Apple Cider Loaf

Susan Feliciano


Based on a traditional beer bread recipe, I made this to use up some fresh apple cider before it "turned." Great results! If you don't have apple pie spice, just use a mixture of cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg.

    Drain the dried fruit well and pat dry with paper towels.
  2. Beat together the cider, egg, Bisquick, brown sugar, and apple pie spice in a large mixing bowl until well blended. Stir in the dried fruit bits. Pour batter into prepared pan.
