Apple Bread

Good afternoon bloggers! Welcome to another entry to The Tasteful Texan. Today we will be baking a delicious treat inspired by my work week. Let me explain. I am a home health aide. I also work with my younger sister. Our client LOVES baking, so much so that a few days ago, we spent the entire day baking banana bread. It smelled Heavenly in the house. I kid you not, we spent the ENTIRE day baking. We had over a dozen banana nut muffins, and over a dozen banana chocolate chip muffins. We also had 5 loaves of the banana chocolate chip. Needless to say, they tasted amazing!

This all inspired me to want to make something similar, but different in taste, thus why I chose apple bread. Now, I won't lie and say that I've ever had apple bread before because frankly, I have not. I imagine it would taste similar to apple pie? If not, I'm about to find out with the rest of you exactly what it tastes like. Grab those aprons and baking pans, and I'll meet you all in the kitchen!

  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2/3 cup cooking oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla


  1. Grease and flour two 8x4x2-inch baking pans. 
  2. In a medium bowl combine flour, soda, salt, cinnamon, and baking powder; set aside.
  3. In a large bowl combine eggs, apples, sugar, oil, and vanilla. 
  4. Stir in flour mixture just until moistened. 
  5. Pour batter into prepared pans.

So the verdict? This bread is fruity, moist, and delicious! If you are trying this recipe for the first time, or even the 7 billionth time, feel free to leave a comment letting me know what you think of this recipe. For now, I'm off to spend the day with my family, but I'll be back very soon with another recipe, perhaps a dinner recipe this time. Who knows? Until then, happy blogging, and I'll catch y'all on the flip side!
