Oaty Brown Butter Apple Loaf

Happy Tuesday!  Happy for me because I made it through another crazy Monday, and even managed to squeeze in a run at work today.  On Sunday, I put my loaf pan to more good use, but I didn’t have time to write about it.  I made the most delicious brown-butter apple loaf.  It would definitely make a nice addition to any Thanksgiving table, or just because.  I found the original recipe here, and tweaked it a bit to try and make it a tad healthier.  You could probably cut back more on the butter as well.  I tried to, but the metric measurements screwed me up again.

Ingredients:

  • 6-8 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 heaping tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt {I used full-fat}
  • 4 small apples diced {I left the peels on, but if you’re a peel-hater, go ahead and peel them}
  • 3 tbsp concentrado de manzana.  {Not really sure what it is.  It translates to apple concentrate, but I’ve never seen it before in the US.  It’s kind of like an apple jelly, though I’m sure apple butter would work great here as well.}

Directions:

  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Prepare your loaf pan with butter if necessary.
  • Brown your butter in a skillet over medium heat.  Watch it so it doesn’t become burnt butter.
  • Combine the butter in a mixing bowl with brown sugar and eggs.
  • Add flour, oats, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon and stir with a wooden spoon.
  • Add the Greek yogurt, apple concentrate, and apples.  Stir until combined but don’t overmix.
  • Bake for 1 hour until a cake tester comes out clean.
  • Let cool for 20 minutes before removing from loaf pan and transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

This loaf would be perfect with some vanilla ice cream or whipped cream, but it also holds its own with a cold glass of milk or a nice cup of coffee!!  How do you like your apple loaf?
