Recipe: Apple Bread

This time of year there is an abundance of apples… crisp fresh tasting apples… and nothing can satisfy more than the clean taste of an apple. There are so many things you can make with apples… and apple bread is one of them.

It goes together quickly and while it bakes…it fills the house with a wonderful aroma… gives the house a homey autumn feel … one of my favorite things.


Use whatever apples you prefer… Granny Smith apples make wonderful bread.

The amount of chopped apple is approximate… 2 large apples should make a good amount for the bread…

I rough chopped the apples this time… but sometimes I like to grate the apple… or chop it very finely… try it either way.

The batter will be extremely thick… it will bake fine.

I hope you try this recipe!
