Apple Loaf

"This is the best apple bread I've tried! It's moist and delicious. This also works well using Egg Beaters and unsweetened applesauce in place of half the butter or margarine."

  1. I made this recipe with peaches instead of apples and it was amazing.
  2. I followed Kree's instructions exactly and ended up with a golden loaf of scrumptious apple bread. I served this as a dessert tonight, along with Dee514's [recipe=67382]Cinnamon Ice Cream (for electric ice cream machine) #67382[/recipe] It was like a summertime apple pie, it was great! My family loved it. Thanks Kree, great recipe and I'll be doing it again!
  3. Wow Kree! This was absolutely delicious! I didn't change a thing and the result was a beautiful, moist loaf of apple bread which I couldn't wait to let cool before tasting!! This will definitely be made again (and again, and again) in our house. Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe, Kree!
  4. Fantastic apple loaf! I'm not a big fan of peeling and coring apples but this loaf was worth every bit of effort. I found it fast and easy to make...I managed to chase a 1 yr old around while being 7 months pregnant and easily make 2 of these loaves. Next time I make it I think I'll try glazing the top with apple juice for the last 5-10 minutes of cooking time....mmmmmmmm.
  5. MAde this this evening sans nuts (1 kiddo doesn't like them). We used around 1 1/2 c apples (maybe more) and added 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon - could have used more. Very tasty.

I'm a real estate agent in the lovely city of Rochester, New York. That's not what I expected to do with my life. I got my bachelor's in psychology, my masters in literacy education, and I taught high school special education for two years. Then I discovered that helping people find the homes of their dreams was my real passion. I've been doing it for over two years now and still absolutely love my career. Other than that, I have a very spoiled Border Collie mix named Bear that I adopted from a local shelter in spring '08. He's gorgeous and fun and brings me great joy. Now if only I could find a man like that... LOL!
