Apple Cinnamon Bread

I bought some really delicious organic baby fuji apples from the farmer's market over the weekend and my mind started rolling as to what I can make with them. Was I going go to the tart, cake, dessert, bread route? I went for the bread route. So I decided on a simple apple cinnamon bread.

I followed a simple banana bread recipe and just replace a few ingredients here and there. Like the banana and nuts. I peeled and chopped the apples and made the batter. Here's a cool little tip when working with apples. To keep them from browning, soak them in some water spiked with a little vinegar. Neat, eh?

Mixed the apples into the batter and poured it into a loaf pan. Sprinkled a good amount of oats on top. Baked it for close to 60 minutes on a 350˚F oven. The end result was a moist and chewy. You can definitely taste the apple and cinnamon. Perfect to have for breakfast or as a snack. Check out those little apple bits.

Makes 1 loaf

Apple Cinnamon Bread

4 baby fuji apples or 2 recular sized fuji apples - peeled, cored and chopped
1/2 c rolled oats
1 c sugar
2 c flour
1/2 c unsalted butter or margerine - softened
2 eggs
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 Tbsp ground cinnamon

note: to keep the apples from browning after peeling, soak them in some water spiked with vinegar.

Preheat your oven to 350˚F

Sift together flour, salt, baking soda, and cinnamon.

Cream together butter and sugar.

Beat in each egg, mixing after each one. Mix in the flour mixture.

Drain the apples from the water and add into the batter, mixing well.

Pour the batter into a greased loaf pan.

Bake for 50-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
