Apple Bread

This time of year always makes me think of the Apple Festival in Ellijay, GA. Here is a moist apple bread that will disappear fast. Try it for breakfast spread with homemade apple butter.

Apple Bread


3 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups coarsely chopped peeled apples
1 cup broken walnuts


In bowl, combine the flour, sugar, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder and salt; set aside. Combine the eggs, oil, vanilla and apples. Stir into flour mixture. Fold in the walnuts.
Pour into two greased 8-in. x 4-in. loaf pans. Bake at 350° for 40-45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks to cool. Yield: 2 loaves
