I got the idea from Pinterest, as usual. I really do spend too much time on that website, but I feel like I would be missing out on so much awesomeness if I didn’t. I saw a pin for apple bread and knew I had to try it as soon as possible. I kept forgetting to get apples at the grocery store, though. I would never remember to put them on my list.
I recently went apple picking with my friend Megan, though. I brought home 13 pounds of Jonagold apples. So, the baking commenced. I made three loaves of this apple bread, tweaking the recipe to get it just right.
I still have a bunch of apples left, though. So, be expecting more apple recipes!
1 Cup AP Flour
1/2 Cup Wheat Flour
1/2 tsp Baking Soda
1/2 tsp Salt
2 Cups Apples, Cored and Chopped (I used 2 Large Apples)
1/2 Cup Butter
1/2 Cup Sugar
1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
2 Large Eggs
1 tsp Cinnamon
1 tsp Vanilla
Preheat oven to 350F.
Cream together the butter, sugar, and brown sugar until light and fluffy.
Beat in the eggs and vanilla.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the flours, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon.
Add the dry ingredients to the wet a little at a time, making sure to mix well between each addition.
Fold in the apples.
Pour batter into a sprayed and floured loaf pan.
Bake for 50 minutes to 1 hour. Mine was perfect at 55 minutes.
Let cool, flip from pan, and enjoy.
It’s seriously delicious warm, room temperature, or chilled.
I should note that I used a all purpose flour and whole wheat flour. You could easily just use all ap flour. Also, I baked two loaves at once for the photos. The recipe only makes one loaf, so double it if you want more.
I found that the bread tastes better when the apple pieces are a bit larger; there’s more apple flavor. You can use any type of apple for this; I just like my apples on the tart side.
