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.
3/4 cup sugar
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]
