Apple Walnut Bread is Delicious and Easy to Make
We often make this apple walnut bread in late summer and fall after we go apple picking, but it's an easy-to-make treat that's delicious at any time of year. Fresh-baked apple walnut bread is a great way to use up any extra apples you might have, and it also makes the house smell amazing while it's baking.
It's good as part of breakfast, as a snack, or even dessert. My kids love to get a slice in their lunchboxes, too.
- 1-1/2 cups peeled, cored, and chopped apples
- 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1 cups granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup vegetable oil
- 2 eggs
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- brown sugar for topping (optional)
Combine the apples, flour, baking soda, baking powder, walnuts, salt, sugar, oil, eggs, vanilla, and cinnamon in a large mixing bowl and beat on low speed with a hand mixer for 1 minute. Increase the speed to medium and beat for another minute, making sure to scrape down the sides of the bowl.
Preheat your oven to 325ºF. Pour batter into a greased loaf pan, sprinkle the top with brown sugar (optional), and bake for 1 hour. Cool for 10 minutes, remove bread from pan, then cool completely on a wire rack before slicing.
