Apple Bread

Updated: Nov 17, 2019


Generally, my family doesn't have much of a sweet tooth, so when I feel like baking, it's generally a quick bread or muffins. Even then, I usually end up more than my share. Though when I whipped up this delicious Apple Bread, everyone loved it. Not too sweet but sweet enough, scented with apple pie spice and made up of a combination of apples and applesauce, this bread is a winner. I think this bread would also make great hostess gifts around the holidays. Give it a try, and I bet you'll love it.


Ingredients for Apple Bread:

makes 2 8"x 4" loaves


3 1/2 cups flour

2 cups granulated sugar

1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

2 teaspoons baking soda

1 1/2 teaspoons apple pie spice

1 teaspoon salt

1 cup unsweetened applesauce

1 cup canola oil

4 eggs

1 granny smith apple, peeled, cored, and chopped

1 cup chopped walnuts

2 tablespoons of raw sugar


Time-Saving Tip: This bread can be made ahead and frozen.


Let's see what we need.


We're ready to bake.


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and coat pans well with cooking spray; set aside.











Combine the applesauce, vanilla, oil, and eggs in a bowl; set aside.


In another bowl, combine the sugar, flour, baking powder, baking soda, apple pie spice, and salt. Once combined, add the diced apple and walnuts to the flour mixture.


Now add the wet mixture to the bowl with the dry ingredients. Stir just until combined. Divide between the two prepared pans; sprinkle each loaf with one tablespoon of raw sugar. Bake for about an hour; at 50 minutes, pierce the middle of each bread with a toothpick to see if they are ready. If the toothpick comes out wet, they need to bake longer. Try not to over bake, or else they will be dry.


After taking them out of the oven, cool for about 10 minutes and then remove from the pan. Don't they look fantastic?


It's ready! Apple Bread is perfect for the fall season but is delicious all year round. It's great on it's own or slathered with butter.


Enjoy!
