Recipe – Apple Quick Bread

This is a nice quick read and an excellent snack. Especially during the cooler seasons when you may more like baking.


  • 4 Granny Smith apple, grated
  • 1 ¾ granulated sugar
  • 2-ounce raisins
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • ½ cup whole pecans, for garnish

Preparation Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a loaf pan with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • Combine grated apple and sugar in a medium bowl, give a quick stir, and set aside 15 minutes. Apple will be watery. This is what we’re looking for.
  • In a separate bowl, add raisins, vanilla extract, and eggs. Mix until just combined.
  • In a different large-sized bowl, add in flour, baking powder, baking soda, and cinnamon, whisk until incorporated.
  • Add apple mixture to egg mixture and give a quick stir. Then add in dry ingredients. Mix with a hand mixer or hand whisk just until combine, do not overmix. Transfer to the prepared loaf pan
  • Bake in the oven for 1 hour to 1 hour-15 minutes, start checking at 1 hour. When a wooden toothpick inserted comes out clean, remove from the oven and let cool for 15 minutes before take out from the pan.


  • Makes 9” x 5” loaf pan—about 9 (1 inch) servings
