Apple Loaf

Apple Loaf

With a large abundance of apples available all year round, here is a recipe for Apple Loaf that is tender and has a delicate apple flavor. Walnuts add a nice crunch, but can be left out for those who are allergic to, or just not fond of nuts.

Ingredients

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
1/2 cup softened butter
1 cup white sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 cup apples, peeled, cored and shredded

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9x5 inch loaf pan.

Mix together flour, baking powder, soda, salt and nuts.

In a large bowl, beat butter, sugar and 1 egg until smooth. Beat in second egg, and stir in vanilla.

Gently stir in shredded apples.

Pour flour mixture into batter; stir just until moistened. Spread into prepared pan.

Bake for 50 to 60 minutes, or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean. Let stand 10 minutes, then remove from pan. Place on a rack to cool.

Recipe Note

Walnuts add a nice crunch, but can be left out for those who are allergic to, or just not fond of nuts.
