Apple Bread

It’s that time of year – time to head to the apple orchard, pick apples and enjoy all the recipes that are available right now. We are blessed to have many apple orchards here in Northwest Indiana and they are ready for picking.

Last year we shared a few recipes for Apple Week and had such a good time, we thought we would expand it a few more days and also share recipes on Pocket Change Gourmet.

This Apple Bread boasts all the flavors of Fall with delicious Fuji apples and apple pie spice.

Quick bread is definitely some of the easiest bread you can make. Typically the bread goes together in minutes and has many different flavors, a couple of my favorites are Pumpkin Bread and Zucchini Bread, I have made both many, many times and we love them.

  5. Amy says:

    I have just started baking and I am not sure exactly what Fuji Apples are and where I can find them. If I cant find them, can I substitute a different type of apple? I am anxious to try this recipe this weekend and I want to make sure I do it right if I have to substitute anything. Thanks for the great inspiration for this baking newbie!!!!!

  6. Barb says:

    Thanks for the recipe. I only have 1 bread pan so I used it and my Pampered Chef Brownie pan and filled the cups 3/4 full and baked for 25 minutes.

  7. Amanda says:

    I baked this exactly as directed as far as I can tell… the first loaf I did for 40 minutes, checked it, and let it cook another 15 minutes. The second I set for 50 minutes and it still didn’t seem done so I let it go another 10 after that… The first one is very gooey but the second one almost seemed burnt on the outside… but neither one looked like a real loaf of bread. Maybe I used too much apples? I tasted them both and they both taste great, they just don’t seem like a bread. But this seems to happen any time I try to bake a quick bread… they never come out right! Any tips?

  8. Julie says:

    I want to try to make these as muffins. Suggestions on cooking temperature? Time?

  9. Karen says:

    I just mixed this up and it’s VERY thick, the recipe says to pour batter into pans but it cannot be poured. I had to spoon it in. Is it supposed to be this thick??

    • Liz says:

      Hi Karen, the batter will be thick because of the apples, honestly I don’t remember it being very thick though. You can certainly divide the batter the best way for you.
      If your batter is extremely thick, you may need to adjust the baking time, because it would make the bread very dense.
      Happy Baking!

  10. Cristal says:

    Advice…I made this bread this morning. Like the comment above my bread was extremely thick. I baked both pans for 50 minutes. One pan was done, the other wasn’t so I kept it in a few minutes more. Both breads completely sank in the middle…Any advice as to why this happened?

    • Liz says:

      Hi Cristal, sorry that happened. Sometimes apples have a lot of water or liquid which can effect the batter. It seems like perhaps I need to bake this bread again and see what happens.
