Apple Bread

Finally... it is under 70 degrees here in Houston.  (Well, it keeps creepin up, but today I actually wore a scarf and it was glorious).  Whether the weather is cooperating or not, this apple bread will make you feel like you are in the midst of fall no matter what the temperature outside is.  This is one of my favorite fall recipes and it takes very little time to put together.  It's one of those recipes that a slice is just as good as breakfast, as it is for a late night snack.  The only problem is, it never lasts more than 24 hours around here... no matter how much I make.  
From my little kitchen to yours... Enjoy.

Apple Bread
Recipe Notes
I used honey crisp apples, but I am sure any variety that you like would work just fine.  This batter gets very very thick.  I suggest using a sturdy wooden spoon to stir in the apples.
1 C. canola or vegetable oil
3 eggs
3 C. flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
2 C. sugar
2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. vanilla
3 C. chopped apple (peeled and cored/ chopped into bite size pieces)

Step by Step
1. Preheat oven to 300° F.
2. Beat sugar and oil together.
3. Add eggs and vanilla.
4. Combine dry ingredients separately, and add slowly to wet ingredients.
5. Mix in apples using a sturdy spoon, because the batter will be very thick.
6. Sprinkle generously with sugar after baking.
7. Bake in 2 large loaf pans for 1 hour 15 minutes. 

Makes two large loaves.
