When I was little, my aunt had an apple tree and we loved visiting the apple tree and picking the fresh ones. What a blessing! And my aunt was the best baker I know, so of course we made all sorts of delicious apple desserts.

Applebread is one of her favorites because it can be eaten for breakfast. Yes Yes! Imagine my joy as a child. Light, tasty and nourishing, it will keep you energized for the whole day. If your kid isn’t a breakfast person, this simple quick bread is sure to change their minds.😉

Frequently Asked Questions

Which apple goes well with bread?

Firmer apples such as Granny Smith, Jonathan, Honeycrisp, Braeburn, and Pink Lady are great for making apple bread. It can withstand high temperatures without becoming mushy, keeping its texture and flavor intact.

Why did the applebread fall in the middle?

If the oven temperature drops too quickly before the bread is fully baked, the bread may fall. So don’t open the oven door too soon. Another reason could be that your flour to baking powder ratio is off or your baking powder has expired. If it is not baked enough, the bread may fall off.

Why is my applebread so thick?

Overmixing the dough, not using enough flour, the oven temperature being too low, or the baking powder being expired will result in a thick applebread. Baking is more art than science. If the dough is a little runny, try adding a tablespoon of flour.
