I found this recipe in a cookbook I had purchased in a group of books I had bought after reading a few books about the Amish lifestyle. The Amish cooked just about every thing from scratch and this led me to ordering an Amish cookbook. That is where I found the recipe for Amish Apple Bread. It also serves up good as a coffee cake and we often fix it and serve it for a fast breakfast.
I had never really thought of making apple bread before. However, this cooks up delicious and is a great way to use up the last one or two apples you bought that has been sitting in the fruit bowl a couple of days. That is when I usually whip up a batch of apple bread.
This recipe calls for one cup of chopped up apples but I have made it with two apples before and it came out just fine. It is easy to make and only takes 45 minutes to bake in the oven.
I’m not sure who started the ABC Desserts Challenge but after reading CarolDM’s article on Devil’s Food Cake, I thought it would be fun! Won’t you join us?
Have you ever eaten a homemade apple bread or coffee cake? Did you like it?
The photo above is my own. It is a photo of blackberry bread using the same recipe just substituted a different fruit.
