Apple Bread Recipe ~

apple bread

Upon my son’s request, I baked another loaf of apple bread for breakfast this morning. Here’s the recipe I promised you last week:

Apple Bread

½ stick butter (room temperature)
½ cup white sugar
½ cup brown sugar
2 eggs
2 cups of all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
½ teaspoon ground cloves
1-2 tbs of oil
2 apples grated (allowing juice to drip into batter)

Preheat oven 350 degrees
Grease loaf pan
In a bowl, mix together butter, sugars until smooth, then beat in eggs

In a separate bowl, sift together flour, soda, salt, cinnamon and cloves
Mix into butter/sugar mixture until smooth
Mix in oil
Grate apples into batter (allowing juice to drip into batter)
Pour into prepared loaf pan

Bake 45-60 minutes until inserted toothpick or fork comes out clean.
Cool in pan for 15 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
