Apple Bread Recipe - 2 loaves
1 Dec 2012 -- Jim and I have been making this treat to much applause, so here it is:
1 c. oil [we use "mild" olive oil]
2 c. sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 cups of apples, diced
1 cup chopped, lightly toasted walnuts
3 cups all-purpose flour [we use white whole wheat]
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
PREHEAT oven to 325 F and grease the bottoms and sides of 2 regular loaf pans.
COMBINE and set aside the oil, eggs, sugar, and vanilla.
SIFT [or not] flour, cinnamon, soda and salt. Mix well.
ADD gradually the dry ingredients to oil mixture.
FOLD IN apples and nuts. Dough will be heavy and stiff.
DIVIDE dough between the 2 loaf pans.
BAKE at 325 degrees F for about 70 min or until a toothpick in the center comes out clean.
COOL in the pans for 10 minutes, then turn out on wire racks.
