  • In a medium bowl, use a potato masher to break up apples in the filling; set aside. In a large mixing bowl, cream together butter, white sugar, and brown sugar. Stir in eggs, apples, and vanilla extract until well blended. Sift together flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. Stir into apple mixture, then stir in raisins and walnuts. Pour batter into prepared pan.

  • Bake in preheated oven for 60 minute, until a toothpick inserted into center of the loaf comes out clean. Let bread cool in pan for 15 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack to cool completely.

very yummy bread. I found though that I had to put some of the batter into another pan because it was more than my bread pan would hold. I will for sure be making this again! Read More

The baking time for this is wrong. I baked it for an hour(as told) and it was not done. Had to bake it another 45 minutes was very dry but done. If I make this again I will split it into two baking pans. Read More

Very yummy and super easy to make! It's very moist and I even slice it up for a quick toast before eating! Read More

This was really good. I followed the recipe exactly as it was written. It was so easy to make and came out super moist. My whole family loved it. I placed it in a 9X13 inch pan and it only took 30 min. to cook. The raisins were a great addition (I soaked them in warm water for about 5 minutes before I added them.) But I think cranberries would be a great also. Read More

My family had gotten tired of my Banana Bread IV (from this site) so I made this... I've been asked to make this over and over. With the nuts (I used pecans) and raisins and small bits of apples throughout the bread its a great dessert bread or as toast for breakfast. Thanks for posting!!! Read More

This was big enough to spread into a 9x13 baking dish! I used apple pie spice added two small drained cups of diced apples and omitted the raisins. I think I might frost this with the Caramel Frosting from this site but I'm not sure if that'll be overkill. Smells divine. EDITED TO ADD: Meh. Seems to be lacking IMO. Read More

I used 1/2 cup butter for less liquid-still doughy and NO flavor. I doubt I will try this recipe again. Sorry Amber. Read More

Really good flavor but cooking it for a hour did not do the trick. The loaf was really heavy and still gooey inside. Next time I will split the batter between two smaller pans or something. It needs a longer cooking time. update: take a good look at the picture that goes with this recipe- it isn't a loaf pan. It is a 9x13 casserole dish. That is what makes the recipe go from thick gooey mess to an actually edible bread. spray a 9x13 casserole spread the batter in and bake- beginning to check after 50 minutes just to be safe.

Very minor alterations the first being a loose 1/2 cup of brown sugar rather than packed (I ran out). Also I added a dash allspice nutmeg and cloves. I also used dried cranberries rather than raisins. It smells SO good while it's baking! Read More
