Apple Nut Bread

A friend brought a loaf of this nut bread to a ladies' church meeting at my house. It was still warm from the oven. My family likes the nutty texture and fresh apple flavor. —June Mullins, Livonia, Missouri

    I made this last weekend and everyone loved it! I used granny smith apples and chopped walnuts. It was so delicious and I will definitely be making it again very soon!

    I used a granny smith apple and brought this to work. It was wiped out. People were raving over it. Great reaction and it was so quick and as easy to make. Definitely a keeper!

    This is a delicious bread but DOES NOT Freeze well. I have had 3 people tell me this b/c I sell it at an annual bake sale. If eaten fresh, it is delicious.

    I took this to church for a morning snack. Many loved that it had a bit of sweetness on the top, but the bread wasn't overly sweet. I used walnuts that I toasted...I always prefer my nuts in cooking to be toasted! This would also be wonderful with toasted pecans! Very nice and would be wonderful with a cup of coffee or tea!
