Apple Fritter With Raisins Bread - Monthly Challenge Blog Hop

Welcome friends to our Monthly Challenge Blog Hop! 
On the 2nd Monday of each month, a group of talented bloggers share their themed creations for the month, be it Upcycling, family Recipes or Dollar Store Crafts.  This month, we are sharing family Recipes, new or old!

Today, I'm sharing with you a new recipe that's becoming a family favorite!

My hubby loves apple fritters with raisins.  He doesn't find raisins in apple fritters too often, so when he does, he buys a lot! And that's notgood! From the time we were dating until now, I hear quite often, apple fritters, apple fritters, apple fritters!  Oh, and I forgot to tell you he loves baked bread, too! So when I saw a recipe and a easy to follow video for apple fritter bread, I knew this was a way for him to enjoy the best of all three, apple fritters, raisins and bread!   And it's so easy to make despite the many steps.  This recipe was adapted from, a very popular website.

·         ⅓ cup brown sugar
·         2 teaspoons ground cinnamon, divided
·         2 Granny Smith apples, peeled and diced
·         ⅔ cup raisins
·         ½ cup butter, room temperature
·         ⅔ cup granulated sugar
·         2 eggs
·         1-½ teaspoons pure vanilla extract
·         1-½ cups all-purpose flour
·         1-¾ teaspoons baking soda
·         ½ cup + 1 tablespoon milk, divided
·         ½ cup powdered sugar

1.   Preheat oven to 350F degrees.  Spray a 9"x5" load pan with pan spray.  Set aside.
2.   In a small bowl, combine brown sugar with 1 teaspoon of cinnamon.
3.   In another bowl, combine the diced apples with the remaining 1 teaspoon of cinnamon and stir to mix.  Set aside.
4.   In a large bowl, cream together the butter and the granulated sugar.  Beat the eggs in, one at a time until completely mixed.  Add the vanilla extract and mix.
5.   In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour and baking soda.
6.   Add the ½ cup of milk and mix until smooth.
7.   Add flour and baking soda mix to the butter mixture, and stir until well-blended.

8.   Pour half of the batter into the prepared loaf pan.   Layer half of the apple and raisin mixture on top of the batter, followed by half of the brown sugar mixture.  Gently press the apples and raisins into the batter.

9.   Add the remaining batter to the pan, followed by the remaining apples, raisins and brown sugar mixture. Lightly press the apples and raisins into the batter and swirl the brown sugar between the apple chunks  and raisins into the batter.
10. Bake for 50-60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.  Allow to cool for 15 minutes on a wire rack before removing from the pan.
11. While the bread cools, prepare the glaze.  In a small bowl, combine the powdered sugar with the remaining 1 tablespoon of milk.  Mix until smooth, and then drizzle over the cooled bread.  Sorry, I didn't add the glaze to mine.

    "Tasty and yummy," is what hubby said, just like apple fritters!  This is a winner recipe for our family!

  9. First, shadows are the reflection of our existence in the space. Then, our shadows overlap, intertwine, communicate. In this project, shadows are turned into subjective via representations of our mind states. Instead of being distorted by the source of light, the audience will be able to control their own shadows by wearing the headsets that collect EEG data from them and accordingly form fake shadows projected onto the ground beside them.
