Recipe For Apple And Almond Bread

I have been experimenting using my bread maker to make jam – with some success. I had been given a selection of Apples by Sam and not wanting them to go to waste I decided to make apple jelly. I used 500g of apples and a few sprigs of rosemary (picked) to make the jam, with a combination of fructose, grape juice and citric acid. I have not got the balance quite right and the jam is still too sweet. It will make a lovely apple sauce to accompany our roasts though so it will at least not go to waste. When I saw this month’s 12 loaves challenge I decided to use the apple sauce I had made in my bread. I have once again used the bread maker to do all the hard work as at this time of the year even though the weather is slightly better I am under a lot of time pressure. I know that as soon as our summer holidays start, I will have more time on my hands to do the hard work involved in making bread. This apple bread was really lovely. You got a hint of apples in the taste and it made a really good, tasty breakfast bread.

do you make your own jams?

  2. This bread sounds delicious! I’ve made jam, but I haven’t used citric acid…this is a new ingredient for me (it is also in your bread recipe!), interesting.

  9. I have never used apple sauce in a bread, but this sounds great. I like the addition of almonds for a bit of texture.

    1. The almonds were a bit soft but still added texture, if that makes sense?
