It is Wednesday! The week is halfway over… not sure how I feel about that! haha! That means the baby is now closer to five weeks, than six! Augh! Lots to do to get ready! I am super excited to share one of my families favorite breads! APPLE SPICE!! This is Mikes favorite and no lie, I have made him a loaf to take to school before and he has literally eaten the entire loaf like a candy bar, not cutting it or anything!
There are a few steps, I wanted to take pictures of lots of them so…. lots of pictures! Hope you love it!
Oh and I use my favorite scoop from Pampered chef, it is the large scoop, I again am not getting paid for this, just wanted to share the one I love! You can buy it HERE!
Apple Spice Muffins Recipe
Chop up lots of apples! You need 3 cups of peeled, chopped apples. I think granny smith, braeburn, fugi or Cortland are the best. I would not use red delicious or golden.
In a mixing bowl, cream together: 2 cups of sugar, 1 1/4 cups of vegetable oil, 3 eggs and 2 tsp vanilla.
Once creamed together, slowly add in flour mixture until mixed thoroughly.
Stir in chopped apples.
You can put in a greased loaf pan or place in greased muffin liners. Here is my favorite scoop! Please don’t mind my super old cupcake pans! Holy cow those are well loved!
Bake at 325 loaves 1 hr 15 min, muffins 20-25 min. Let them cool for about ten minutes before removing bread from pan, muffins you can remove right away!
ENJOY! I like to freeze them too, last week I made about 8 dozen and froze them for baby time breakfasts!

Dr apt, baby looks great and is head down! Pray he turns his head though. He is facing the wrong way! 5 weeks left so hopefully he will move!
