If you love apples this bread is for you! I have had people fight over the last piece! LOL

I ususally make this in the fall when apple picking is in season, but it's a request I get often.

You can pretty much use any apples you like but I prefer to use Northern Spy, Jonagold, Jonathan, Honey Crisp, or Pink Lady.

Enjoy!

How to Make Ciao Bella Apple Bread

Step-by-Step

  • 1Grease 2 9" X 5" loaf pans and place a piece of wax paper cut to fit loaf pans on bottom. (this will allow bread to come out of pan easier when cooled)

  • 3Melt butter and let cool.
  • 4In a seperate bowl mix flour with baking soda,cinnamon,salt and baking powder; set aside.
  • 5Once butter is cooled slightly combine with apples.
  • 6Add eggs and vanilla.
  • 7Mix flour mixture with apple mixture. Do not over mix or your bread will be tough.
  • 8Divide batter evenly among pans. Sprinkle each with remainder 2 teaspoons sugar. Bake at 325 degrees for 1 hour and 15 minute to 1 hour and 30 minutes, until toothpick tested in center of bread comes out clean.
  • 9Cool on wire racks for at least 1 hour before removing from pans(remove wax paper). Cool bread completely on wire racks. Wrap breads in plastic wrap when cooled. Also makes 6 mini loaves (5" X 3"), or 3 (8" X 4") loaves. Reduce baking time to 45-50 minutes for mini's and 50-60 minutes for 8" X 4".
