Apple Bread

Recipe by WI Cheesehead
READY IN: 1hr 20mins
YIELD: 2 loaves




  • Preheat oven to 350°. Lightly grease two 9x5" bread loaf pans and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, beat the eggs with an electric mixer until fluffy. Add the oil and beat until combined.
  • Add the vanilla, almond, baking soda, salt and 2 teaspoons cinnamon. Beat until thoroughly mixed.
  • Next, add the 3 cups flour and 2 cups sugar on low just to blend. Turn the mixer to high and beat until mix is smooth. The batter will be very thick.
  • Fold in the chopped apples, mixing by hand so the apples do not get too broken up.
  • Divide the mix between two pans. Since the batter is so thick, it is easiest to spoon the batter into the pans.
  • To prepare the topping, combine the 3/4 cup flour, 1/4 cup sugar and 2 teaspoons cinnamon in a small bowl.
  • Cut the butter into the mix with a fork (or your hands) until all ingredients are moist and crumbly.
  • Sprinkle equal amounts of topping on each loaf.
  • Bake for about 1 hour on the center rack of the oven. The loaf should feel fairly firm when touched in the middle, or cook an extra 5 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and place on a cooling rack. Let cool 5 minutes before removing from the pans.
  • It is easier to slice the bread if you can wait until it is cooled. Makes 2 loaves.
