Hello friends– I’ve got the end of a loaf of this yummy bread tucked in the fridge–saving the last few slices for Ani, when she pops in for the long weekend. I’ve been eating if for years, ever since my mom was making it for me. It’s homey and not too sweet, not much fat, but apple-y and nutty. My favorite way to eat it is toasted in the morning with butter and a mug of tea.
MOM’S APPLE NUT BREAD
1/4 cup canola oil
2/3 cup sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
2 cups flour
2 large apples, peeled, cored & grated
1 cup nuts (pecans or walnuts), chopped
Beat together the oil, sugar and eggs. Then stir in the baking powder, salt and flour. Finally mix in the apple and nuts. Spoon into 2 smaller bread pans or one standard 8″x4″x4″ pan that have been sprayed with cooking spray. Bake it up at 350 degrees for 45 -50 minutes (a bit more for the larger pan) until the bread is firm to the touch and a lovely brown on top. Pretty simple!
P.S.– If you wants Larry’s version of how to eat this bread–toast it and spread on a layer of vanilla ice cream. It did look good.
