A Few Baked Goods Recipes

Apple Bread by Marsha Ryker (Blue Jacket)

1) Beat together 2 cups sugar, 1 cup oil, 3 eggs
2) Sift together and add 3 cups flour, and 1 teaspoon each of salt, cinnamon, baking soda.
3) Then Add 2 teaspoons vanilla, 3 cups diced apples, 1 cup chopped nuts
Mix well. Put into two 8x5 loaf pans that you have greased and floured. Sprinkle tops with sugar/cinnamon mixture. Bake at 325 for 1 hour or until pick comes out clean.

Notes: I often use the slightly smaller aluminum pans and this recipe makes three of them. Bake only 50 minutes.
When our nut allergy family members are around; I use craisens instead.

Baked Donuts

5 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg
1 cup flour
2 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
cinnamon sugar

Cream together butter and sugar; add egg and mix well.
Sift together flour, baking powder and salt and add to creamed mixture alternately with milk and vanilla.

Place batter into 12 greased muffin tins half-way full.
Sprinkle batter with cinnamon sugar. Bake at 350 for 25 minutes.

If you wait until they are completely cooled with no residual oven heat, you'll find the flavor is at it's best. Similar to cake donuts.

Easy Muffins

Not exactly a recipe, but instructions to simplify.

1 package of any kind of muffin mix
1 cup applesauce (more or less depending on the mix itself)
Combine the two, and spoon into a sprayed six-muffin pan.
Bake at 350 for 20 minutes.

Any style or brand of mix will work.
Do not add milk, eggs, oil, water or anything else the package begs for.
