Apple Bread

Image may contain: 1 person, plant, child, outdoor and natureAre you noticing a trend in my recipes the last few days?  Apples Image may contain: 1 person, eyeglasses and outdooranyone? I already made Apple Scones and Apple Hummus. We went apple picking last weekend and I have lots of apples still.  I think Colby picked enough to fill a whole 1/2 peck by himself. The boys love apples, but there are only so many raw apples you can eat in a week. So apple baking is in process.

Today I decided to make apple bread. I searched for an apple bread recipe and found Debbie’s Amazing Apple Bread on Allrecipes.com. It looked good, so I figured…. why not?P1070208

I didn’t make many changes to the recipe. I used less sugar. I used 1/2 c. of brown sugar and 1/2 c of white sugar. I also increased the cinnamon to a full tsp. I found the flavor to be strong enough without the extra sugar.

This bread has a great texture and the taste is very apple forward. I think next time I’ll bump up the cinnamon even more, it can handle it. It was great with a cup of hot chocolate as a nice afternoon snack. I know I’ll be having another slice tomorrow for breakfast. I think it is a successful use of our apples.

“I was given this recipe years ago by my friend Debbie. I’ve had it written down on a torn piece of paper for years and decided today that this recipe needs to be on AllRecipes. It is a moist, sweet, and delicious bread with a crispy crust. By far my favorite bread recipe!”

Ingredients

  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups white sugar
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups apples, peeled and diced
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon, or more to taste

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a loaf pan.
  2. Beat eggs, sugar, vegetable oil, and vanilla extract in a mixing bowl; add apples.
  3. Mix flour, salt, baking powder, and cinnamon in a separate bowl; add to apple mixture and stir just until evenly combined into a thick batter. Pour batter into the prepared loaf pan.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven for 45 minutes. Cover loaf pan with aluminum foil; continue baking until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 15 minutes more. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire rack.
