3rd Zojirushi ''bread'': Apple Spice cake

BellsmomFebruary 5, 2013

DH loves a sweet after evening meals. This is my 3rd Zoji ''bread''--an apple spice cake from the manual.
Unbelievably simple and good.
Just measure,dump in loaf pan, start machine. Chop apples. Add at bell.
Go read a book.

(Having no beaters or mixing bowls to wash means clean up is unbelievably easy. A quick wash of measuring utensils, and when the loaf comes out, a very quick wash of the loaf pan, to which nothing sticks.)

The cake is prettier than it looks here, with a shiny, slightly crisp crust. It was baked, as the recipe instructed, at the light crust setting. I considered icing but decided it was unnecessary and distracting.

I am posting these first breads for people who were interested in the Zoji when I was considering buying it and asked me to apprise them of likes and dislikes. So far, only likes.

I plan to post once more--a whole grain bread, so these posts won't go on forever, I promise. But you know how some of us are when we get a new toy!

That looks so good. I use my bread machine all the time.
Most of the time for mixing dough and baking into rolls,hamburger buns, pizza dough or pain de mie (special loaf pan bread for sandwiches)
You will love make bread and quick breads in your machine. Much less expensive that store bought and you control the ingredients

Wow that looks good. I like the idea of the apples in it.
You're giving your new Zo a real workout!!

Did you post a recipe for your raisin bread? That looks to-die for. Can I make it by hand, not having a machine?

That is a perfect sweet and it doesn't need icing. It is a distraction;spot on definition. It looks delicious. Enjoy your new, carefree toy. Clean up matters a lot to me, so I appreciate your thoughts.

Three for 3.
