Chunky Apple Bread

READY IN: 1hr 30mins
Recipe by John W Wenzelburger

This is from the January 2002 Quick Cooking magazine. It was sent in by Joan Hallford, N. Richland Hills Texas. I have made it several times and really like it. The bread is fantastic toasted with butter. It makes two small loafs so I freeze one. There was an Editor’s note that fat free Mayonnaise should not be used. One teaspoon vinegar in regular milk replaces the buttermilk.

John, I have this same recipe, posted elsewhere online. We enjoy it ever so much here in the Northeast during the fall apple harvest. I want to suggest, however, to your readers, that some ovens need to have a lower temp. for this bread as it will burn on the outside (and still be beautiful on the inside.) I have a propane oven and its been necessary for me to lower the temp to 350. Absolutely yummy bread. Doesn't last a day at my house! Thanks!
