ABC Bread

A is for Apple
B is for Banana
C is for Cinnamon Chips
Nathan and I made this super yummy bread.  The recipe calls for chocolate chips, instead of cinnamon, but I thought we would mix it up and use cinnamon chips.  It was delicious.
1 3/4 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
2-3 ripe bananas
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup vegetable oil
2 large eggs
1 medium apple
1/2 cup cinnamon chips
Now, I'm a dump it all in and stir it up girl, as we know...usually not even measuring, this time I did measure, but I still dumped it all in the bowl and mixed it up and it turned out just fine.  But if you like to follow recipes to the T, here it is....
turn oven on to 350*
in a big bowl, mix the flour, baking powder, and baking soda.
make a 'well' in the middle of your pile of flour by poking it with your finger or a spoon
in a smaller bowl, use a fork to mash the bananas
add the sugar, oil and eggs to the mashed bananas.  beat them well
pour this mixture into the well you made in the flour.  mix everything together, try to get all the lumps out, so your bread is smooth and free from bubbles.
dice the apple and add them and the chips to the batter and mix it once more.
grease a bread pan and pour the batter into the pan.  bake it for 60 mins or until it is brown on top and dry on the inside.  make sure it's cool before digging in.
I can't remember which book we got the recipe from...
 I'm guessing it was "An Apple a Day" was full of activities for kids using apples.
We also made two apple pies too, to go along with the book The Apple Pie Tree.
for another cute book and pie craft check out Nathan's pie here.
we love baking during this time of year, don't you?
