Apple Bread – When I say “super moist,” I really mean it! The best any kind of homemade sweet bread I’ve ever tasted. We were home in Indiana for a wedding last month and had a ton of fun visiting with all sides of our family. We were sitting around the kitchen table at the home of one of my sisters-in-law, Carol, and somehow got on the subject of banana bread or apple butter or something. I don’t recall what, but Carol (Jimmie’s oldest sister) said her apple bread is her most requested recipe.
I asked for it, and as luck would have it, she already had it typed up and ready to hand to those who ask her for it. If that many people ask for it, it must be the bee’s knees 🐝 and cat’s meow 🐱! And it is!
Super Moist Apple Bread
I bought a 6 lb. bag of apples a couple of weeks ago to make another batch of Old Fashioned Apple Butter (posting on 11/16/2016). I waited too long to get on it, though, and by the time I was ready, there weren’t enough apples left. But that was a good thing! It means my guys were eating fresh fruit and I didn’t even have to nag nag nag to get them to do it. 😋 I had just enough left to make my Easy Apple Pie (posting on 11/19/2016) and Carol’s Super Moist Apple Bread. I can call it that because it really is super moist! I slathered on a bit of butter and mmm’d my way through a warm piece straight from the oven. Yum!
This recipe makes two loaves. The only thing I did was sprinkle cinnamon/sugar on top of one loaf before baking just to see how it would taste. Super delish! But the plain loaf is super delish, too!
These are the instructions as written by Carol:

In conclusion, buying the right kind of apples for different recipes might be a good idea. Though I’ always use whatever I have on hand. Not sure what kind of apples are best for baking? Here’s the lowdown. So, this fall when apples are on sale, grab a big bag and get busy making your house smell like a fabulous bakery!
