Cinnamon Apple Loaf

This quick bread loaf is fun and easy to make. I saved this recipe from an old 'Country Woman' magazine. I made a few changes. My daughter dropped by and we were thinking that a lemon sauce/curd would really go well with this. Or serve with a slice of cheese.
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon maple flavoring
  • 1/2 cup tart apple, peeled and chopped
  • 1/3 cup walnuts, chopped 
  • 2 packages (226g/makes 8) refrigerated crescent rolls
  • Glaze:
  • 1/2 cup icing sugar
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon maple flavoring
  1. In a small mixing bowl whisk together brown sugar, flour, cinnamon, egg, and maple flavoring.
  2. Add chopped apple and nuts, stir until combined.
  3. Unroll dough and separate into 8 rectangles, seal the perforations.
  4. Spread each rectangle with apple mixture and roll up starting with the short side.
  5. Place lengthwise in a greased 8" x 4" x 2" loaf pan, making 2 layers, each layer has 4 rolls.
