Warm Apple-nut Cinnamon Bread

Warm apple cinnamon bread is the best!

The smell of fresh apple bread is one of the most comforting to me..especially since I have been going through quite a hard spell. Thank God for apple bread...actually thank God for everything really without Him I would not exist or be who I am today, I can't imagine having to go through the trials of this world without would be so empty! there are tons of great quotes on hardships out there but this one stuck with me :

Better to lose count while naming your blessings than to lose your blessings to counting your troubles. 
~Maltbie D. Babcock 

well as I was saying I decided to make this wonderful really easy bread today to lift my spirits. The smell is so amazing and really does make you feel at home and cozy ;-) I must warn you though that the bread itself is utterly addicting and it is very hard to stop nibbling on it! But please try it...this recipe practically screams out fall  and fits wonderfully with the colder weather we have been having. Serve it slightly warm with a nice cup of steaming apple cider and voila instant calm  ;-)

 Apple Cinnamon bread:

  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 cups white sugar
  • 1 cup veg. oil *
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla
  • 2 cups diced peeled apples (I used 1 gala and 1 granny smith)
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts


  1. Mix the first 5 ingredients together and set aside.
  2. Beat the eggs together then gradually add the sugar and oil until smooth
  3. Add the vanilla to the egg mixture, gradually add the dry ingredients to the egg mixture. mix well. (the batter will be very thick and sticky, don't worry that is normal)
  4. Add the diced apples and mix well
  5. Mix the walnuts in 1 tsp of flour and add to batter
  6. Divide batter into 2 greased loaf pans, top with cinnamon sugar (optional) 
  7. Bake at 350F for one hour (make sure you check the bread after 40 and 50 min just to check progress, every oven is different)
* (yes that is not a typo it really needs 1 cup of oil but maybe try using apple sauce instead for a healthier version, you would need to add slightly more applesauce to get the consistency right but go ahead and try!)

 Again the smell is addicting and so is the taste so beware lol but above all enjoy and remember to thank your Heavenly Father for all He has done!

  1. This recipe is VERY similar to my "world famous" apple bundt cake. (Well, okay, it's not actually world famous, but I always have people asking me for the recipe when I make it.) I might have to dig out my bundt pan to make this!

  2. wow it sounds world famous you should make it sometime ;-)
