Yum yum yum

I apologize. For that pig trotter vinegar stew picture. I’m sure it put you off your breakfast/ lunch/ dinner. Some of you might even have thrown up a little. 

So I’m going to try and redeem myself. 

A few months ago, I was looking for yummy recipes I could make for my baby (now toddler!) and I found this. The recipe says ‘bread’ but it turned out more like cake in terms of texture. Nevertheless, it was YUMMY. It turned out the baby didn’t like it. That was alright –  MORE FOR ME!
Apple bread
If you want to give it a go, here’s the recipe from Wholesome Baby Food.

  7. 1/2 teaspoon salt
  8. 2 teaspoons baking powder

  2. Add eggs and beat well. Sift together flour, cinnamon, salt, and baking powder.
  3. Add milk, raisins, apples, nuts, and dry ingredients to mixture and stir only until flour is well dampened.
  4. Bake in well-greased 9 x 5 x 4 inch loaf pan at 350 degrees for 50 to 60 minutes. Cool; remove from pan.
  5. If using glaze: Combine glaze ingredients; mix well and pour over loaf. Let glaze set before wrapping loaf tightly. Best if made day prior to serving.
  6. If turning into sticks: Preheat oven to 200-250F and cut the bread into stick-like slices. Place the slices on a baking sheet and allow the sticks to bake for approximately 2 hours, or until hard and crunchy.
