Apple Bread Recipe

Friday, October 20, 2017

The kids and I have been staying in Maysville this week since I had work Wednesday, then my nephew's Senior Night this evening, plus a few other things I need to be in town to attend this weekend. So I took over my mom's kitchen to prepare this recipe since it's one of my fall favorites.

 If you could actually taste the fall season, I'm pretty sure it would taste exactly like this apple bread. And the scent it will fill your kitchen with as it bakes is just heavenly! This recipe will yield two loaves of bread, which is perfect if you want to keep one for yourself and give one away, or if you're planning to have company and need some extra on hand, because it really is that good. It would be great served warm with some ice cream, as well. Or if you really want to go over the top, slice it right out of the oven and slather on some apple butter.  It just sounds sinful, but honestly, it's delicious just on it's own.


1 cup oil  (you can also substitute unsweetened applesauce)
3 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
3 cups all purpose flour
3 cups peeled, diced apples (I use Granny Smith) 
1 cup chopped walnuts (optional) 

In a large bowl, combine the oil, eggs, sugar and vanilla, then set aside. In a separate bowl, combine the dry ingredients (flour, salt, cinnamon, baking soda). Sift your dry ingredients into the wet ingredient bowl and mix well. Gently fold the apples into this mixture, then fold in walnuts if using (I did not use them this time).  Divide batter evenly into two loaf pans and bake at 300 degrees for 90 minutes.  Let cool for 10 minutes before serving. 

I sort of did a no no and baked one loaf in a glass dish and the other in a metal dish. I know a lot of times, the baking temperature will differ for glass dishes vs non-glass, but I did these together and they turned out well.
