Simple Apple Butter Bread

While I prefer apple butter with homemade tortillas, eating apple butter bread is the next best thing. This is a pretty simple recipe and would be great with some morning coffee or milk don’t you think?  This bread is MUCH better the next day, after it’s had time to settle and completely cool off. If you don’t let it cool off enough, it will fall apart.  Also, make sure you check it at around 50 minutes to make sure it’s not already done.  So many ovens are off their supposed temperature and I’d hate for you to burn it.  It say one hour, but check at 50 minutes!  Enjoy y’all!

Oh! And if you’re really wanting the best apple butter, you should make it homemade too.  No pictures to show it off but darn tasty.


  • 2 cups self-rising flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 ½ tsp. Cinnamon
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup butter or margarine, melted
  • ¾ cup apple butter
  • 2 Tbsp. Milk
  • Optional: ½ cup chopped pecans and ½ cup pecans


Combine flour, sugar and cinnamon; set aside. Combine eggs, butter, apple butter and milk; beat well. Stir in pecans and raisins. Add flour mixture, stirring just until dry ingredients are moistened. Spoon batter into a greased and floured 9 x 5 x 3-inch loaf pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan 10 minutes; remove to wire rack and cool completely.  Makes one loaf

    Oh, yum! I made some pumpkin butter for Thanksgiving. I bet that would be really good too — with some pumpkin pie spice? Gonna have to test it out.

    I canned brown sugar apple butter this fall, I’m gonna have to go find it so I can make this. I just found breakfast for Saturday morning. My kids will love me. Thank you

    What a great way to use up excess apples. I checked out your recipe for apple butter and will definitely be making it when our apples are in season. And combined with the apple bread, I imagine it will be a taste sensation.

    Sounds just scrumptious.

    I’ve never had Apple-Butter bread but this looks and sounds delicious – instead of raisins, we may use small chucks of apple. Thanks for the great recipe!
