Remember brother E who came over a couple of weekends ago because he wanted to learn how to bake a loaf? Well, he’s a fast learner and now he has baked his own Maple Walnut Loaf.
The recipe is (still) a variant of the (now quite popular) basic loaf recipe. A few minor adjustments and a new flavor appears!
The recipe, adjusted
1 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup sugar (reduced from the original 3/4 cup)
1/2 cup neutral cooking oil or melted butter
1 large egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup heavy cream
First, preheat the oven to 325F. Grease, line and re-grease a medium loaf pan.
Mix all the dry ingredients in the mixing bowl. Make a well in the center and add the liquid ingredients. Mix until just combined.
Spoon batter into the prepare loaf pan and bake 35 to 40 minutes. Cover with foil if the top gets too browned. Cool in the pan for about 15 minutes then remove from the pan and cool completely on a wire rack.
