A couple of days ago, the girls and I took a dear friend out to pick apples at my grandparent's old farm. We picked a big basket full of beautiful, tart, green apples. I plan to make some applesauce, but sweet apple bread was calling my name :)
One of my favorite resources for tried and true recipes is Jenny Hobick's blog, Everyday Occasions. I have been following her blog for years and every recipe turns out so good! I made a couple of modifications to her recipe....I only had 1 cup of granulated sugar so I used 1 cup of brown sugar and 1 cup of granulated, and I baked my bread for longer!
4 small or 2 large loafs
2 cups Sugar (or 1 cup Brown Sugar and 1 cup Sugar)
1 stick of Butter (melted)
2 teaspoons Vanilla
2 Apples, peeled and diced
2 cups Flour
1 teaspoon Salt
1 teaspoon Baking Powder
1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare loaf pans by lining them with parchment paper, or greasing with butter.
In a mixer, combine eggs, sugar, butter and vanilla. In a separate bowl, stir together flour, salt, baking powder and cinnamon. Add flour mixture into the butter and sugar mixture slowly. Add apples in and stir just until combined.
Pour batter in the pans.
Bake for 30 minutes, or until tester comes out clean. Cool in pan for 15-20 minutes, then move to wire rack.
I love that it makes 2 large loafs, 1 to enjoy warm out of the oven and the other to give away!
This is the best sweet bread I have had in a while, it's so good and so easy!!!!! The perfect after school snack or lazy Saturday morning breakfast bread :)
