This yummy apple bread is a treat, and is nice to make year-round. You can make it in the fall when there is a surplus of apples from apple-picking, or in the spring when store-bought apples tend to be overripe – or any other time of year! I love this bread by itself, just as much as other sweets.
My kids pick a lot of apples in the fall, so we are always looking for recipes to use up all those bushels of apples before they go bad.
1 cup vegetable oil**
3 cups flour
2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1+ teaspoons cinnamon
3 cups apples (peeled & chopped)
1 tsp vanilla extract
** Alternately, you can use 1/2 cup oil + 1/2 cup applesauce.
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
Mix the dry ingredients and wet ingredients (minus apples and vanilla) separately. Then combine the two mixtures.
Add in your 3 cups of of chopped apples and vanilla.
Pour into two loaf pans (bake for 1 hour) or four small loaf pans (bake 50 minutes).
