinnamon apple flavor and every now and then you get a bite of sweet cherry to livin’ things up. Great with a cup of warm chai on a rainy cold morning. I think this would be even better if you warmed it up in a toaster oven. Mmmm 🙂
Cherry Apple Butter Bread
Based on a recipe by Happy Herbivore
- 2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- ½ tsp ground ginger
- 1 tsp baking powder
- ½ tsp baking soda
- ½ cup apple butter
- ¼ cup organic sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 cup plant-based milk
- 1 cup pitted cherries, frozen
Preheat oven to 350 F.
In a large bowl, combine flour, cinnamon, ginger, baking soda and baking powder together.
In a separate bowl combine apple butter, sugar, extract and non-dairy milk and mix until just combined,
Add wet ingredients to dry and stir until just combine. You add a little extra non-dairy milk, if necessary.
Gently fold in cherries, transferring to a greased or non-stick 9×9 pan. And bake 30-35 minutes or until an inserted tooth pick comes out clean.
*If you would like this bread to be sweeter you can add 1/4 cup of brown sugar to the wet ingredients.
