Super Yummy Cinammon Apple Bread

I haven't done a whole lot of baking, or cooking for that matter, lately. Yesterday I decided I was going to try making some Cinammon Apple Bread. The recipe called for raisins but we didn't have any so I just doubled the amount of apples. Good thing because apparently my hubby doesn't like raisins! The bread turned out fantastic & there is only about half a loaf left today! When I make it again I think I will add in some nutmeg for more flavor. Not only does this bread taste great it made the entire house smell amazing!

Cinammon Apple Bread

2 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter (melted)
1 egg (beaten)1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup peeled, chopped apples
1/2 cup raisins

Preheat oven to 350F. In a large bowl combine flour, baking soda, salt, sugar and cinnamon. Add melted butter, egg, milk and vanilla. Mix well. Fold in chopped apples and raisins. Pour batter into a lightly greased loaf pan. Top with chopped pecans (if using). Bake at 350F for approximately 45 minutes or until center is baked through. Cool for 10 minutes in pan before removing to wire rack to cool completely.

I noticed that my bread took about an hour & 15 minutes to cook.
