Apple Butter Bread

This is a super short post to share a great bread machine recipe with you all. I couldn't snag very many decent pics because it is very overcast and the natural light available is pretty much NIL. Yes, I have artificial lighting but I had no desire to haul it out today and set it up.

I had some apple butter left over from a recent recipe and wanted to test it out in a yeast bread. What a great baking ingredient . Turned out beautifully. What I love most about the recipe is the fact that it is all made in the breadmaker. No kneading for me and as my arthritis is flaring lately that is a good thing !

The loaf rose up perfectly and has a superb sweet taste. This is amazing toasted and slathered with , you guessed it, some more apple butter . I would also think this would be incredible as sandwich bread with roasted pork. Can you imagine that ?! I can.

An easy and delicious recipe that puts to good use the sweet flavors of apple butter



1 cup water at room temperature
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 cup apple butter
2 tablespoons oil
1 cup whole wheat flour
2 cups bread flour
1 1/2 teaspoons of yeast


ADD the following ingredients, in the order above, to your bread machine
SET breadmaker to 1.5 lb regular white bread loaf setting
