Hi, welcome to the Rada kitchen, and today I’m going to make a recipe from our cookbook 101 Recipes with Apples. This is an Apple Nut Bread. I’m going use some fresh-picked apples from my tree and a few simple ingredients.
First you to preheat your oven to 350 degrees. You’ll need a 5 x 9 loaf pan. This is the Rada Loaf Pan, it doesn’t need any pre-seasoning, if you use a metal pan you’ll need to preseason it. The first thing we’re going to do is take 2 cups of flour, a teaspoon of baking powder, a half a teaspoon of baking soda, and a half teaspoon of salt. We’re just going to blend those dry ingredients together. Then you can add a half cup of walnuts. You can also use pecans, which I’m using. I’m using this handy Rada Plain Food Chopper. It chops those nuts to just the right size. Now we’re going to set that aside.
Now in a large bowl we’re going to take a half cup of softened butter, a cup of sugar, and 1 egg. And we’re going to mix that until it’s smooth. Now we’re going to add 1 more egg and a teaspoon of vanilla. And you just want to blend that together. We’ll set this aside.
Now it’s time for the apple part of the recipe. You need 1 cup of shredded apples so you’ll have to peel them first. You’re going to use this Rada Vegetable Peeler, it has a blade on both sides so it works if you’re right or left-handed. You can use any variety of apple in this Apple Nut Bread. These are ones from my trees, a wealthy tree. It’s a nice, sweet baking apple with a little bit of tartness to it.
Now we’re going to take this peeler and shred this apple. I finally sliced them and I’m going to cut them into smaller pieces with this French Chef knife. You just need 1 cup and we’re going to add that to our butter/sugar/egg mixture. Once you have the apples stirred into that add our flour mixture. This is how our mixture looks and we’re going to spread this into that loaf pan. All these Rada knives and utensils are available as a fundraising option for your school, club, team, perhaps you need new choir outfits or band risers. You make 40% no matter how large or small you item its. It’s pretty easy to sell, they’re 100% American made, they come with a Lifetime Guarantee, and everybody could use a sharp knife or useful utensil in the kitchen.
Now we’re going to put this in the oven for 50 to 60 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. You’re going to let it stand before taking it out of the pan.
