Note: This bread was good but a bit on the dry side. Next time I make it I will add a 1/4 cup of applesauce and it should be a real winner. The taste was good, I added 1 cup of Splenda, 1/8tsp. Cardamom spice and a 1/4 cup of raisins. The cut piece fit perfectly into a snack bag and the bread freezes well. I didn't have Granny Smith apples and used 2 Red Delicious apples but it was still good. I'll be making it again.
Apple Spice Bread
A mixture of white and whole wheat flour adds fiber to this tasty quick bread. This recipe freezes well.
2 medium Granny Smith apples (about 2 cups)
3 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp. allspice
1/4 tsp. salt
3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
3 Tbsp. canola oil
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 tsp. vanilla extract
Pinch of nutmeg (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Coat 9-inch loaf pan with cooking spray. Peel and grate apples. Toss with lemon juice to prevent browning.
In large bowl, combine flours, baking powder, cinnamon, allspice and salt. Mix well. Make well in center and set aside.
In medium bowl, combine apples, brown sugar, canola oil, egg and vanilla. Mix well. Add mixture to dry ingredients and mix until just blended. Transfer batter to prepared pan.
Bake 1 hour, until wooden pick inserted near center come out almost clean (to preserve moistness). Cool in pan on wire rack, 10 minutes. Remove from pan and cool completely.
