Apple Cornmeal Bread

A healthy quick bread which has no processed ingredients. It has a very earthy taste from the molasses. This will make 3 mini loafs or a big loaf.. I made 2 mini loafs and 2 jumbo muffins out of this… I got the recipe from here and made few changes.. Very happy to include this for BM - Kids delight – desserts.

Ingredients
Apple – 1
Whole Wheat Flour – 2/3 cup
Molasses – ¼ cup
Buttermilk – 1/3 cup (or 2 table spoons yogurt with remaining water well beaten)
Almonds– ¼ cup + for topping
Salt – 1/8 tea spoon
Baking Powder – 1 ¼ tea spoons
Baking Soda – 1 ¼ tea spoons
Nutmeg Powder – ½ tea spoon
Cinnamon Powder – 1 ½ tea spoons
Corn Meal – ¼ cup
Whole Wheat Pastry Flour / Chapathi Atta – 2 table spoons
Butter – 2 table spoons
Oil – 2 table spoons
Applesauce – ½ cup


Method
Grease two 5 inch mini loaf pans or one 8 inch loaf pan with oil or butter.
Preheat oven to 180 C.
Put slivered almonds in the bottom of pan and then rotate pan to distribute them around the bottom and sides so they’ll stick to the greased pan and set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the flours, cornmeal, baking soda, baking powder, ground cinnamon, salt and crushed almonds with a whisk.
Microwave the butter for 10-20 secs and not more to just soften slightly.
Whisk together butter and sugar until creamy in another mixing bowl. Now, whisk together the remaining wet ingredients – buttermilk, molasses, applesauce and vanilla extract.
Stir the wet mixture into the dry ingredients bowl and fold in chopped apples gently until just combined. Do not over mix. Spoon batter into the pan(s) using a silicon spatula for near zero batter wastage. If using two 5 inch pans, place them at least 2 inches apart for uniform hot air circulation.
Bake until cooked through and a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean, about 30 to 35 minutes for 5 inch pan and 45-50 minutes for 8 inch pan. Do not over bake. My muffins took 25 minutes and my mini loaf took 30 minutes to bake..
Let cool on a wire rack. Loosen the edges with a knife and then invert onto a plate.
Serve warm or at room temperature.
