MORE APPLES....WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE?

           Apples can be baked, made into applesauce, added to coffeecakes, muffins, cooked

          in tarts,or pies,....the choices are endless! Following is a recipe I often make. It is a

          quick  bread. Quick and easy to make. Very good for dessert or snacking anytime.

                                                             APPLE BREAD

           3/4 cup sugar

           2 eggs

           1 1/2 Tablespoons milk

           1/2 cup cooking oil
                                               
           Cream these ingredients together, then add

           2 cups flour [ I used 1 cup white-wheat flour, and 1 cup all purpose flour]

           1 teaspoon baking SODA

           1/2 teaspoon salt

           Beat all these ingredients well

           Add 1 cup finely chopped, peeled apple [ I have used Cortland, but I like McIntosh]

           Put into a greased loaf pan.

          Sprinkle a mixture of Cinnamon- Sugar on top.[ Buy premixed shaker or mix 1 tea-

           spoon cinnamon with  2  Tablespoon sugar] adding more or less to your taste.

           Bake at 350* for 50 minutes. Cake tester should come out clean when bread is

           cooked through. Let cool completely before cutting. Slice and eat! Butter or not.

                             When baking with apples other fruits may be added. Dried cranberries

             fresh or frozen blueberries, raspberries all blend with the apple. Whether it is a pie,

            apple crisp or even an upside down cake adding 1/2 to 3/4 cup of these fruits make

            a really tasty dish. I know a lady  that always added raisins to her apple pie.[ It was

            actually darn good.! It helps if you like raisins]
