Fresh Apple Bread

Comment on this recipe

Everyone tells me this is the best bread they ever ate, even better than banana nut bread.

Ingredients

3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1-1/2 cups vegetable oil
3 large eggs
2 cups sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
3 cups apples, diced
1 cup walnuts, chopped (optional)
1 teaspoon cinnamon

Instructions

Sift flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon in bowl. Set aside. Mix vegetable oil, eggs, sugar and vanilla together. Stir into flour mixture. Mix (by hand) apples and nuts until blended. Batter will be very thick and heavy. Pour batter into 2 well greased 9x5-inch bread loaf pans. Bake at 325 degrees for one hour. Cool bread in pans on wire rack 10 minutes and unmold. Serve warm with butter or plain. Wrap and store in aluminum foil. Can also freeze loaves in aluminum foil.
