Awesome Apple Bread

I decided to try this recipe for two reasons:
1) I have received Recipe Exchange emails from a couple friends, so wanted something fall-ish to share.
2) I wanted to bring something breakfast-y/snack-y to my aunt’s house for Thanksgiving.

I found this recipe on, and tweaked it a bit based on some of the comments, and I think it turned out great! It was easy to put together; I definitely plan on making this again. I also want to try a healthier version with whole wheat flour, lower fat, etc… but here’s the buttery, sugary, real deal (at least there’s fruit, right?)

Awesome Apple Bread
1/2 cup oil
1/2 cup unsalted butter (room temp.)
3 eggs
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 tsp. vanilla
4 cups apples, peeled and diced
3 cups flour
1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1 cup chopped nuts (optional, and I opted out)

Combine and set aside the oil, eggs, sugar, brown sugar, and vanilla. Sift flour, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt. Add dry ingredients to oil mixture gradually. Add apples and nuts. Bake in two regular loaf pans or three foil loaf pans for 90 minutes at 300 degrees Fahrenheit. Cool 10 minutes in pan. Sprinkle with sugar, if desired.

Here are a few photos of my process:
