Apple Bread

Simple, easy and creative recipes and projects delivered straight to your inbox.

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.

    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?

    I found this recipe through Pinterest and am very excited to try it! In the past, particularly with brownie recipes, I’ve replaced oil with the same amount of apple sauce to make my baked goods a little healthier. Does anyone know if that would work with this recipe as well? I’ve never made a quick bread so I’m not sure if it would turn out differently!
