Apple Walnut Bread

It’s my favorite time of year! Apple season.

apple bread 001

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 3/4 cup applesauce
  • 3/4 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 apple, peeled and finely diced

Preheat the oven to 350ºF.  Grease a bread pan (I like to use the butter wrapper for this job).  Cream the shortening and sugar, then mix in the eggs and vanilla.  Add flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and nutmeg, and blend well.  Stir in the applesauce, nuts and apples.  Spread into the pan and bake 50-60 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
