The Best Apple Bread Recipe

This is the recipe that I used to make Apple Bread for presents this year. It is incredibly good! I can’t wait for Fall’s abundance of apples so that I can make a bunch of this bread again (it freezes really well too)!

Apple Bread

  • 2 c. sugar
  • 1 c. oil
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 3 c. flour
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 2 tsp. vanilla
  • 3 c. peeled, chopped apples
  • 1 c. chopped nuts (optional)

Beat together sugar, oil and eggs. Sift together flour, salt, cinnamon, and baking soda. Add to liquid mixture. Stir in vanilla, apples and nuts. Pour into two greased loaf pans, or muffin tins. Sprinkle tops with sugar.

Bake in preheated oven at 350* for 1 hour, or until done.

I like to make these as muffins and freeze a bunch of them in a big freezer bag. Makes a great snack to quickly zap in the microwave for the kids!

  1. Just wanted to say this was a big hit for us! My kids and husband devoured it. Will be making more hopefully tomorrow! Thanks and I love your blog.

  2. This bread is soooo good. I have made an apple cake before and it was okay so I thought I would give this apple bread a try. I made two loaves and after an hour I poked a toothpick in and it came out clean. I took them out and let them set for a couple of minutes before I turned them out onto racks. I had about a quarter size piece stick to the bottom and when I turned it, the bread broke in half, which was actually ok (except for the hot molten lava leaking out of it) because there was a little bit that was not finished baking. So I put the other loaf in for a few minutes more and it came out fine. I would recommend baking for probably an hour and 6 or 7 minutes. But definately try this bread. My son says I should make it at least 4 times a month:) And don’t neglect to put the sugar on top. It gives the top of the crust just that little crunchiness that is so tasty. Thanks Kendra for another great recipe. I look forward to seeing what you give us next.
