Apple Bread

When it gets colder outside I find myself in the kitchen more and this last week I have been in the kitchen a lot.  One of the recipes I tried this week I had to share with you.  It is a recipe I found in a Mary Engelbreit book.  I made it because I had some apples I needed to use up and was in the mood to try a new recipe and this one is definitely a keeper.

Just look at those chunks of apple.  YUM!  The recipe says to leave the peel on the apples which is something I usually don't do.  I don't like apple peel but for this recipe I left the peel on and I think it makes a huge difference. 

This is a recipe you all need to try and it is so easy.  It even looks good before it is baked, the dough tastes good too.  Shhhhhhhhh!  I snuck a taste.

Here is the recipe:

Apple Bread

Beat together
3/4 cup vegetable oil
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs

Stir in
1 1/2 cups chopped, unpeeled apples
1/4 cup walnuts
1 Tbsp. grated lemon zest

Sift together
1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt

Add to apple mixture.  Do not over mix.

Pour into a 9 x 5 loaf pan.  Bake at 350 degrees for 55 to 60 minutes.
