It’s apple season people! I guess you already knew this. I made this apple loaf in 3 mini loaves instead, if you do this make sure to check it periodically. I also used some Trader Joe’s Cinnamon Sugar on the top before baking. What I like about this loaf is that it is not too sweet.
Makes 1 Loaf
2 tart apples, peeled and cut into 1/4-inch pieces (3 cups)
3 Tbs plus 1 cup sugar, divided
1 tsp cinnamon
2/3 cup butter, softened
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups flour
1/8 tsp salt
Preheat oven 350*.
In a large bowl, combine the apples, 3 tablespoons sugar and the cinnamon. Let stand for one hour to get the juices out.
In a separate bowl, cream butter and remaining sugar. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Then add the vanilla.
In a different bowl, combine flour and salt; slowly add to creamed mixture and beat until smooth. Then fold in the apples.
Transfer to a greased 9-in. x 5-in. loaf pan.
Bake at 350° for about an 1 hour or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes on a wire rack. Run a knife along the outside edge and then invert onto a wire rack. Serve warm.
