Here's one for my favorite fruit bread. I've been itching to make it again as I had a bumper apple crop this year.

Apple Bread

4 cups apples, peeled, cored and chopped (I didn't peel)
4 large eggs, beaten
1 cup vegetable oil
2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
1 tsp. pure almond extract
2 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. cinnamon
3 c. all purpose flour
2 c. granulated white sugar

Topping:

3/4 cup all purpose flour
1/4 cup granulated white sugar
2 tsp. cinnamon
6 tbsp. butter, room temperature

Preheat oven to 350. Lightly grease two 9x5 inch bread loaf pans and set aside. Chop apples into 1 inch chunks. In a large bowl, beat the eggs with an electric mixer until fluffy. Add the oil and beat until combined. Add the vanilla extract, almond extract, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. Beat until thoroughly mixed. Next, add the flour and sugar and mix on low just to blend. Turn the mixer to high and beat until mixture is smooth. The batter will be very thick. Fold in the chopped apples, mixing by hand so the apples don't get too broken up. Divide the mixture between the two pans. Since the batter is so thick, it is easiest to spoon the batter into the pans. To prepare the topping, combine flour, sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl. Cut the butter into the mixture with a fork until all ingredients are moist and crumbly. If you don't mind a little mess, it is faster to use your hands. Sprinkle equal amounts of topping on each loaf. Bake for about 1 hour on the center rack of the oven. The loaf should feel fairly firm when touched in the middle, or cook an extra 5 minutes. Remove from the oven and place on a cooling rack. Let cool for 5 minutes before removing from the pans. It is easier to slice the bread if you can wait until it is cool.

Oh man,these recipes sound delicious.Thankyou!!

I've got ten pounds of granny smith apples to do something with.

I'm wondering if they are too tart to use in these recipes?
Maybe some extra sugar?

If it was me I wouldn't add more sugar, even though you are using granny smith apples. The apple bread seems to have plenty of sugar to compensate and even tart apples work well with the muffin recipe.

[Wink] excellent.........I was so hoping that would be the answer.
I don't especially like sweets.I love apples though.
Making muffins and fruit breads ahead of time are a great solution for our hurried weekday breakfasts.
Maybe some nuts added in too.

[wayey] thanks

I bake my apples..
I don't really have a recipe..
**I am so bad with recipes.**

I core the apples out, put them in a pyrex/glass baking dish...

Put in brown sugar, raisins', shake on some cinnamin, and dollops of butter...
*a tiny bit of water, but not much to make a juice like, the apples will secrete some juices' too*

Bake at I have not a clue, 350*...I think.. [Embarrassed]
I am so bad, I just set the knob and it's just
habit...

by weezie13 on October 26, 2005 09:05 AM
Probably 30~40 minutes..

Alot would depend on type of apple..

And the size of apple..

And how soft you like your apples...

I like them soft.. so I might leave them
in a little bit longer...
And I like to make alot of juice too...yummy!!!

And the smell in the house from them baking, Mmm!!!

Weezie...add a dash of ground cloves to your baked apples next time...it is really GOOD!!!
Also, for easy baked apples ...buy prepared puff pastry and fix your apples as Weezie does to bake them...but wrap in the puff pastry...I also add a bit of lemon juice.

Paper Bag Apple Pie

1 unbaked 9in pie shell
5 to 6 large baking apples
3/4 cup of sugar
2 tablespoons of flour
1/2 tsp nutmeg
2 Tbsp lemon juice

Topping

1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup butter

Pare, core and quarter apples, then half each quarter crosswise to make chunks..(should make about 7 cups). Place apples in a large bowl and coat with 3/4 cup of sugar, 2Tbsp flour and nutmeg; spoon into pastry shell and drizzle with lemon juice.
For the topping, combine 1/2 cup sugar and 1/2 cup flour in a small bowl. Cut in butter; sprinkle over apples to cover top.
Slide pie into a heavy brown paper bag large enough to cover pie loosely. Fold open end of bag over twice and fasten with paper clips or staple; place on a large cookie sheet for easy handling.
Bake in a 425-degree oven for 1 hour. When done, split the bag open and remove pie; apples will be tender and top golden.
Cool on a wire rack.

This a great apple pie...it always reminds me of my grandfather...he always cooked our holiday hams in a brown paper bag.

I like the waldorf salads, apple dressing with any pork dish and dried apple chips. But I am one of those that do a little bit of this and a little bit of that so I don't have recipies. Maybe someone can help me out here?

I found a good easy recipe that uses 6 pounds of apples. I had a bunch of apples that were wrinkling so I needed to use them fast. I think because they were wrinkled and drying, I ended up with 5 pints instead of 2 after 2 1/2 hours, so I added more spices at the end to make up the difference. The apples were plenty sweet, though, so I didn't need to add any more sugar.

Apple Butter with allspice:
