Crabapple Success

I used some of the cooked crabapples in apple bread yesterday and the results were really good. I had initially added 1 cup of sugar to about 6 quarts of spiced crapapple butter. I personally thought they were still pretty tart, bordering on sour, although my son loved it.

The apple bread recipe I used called for 1 cup of sugar per loaf. Generally, I think that makes a loaf that is too sweet but in this case the proportions were just right. I'm excited about future crapapple endevours!

Sounds like a great use for those crabapples. For less sweet vegan breads, have you ever checked out Jan's quick breads? The only change I make to them is reducing the salt, baking powder, and baking soda by about a third.

Thanks for the link, I hadn't seen those recipes before.
