Apple Bread

I made this at Christmas time last year and just loved it.  My mother-in-law got the recipe from Puffin Inn in Ogunquit, Maine.  The top crust gets pretty crispy, which is good unless you don’t keep an eye on it and it gets too hard.  Also, a tip I learned in making quick breads: After they cool, wrap them in plastic wrap and store overnight.  They slice better the next day.

3 cups flour

1 1/2 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp salt

1/4 tsp baking powder

3 eggs

2 cups sugar

1 cup oil

1 Tbls vanilla

2 cups diced apple (without skins)

1/2 cup chopped walnuts

1 tsp flour

Mix flour, cinnamon, soda, salt, and baking powder together. Beat eggs and add sugar and oil. Add vanilla and dry ingredients. Stir in apples. Mix walnuts in a teaspoon of flour and add to batter. Pour into 2 greased loaf pans. Bake at 350 for 1 hour.
