Apple Maple Pound Cake

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr


Apple and maple just fit. They make the cutest, tastiest couple in the baking world! I had to use them to create a sweet little treat to munch on with coffee, crumble over ice cream, or enjoy on its own.  I use my little Silicone Mini Loaf Pan to make mini loaves – and these turned out absolutely amazing!  You can definitely use this recipe to make a single loaf, too!

WHAT YOU NEED:

  • 2 sticks unsalted butter (room temperature)
  • 3/4 cups sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp maple flavoring
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 3/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 cups finely diced and peeled apple (about 1 medium apple)
  • 2 tablespoons flour

Maple Glaze

  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar (sifted)
  • 1 tablespoon milk or water
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup OR maple flavoring

MAKE THEM:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

In your mixer, beat the butter and sugar until soft and fluffy.

Beat in eggs, one at a time.

Beat in vanilla, maple, and maple syrup.

In a medium bowl, sift salt, baking powder, and flour.

Alternate addition of flour mixture and milk, little bits at a time, starting and ending with the flour mixture.

Combine diced apple and flour until coated.

Fold into batter.

Lightly spray loaf molds or pan, then tossed a very light amount of flour to coat.

Fill each loaf mold 3/4 full with batter, or fill loaf pan.

Bake 20-28 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean. Bake 50-60 minutes for a single loaf.

Cool on a rack in the pan. Once completely cool, then gently take out of the molds.

Mix the sifted powdered sugar, milk, and maple extract until completely combined and smooth.

Dip tops of each loaf in the maple glaze.

Set to dry.

ENJOY!
