Apple Bread


This bread tastes like autumn. Made from the apples we picked at our local orchard, its warm, homey flavor perfectly exemplifies the season. It’s a wonderful breakfast to wake up to, but also makes an excellent dessert.  Enjoy!


  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1 stick butter
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar plus 1 teaspoon for dusting
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup chopped nuts
  • 2 cups chopped apple
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon


Mix sugar, butter, eggs and vanilla.  Stir in flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt and mix until smooth.  Add apples and nuts.  Pour into a greased and floured pan.  In a small bowl, mix the brown sugar and cinnamon, then dust over the top of the bread.  Bake at 350 degrees for 50 to 60 minutes.  Allow to cool before slicing.
