Apple Loaf

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.

Apple Loaf

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
4 eggs
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.
