INGREDIENTS:
 3 eggs beaten
 1 tsp salt
 1 tsp baking soda
 2 cups of white sugar
 3 cups of apples peeled, cored and chopped into chunks
 1 cup vegetable oil
 2 tbsp ground cinnamon
 3 cups of all-purpose flour

This recipe for an Apple bread is actually a cake-bread or batter bread and can either be made in a bread machine or finished in the oven.
It uses the cake setting on a bread machine, but if you’re machine doesn’t have a cake setting you can always use the pizza dough setting and bake it in a bread pan in the oven. The reason you use the pizza dough setting to mix the batter is because it doesn’t have a rising cycle which is unnecessary for a cake bread.

The typical recommendation for any baking apple is a green-apple like a Granny Smith. I’ve used every kind of apple for baking and you should feel free to use what you like or have on hand. They’ll need to be peeled, cored and chopped but the apple flavor will always come through regardless of the variety.

DIRECTIONS:
Bake in Bread Machine:
1

Pour all of the ingredients into the bread pan in the order indicated.

2

Select the cake or cake-bread setting for a 1.5 loaf for medium crust.

Started in the bread machine and finished in the oven (in case you don’t have a cake-bread setting)
3

If you don’t have a cake or cake-bread setting add the dough to the bread pan in the same order indicated and select the pizza dough setting until the batter is done.

4

Pre-heat oven to 300° F./150° C. Butter a 8-½ inch by 4 ¼ baking pan and pour in the batter.

5

Bake for 70 minutes or until a skewer or toothpick emerges dry from the center.

6

Let rest for 10 minutes and slice and serve. Can be wrapped and refrigerated for up to one week.

    So I tired this in my bread maker just as the recipe calls for and it didn’t work. It cooked the outside but not the inside. I think the setting for 1.5 loaf wasn’t long enough. So I’m putting in back in the machine and put it on bake to try and salvage it. Hopeful! Will update once done baking second time.

      Hi Samantha,

      There’s always a challenge when making a cake bread. You can tell when something is a cake bread because the recipe calls for baking soda and/or baking powder instead of yeast. The test for doneness is to insert a wooden skewer or knife into the center when you think it’s done. If the knife or the skewer come out wet it means the cake bread needs more time. There are settings on most bread machines that let you add baking time. I would start with 10 minute increments and test again with the skewer or knife until it comes out dry. If you don’t have custom settings on your machine you could try the 2.0-pound loaf setting or take the entire loaf and finish it in the oven on a baking sheet at 425 degrees Fahrenheit, again testing the center every 10 minutes. The outside of the loaf will have enough integrity to support the loaf in the oven. I hope this helps.
