I was given this recipe years ago by my friend Debbie. I've had it written down on a torn piece of paper for years and decided today that this recipe needs to be on AllRecipes. It is a moist, sweet, and delicious bread with a crispy crust. By far my favorite bread recipe!

  • Beat eggs, sugar, vegetable oil, and vanilla extract in a mixing bowl; add apples.

  • Mix flour, salt, baking powder, and cinnamon in a separate bowl; add to apple mixture and stir just until evenly combined into a thick batter. Pour batter into the prepared loaf pan.

  • Bake in the preheated oven for 45 minutes. Cover loaf pan with aluminum foil; continue baking until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 15 minutes more. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire rack.

I love this recipe, however, I have to admit, I changed it somewhat. My daughter had made this and said that she had replaced some of the oil with applesauce. One of the other comments said that it was awfully sweet, and I am trying to cut down on fat and sugar, so......I cut the sugar in half (only 1 cup), omitted the oil and put in 1 cup of applesauce. It turned out scrumptious! Read More

Don't know what I did wrong, but this bread would not cook through, even though I followed directions and then cooked for 15 extra minutes! I cut it open anyway to see how it tasted, and it was way to sweet. I will not be making this again. Read More

Really good! Super dense and moist so if you love that type of baked good you will love this. Next time I will add nuts because for me I think it would make it even better. Thanks for sharing!! UPDATE - I tried the bread with the nuts and suprisingly I did not like it as much. Made it a third time adding some raisins and absolutely loved the addition. Also increased the cinnamon to 2 tsp.

Very good -- dense and sweet. I consider it a dessert bread. The changes I made to the recipe was to use 2.5 cups of cubed McIntosh apples to which I added the juice of one lemon. I also added a teaspoon of lemon zest to the dry ingredients. I also used a full teaspoon of ground cinnamon. Read More

I've made this several times for two years now, and each time it gets rave reviews! To add some depth I usually replace 1/2c of the white sugar for 1/2c dark brown sugar, and applesauce in lieu of some vegetable oil. Go generous on the vanilla and extra generous on the cinnamon! It needs an extra 20 minutes to bake, too. Read More

I made this recipe with a few changes. I do not like baking loaves, they never cook in the middle. I put the batter in muffin cups and baked at 350 for 25 minutes. They came out moist and delicious! As others have suggested, I used half granulated sugar and half brown sugar. I also doubled the cinnamon. I also added chopped walnuts. Read More

This recipe was a amazing! The bread came out perfect, with a crispy crust and moist inside. I used red delicious apples, and I doubled the cinnamon, but that was all I changed. Overall great! Read More

I was having lunch with a friend I hadn't seen for a while and wanted to take her something so I whipped this up real quick and took it warm. She said it was the best thing she'd ever put in her mouth! I changed it slightly by using 1 cup brown sugar and 1 cup white sugar. I also used Granny Smith apples mainly because so many reviews said it was too sweet. I sprinkled the top with turbinado sugar before baking. After the suggested baking time, it was still soft in the middle so I turned off the oven and left it for about another 15 minutes. It was fine after that. I will be making this again, this time for me! Read More
