Cinnamon Crumb Surprise

Sunday, October 15, 2006
People are always asking me what bread has been my favorite. I tell them indignantly that I can't answer that--it would be like saying who is my favorite child. Anyway, I can't even remember what breads I've made unless I sit down with a list, in which case I'm very impressed with myself, if I do say so.
But this lovely quick bread, which is really more like an apple cake, might make it on my Top Ten list.

This is not a difficult bread to make, but it's fairly time-consuming. I expected to have it ready for a mid-afternoon tea at 3:00, but it was more like 5:00 when we ate it. Not that there's anything wrong with a 5:00 tea.
I had most of the mixing bowls I owned filled up with something--the dry ingredients, the egg and sour cream mixture, the crumble, the sliced apples, the nut-and-sugar mix, so the kitchen was a mess when I was done. And by the time I cleaned up, it was ready to take out of the oven.

Then came another challenging step. First you had to let it cool for ten minutes, then invert it on a flat plate on which you've put a clean cotton towel covered with oiled plastic wrap.

I wasn't sure what would happen after I removed the pan. If all went well, it would just lift off, revealing a lovely, browned cake. If not, it would be a mess.

What a relief! Now the only step left was to cut slices and eat them. Can you really blame us for eating two pieces?

AAuugghh! The suspense! First the broken oven! Now a messed-up mixer! Will the Basketcase finish? What about the scary breads left to do? I'm all a tingle! And hungry, I gotta try me some of this appley-crunch thing. 'Tis the season for apple snacks. I love baking in the fall.

I'm with you on the fall baking thing--there were some summer days when I thought I was insane to turn on the oven. Now it makes the kitchen toasty-warm--nice on a fall day. I noticed farmers' markets selling Macoun apples in New England. That's a fine apple, but have you tried the University of Minnesota's Honeycrisp? It's possibly even finer.

Oh , Marie,
What a coincidence, I made this yesterday in the afternoon planned to have it for tea around 4pm but I hardly made it until 5pm. I of course ,fully understand the chaotic situation in the kitchen . However I was not as fortunate as you for I try to get it out too hastily. I did not wait 10 minutes and the top part just slided off at the level of the apple making "a Mess" It was "reconstructed" at last but the taste made up for all the inadequacy.

Do you love them all equally? (^_~) I tell mine that I do, but I really favor the rolls I make using the mushroom dough. Each is stuffed with a Japanese black pork sausage. Mmm... I hope the others never find out.

That loaf looks like apple crumb awesomeness to me. Add some Devonshire cream and a stiff cup of Murchie's CBC blend tea, and I'm a happy camper.

I like Mccoun's for eating and dutchess and cortland for baking (a bias handed down directly from mom). I haven't seen a honeycrisp, but my motto has always been "so many apples, so little time". As a coincidental aside, we went to VT this weekend and attended the Cabot apple festival (with apple pie contest, same winner 3rd year running) and they had a bunch of different apple varieties to try. My DH deemed the Liberty apple a top ten lifetime eat, which is impressive because although he isn't particularly old, he is an apple-a-day fella. We finished off with the Cabot Chicken Pie supper. Heaven.

I've had my eye on this recipe for awhile! Thanks for letting me live vicariously through your blog. If only you could sample through the blog, too.

Yiuma,
Too bad! As I've made my way through this book, I have discovered that I ignore Rose's instructions at my peril. I know that people complain that her instructions are too long, but most of the times I've screwed up, it's because I didn't pay attention to some direction.

CP,
I've never had Japanese black pork sausage, but I like the idea of any kind of sausage in a roll made from the mushroom bread.
Unless I'm saying something complimentary to a bread, I speak in a whisper.

Breadbasketcase, your adventure is one of my favorite places to check. In moments of madness, I sometimes catch myself thinking I may need to have my own adventure and work my way through this marvelous book like you have. I discovered this cinnamon apple surprise bread shortly after I bought the book (a couple of years ago) and haven't made it in a while. Perfect timing -- I have several honeycrisp apples waiting for a "home" so off to the kitchen I go. Mmmmm -- a good reason to get out of bed tomorrow morning!

K2Q,
Lucky you! I will have only cereal to wake up to tomorrow morning, while you'll have this great bread--what a great way to start a Friday!

I love Honeycrisps! It's probably my favorate apple. Colorado growers don't grow too many of the New England varieties (I've never been able to try and Empire or a Cortland for example). Honeycrisps grow well here and there is always an abundance of them from September through November. I also like Ginger Golds and Pink Ladies.

breadbasketcase said...

I like Pink Ladies too, but I've never heard of a Ginger Gold. I wonder if there's a market for Apple Namers.

Rokzane said...

I've always wondered that myself :). Ginger Golds are really special. They are only in season for a few weeks in September, so they can be hard to find. They have a yellow gold interior, a pale green skin that looks kinda of gold specked, and they have a faint sweet, ginger like taste. Really marvelous, and they are an all purpose apple to boot.
