The Bardic Chef: Recipe – Apple Crumble Bread

Apples are the most common ingredient. It doesn’t matter what land you’re in, what area you’re at, or the people who live there, someone is going to have some apples. I wonder why that is…


  • 1 ½ cups flour
  • ½ cup milk
  • 1 1/3 cup sugar
  • ½ cup butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 ¼ cup chopped and peeled apples (preferably red or yellow)
  • 2 tsp cinnamon


Butter a 9 inch loaf pan well. Mix together cinnamon, ½ cup of the sugar, then set it to the side. In a new bowl, mix remaining sugar and butter until it forms a paste. Whisk up the eggs to a very fluffy and foamy state, and add to the butter paste, followed by the milk and flour. Mix until just combined.

Pour only half of this into the loaf pan, cover that with half the apples and press them down. Coat with about half the cinnamon mixture, then top with remaining batter. Top with remaining apples, remaining cinnamon, and bake this in a 350 degree oven for an hour.

Must be completely cooled off before removal from pan.
