Apple Bread

Yet another recipe passed on from one of my coworkers – apple bread.  I always have Fuji apples at home and all of the other ingredients in this recipe are already in the pantry.  In my opinion, these are the best kinds of recipes because you don’t have to do any extra shopping.  I also got to try out our brand new food processor to chop up all of the apples, yay!

Another amazing thing about this recipe is it makes a TON of bread.  It makes two full loaves, but I opted to make mini apple muffins with the other half of the batter.  I topped them off with some chopped pecans for an added crunch.  As always, I sampled both the loaf and the mini muffins, and both came out so moist and delicious! 

Slices of deliciousness
