This post is for all my fellow mothers of boys. I'm pretty sure that mothers of boys - let's call us M.O.B's for short - should have our own special national holiday. Seriously...complete with marching band and waiving banners applauding us M.O.B's for the craaaaazy crap we deal with on a daily hourly basis.

Case in point: here are just a few of my Facebook posts recently.

Um...yeah. So that's my kid. I don't have girls, but I'm pretty sure girls don't run around urinating on their own faces and sticking their tongues on any random object that happens by.

Buuuuuut, I kinda sorta love him and I overlook his 6 year old neanderthal instincts, and on days when I think I'm going nuts - I dive headfirst into a tasty treat.

Like this Apple Butter Bread with Cinnamon Glaze. It's moist, spicy, and a great way to forget that you birthed a child who pees on his own face. If you're feeling extra motivated, you can even make your very own apple butter with my recipe for Red Hot Apple Butter.  Enjoy!

Apple Butter Bread with Cinnamon Glaze
Yield: 1 loaf   Printable Recipe

1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar
1 egg
3/4 cup buttermilk
2 tsp baking soda
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp ground nutmeg
1 tsp ground allspice
1 cup apple butter
3/4 cup chopped pecans

Cinnamon Glaze:
1 cup powdered sugar
2 tbsp butter, softened
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1-2 tbsp milk
1/2 tsp vanilla extract

In the bowl of an electric mixer cream the butter and brown sugar. Add the egg and beat well. In glass measuring cup combine the buttermilk and baking soda. Set aside. In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice. Add the flour mixture to the creamed mixture alternately with the buttermilk mixture, beginning and ending with the flour.

Stir in the apple butter and chopped pecans. Pour into a greased 9-in x 5-in x 3-in loaf pan. Bake at 350 F for 1 hour and 5 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Depending on your oven, you may need to cook for more or less time. Do not over bake or your bread will turn out dry. Cool in the pan for 5 minutes, then remove to a wire rack to cool completely.

For the Glaze: Mix together the powdered sugar, butter, cinnamon, vanilla, and enough milk to reach your desired consistency. I usually use 1-2 tbsp. Drizzle over the bread and allow to cool completely.

Too funny! I don't have children yet but I'm sure if I have boys, I'll have to deal with facial urination and all that good stuff.

Unknown said...

Thanks Karly! You're right, I guess I shouldn't knock it til I've tried it , right?

Mary Rose said...

This looks scrumptuous and I'm in the middle of making this, but your recipe does not state when the apple butter is added... I'm assuming it will be after the egg...nso thta'ts when i'm adding it... Hope its correct. Please clarify

Mary Rose said...

Also the pecan, which I'm adding at the end with the last bit of flour mix so they won't sink

Unknown said...

Hi Mary, the instructions state to add the apple butter in the second paragraph, just before the nuts are stirred in. Thanks! :) Amber
