A perfect bread made with apples

I am blessed with 2 apple trees, one for making applesauce and one for eating and making pies,etc. A cherry tree , a plumb tree and a pear tree.They produced very nicely this year and I have been baking and canning like an old fool (hate to waste) and give most of it away too. However I came across this recipe a friend gave me, that her mom used to make and is very quick and easy and delicious so I wanted to pass it on...

Prep time is 20 min. Cook time is 40 min.

3 cups all purpose flour

2 cups sugar

2 teas. cinnamon

2 eggs

1 teas. baking soda

1/2 teas.Vanilla extract

1/2 teas. baking powder

2 + cups apples peeled & cored & sliced

1/2 teas. salt

1 cup broken , walnuts

1/2 cup vegie oil

Add dry ingreid.... In a bowl, combine flour, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder and salt; set aside. In a large mixing bowl, place oil, sugar. eggs, vanilla and apples (I used Green Jonathans). mix together and add the flour mixture. Add nuts. Divide mixture into 2 greased bread pans (or I do 4 small bread pans). Bake at 350 degrees for 40-45 min. or till bread tests done. cool for 10 min. on a wire rack. :o)Hugs G-Ma

There was a time, when I would make a loaf of bread every time I had a client in to the office. Naturally this fresh bread was served up with Frank's Famous Farmalade

Never made it with apples though. will give it a try. You should have seen the first loaf of bread I made. Sons kicked it around the backyard like a soccer ball.

Lately I've taken to cooking (only for my family) and I think I'm getting to enjoy it because they do. I've not baked a thing yet. This looks a nice simple recipe with which to start so I'll give it a shot. Unlike the way I assemble new furniture, or a new toy (in the past), I'll read the instructions.

MrMarmalade above - ouch! That's why I cook only for my family.

G-Ma: Great timing!! I'm going to make this bread over the weekend because I just went yesterday to a farm stand and stocked up on a bunch of apples. Any particular kind of apples the best for this?

PenmanZee..Thanks for your sweet comment, and am glad to hear you are giving cooking a try. Most men (in my experiences anyway) that turn to cooking are really quite good at it..It is rewarding and don't give up if a few don't turn out so good. we've all been there believe me :O) LOL

As for baking this is a very simple one to mix and to bake..Let me know how it turns out OK?...G-Ma :o) hugs

Hi my Angel..well this is much like that apple cake recipe...remember that one? And if you use a bit more then 2 cups of apples it is even better...It actually only took 4-5 medium apples for this recipe...and of course I used all oragnic ingredients and made 8 small loaves...try it I think you'll like it...Thanks for commenting on your Grandmother's hub..I Love You Stacie...G-Ma :o) hugs

This sounds very good G-Ma, as usual. I am saving it in my favorites for use when I am not working...lol

Do you have an easy recipe for apple crisp? I love it, but have never found a good recipe for it.

Hugs, Carol

Thanks, G-Ma.  This recipe looks like it's going to be a hit around my house.  There's just nothing like the smell of apples cooking in the fall.  I'm guessing you could slice and freeze the bread for spreading with butter and toasting later?

G-Ma Johnson 8 years ago from NW in the land of the Free Author

Sally...yes my dear is really good warmed with butter ymmm..and freezes well and I wrap and give as gifts...will freeze well till Christmas time...if it lasts that long..but no need to pre-slice...Thanks for your comment and do enjoy...G-Ma :o) hugs

Carol sweetie...all I do for apple crisp is mix brown sugar, cinnamon,plain oatmeal and butter together till crumbly and put on top of the sliced apples..I assume you have the recipe for doing the apples? just peel cut and core...add abit of sugar and butter to the top when in pie dish...and a tbls. of flour mixed with the apples..then the crisp and bake for about 30-35 minutes at 425. Hope that's what you wanted...??LOL G-Ma :o) hugs

In Spain we used tomake apple bread, and in my restaurant when we wanted to substitute for oils in our bread we used apple sauce and even beer.  People loved it!

Great hub and great message for all the cooks of the world!
