Applebutter Bread

OK so you guys, I was looking at my canned goods the other day and thinking of different ways to use things. I like to try new things and having these jars of yumminess affords me the ability to experiment.

So I have a bunch of jars of applebutter. The jams I make go quickly but it always seems the applebutter is the last to go. That could also be because I always make a very large batch of it. Hmmm, well anyway that is going to change now!

I took the idea of swapping out oil with applesauce to a different level. I picked an 8 ounce jar of applebutter and my favorite banana bread recipe and headed to the kitchen. The first round came out good but kind of missing something. Then I figured it out . . . a crumb topping! So here you go!

SO, it starts just like BBB (Banana Blueberry Bread) You cream together until light and fluffy the butter, sugar, and salt. Then add in 2 eggs, buttermilk, and vanilla. Mix until well combined. Here is where the recipe changes… instead of adding in the mashed banana you mix in a jar of applebutter.

I promise it will turn out great it just looks strange at this point.

Then you add in the dry ingredients of flour, baking powder, and baking soda. Mix until combined.

Separate into two well-greased loaf pans. Then make the crumb topping. 6 tablespoons of melted butter, 1 cup flour, 3/4 cup packed light brown sugar, and a teaspoon of cinnamon. This makes a little more than you need, but you can save it and put it on French toast or pancakes if you don’t want to waste.

Back for 40-45 minutes until tester comes out clean. ENJOY!!!
