Apple Cinnamon Rum Loaf

What can you do with 5 apples? Well I made an Apple Cinnamon Rum Loaf with 2 apples. Usually when I think of Thanksgiving, I think of apple, pumpkin, and pecan pies. So after the Halloween weekend, wih all the candy and chocolate, I decided to go in a more fruity direction and the theme of this week was apples. This recipe is not a typical cake nor loaf recipe. I took a basic sugar cookie recipe and folded diced pieces of apple with the apples syrup into the sugar cookie recipe. Then just simply poured the mixture into 3 mini foil loaf pans. So lets begin, and it will only take about 30-45 minutes to prep and then about 30 minutes of bake time.

Apple Filling:

2 Granny Smith Apples- peeled, cored, and diced/chopped small

1/4 cup Sugar

1 tbsp Cinnamon

1 tsp Nutmeg

1 tbsp Rum (dark or light)

1. Peel, core, and dice the apples into small pieces. Place medium saucepan over low heat and place apples, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and rum into the pot. Stir all ingredients together for about 1 to 2 mintues until well coated, then cover and let cook for about 8 mintues or to your liking.

2. Once done to your taste and texture, remove from heat and let completely cool.

Sugar Cookie Recipe:

2 cups sifted All-Purpose flour

1/4 tsp Salt

1/2 tsp Baking powder

1/2 cup (stick) unsalted butter

1 cup Suagr

1 Large egg

1 tbsp Rum (dark or light)

1 tsp Cinnamon

1. Sift together flour, salt, baking powder and cinnamon in a large bowl; set aside.

2. Cream butter and sugar together, with an electric mixer on medium speed until pale and fluffy. Add egg and rum and mix until smooth, 1 minute. Add flour mixture and mix until combined.

3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Pour out the mixture in 3 mini loaf pans or 1 big loaf pan. Bake time varies; for mini loaf pans, bake all for about 30 minutes or until done in the center. Large loaf pan will need to bake for about 50 minutes or until done in the center.

4. Let cool and Enjoy!

* Remember that this recipe can be made with a yellow cake mix, just add stor bought or homemade apples.
