I love Amish-inspired recipes like this delicious apple bread!

What do you consider a "regular loaf pan"? I prefer a 4X8 pan but a lot of sweet bread recipes call or 9X5.

OK YUM! This dessert looks so scrumptious. The best part about this recipe is it looks super easy to make. I'm no chef, so I am always looking for easy and quick recipes to make. I am totally making this in the fall time.

I love apple cake, and I still use a recipe my father gave to me. This sounds really good and very similar to an apple bread produced by a local bakery. I'd definitely add a cup of chopped walnuts to this since the walnuts are a great compliment to banana bread, and I'm sure it would do the same for this. It's a very simple recipe, and I'm looking forward to trying this soon.

This apple bread seems to fall somewhere between bread and cake. It is similar to the recipe I use for making banana bread, the dough of which also ends up being quite thick and not easy to pour, but still not as thick as bread dough. After baking, the texture is really nice, again somewhere between the texture of bread and cake. Quite delicious!

Hmmmm this looks heavenly. It reminds me of the time I spent in Germany as an exchange student. I was given "Apfelkuchen" for breakfast and thought they were crazy eating "cake" for breakfast. I got used to it and then missed it when I went back to eating cereal in the mornings. I think I am going to make this for a trip down memory lane!

Yum, apple bread sounds like a great idea! I would definitely eat this all year long.

The batter was incredibly thick. Baked for 1hr. Would have been ruined had it baked any longer. Tastes, OK.

Didn,t know the formula of your eating ,for what time ,hat only?Or is that food too?

I just mixed the batter up for this recipe and was very concerned by how thick it is. Is the batter supposed to be so thick it isn't pourable? I added a individual sized container of Greek yougurt. It is still baking as it wasn't done after an hour. I had lots of apples I need to use and would love to make more of this recipe so please let me know about the batter please.
Dec 22, 2014
The batter will be thick, but you should still be able to pour it. You may need to bake it for more than 1 1/2 hours. We have updated the recipe to indicate this. Greek yogurt was not used in the original recipe. If you use it, you may need to bake it longer. Thank you!

G'day Just noticed in the recipe it says soda. "Sift flour, cinnamon, soda, and salt." Was I supposed to add soda? If so, what kind and how much?
Nov 13, 2014
The soda referred to baking soda. We updated the recipe to make that clearer. Thanks!

Thanks for submitting your photo of the Amish Apple Bread. It looks great!

G'day! I LOVED this Amish Apple bread and could not believe it made two loaves that came out perfectly! I adapted the recipe using xylitol (sugarless sugar to make it a lot healthier and to suit my food lifestyle) and blogged about the experience, photo and history which I will be sharing via social media too! A definite keeper recipe this is Thank you! I oiled sprayed the loaf pans and allowed the to slightly cooled before removing to wire racks. Cheers! Joanne @What's On The List

This is so deliciously moist!! Real easy to put together with everything already in your pantry. The only problem I had was getting it out of the pan...do you have ant suggestions so it comes out in one piece? Thanks for your super recipes.

Absolutely delicious. For a moment (or two, or seven...) I thought I was eating cake, but lo and behold it was in fact this delightful apple bread. I'll certainly make another loaf this week.

This bread was incredibly moist and full of fall flavor! I might add a streusel topping of cinnamon, brown sugar and butter next time - just to make it an extra special treat.

Loved it! Delicious and easy!

So you don't add the 2 cups of sugar with the dry ingredients? You sprinkle it over the cake? Doesn't make since.

Made this bread to use up some apples I had left over from a pie I had made. I left out the nuts (didn't feel like chopping them) some days are just lazy days, that was one. The bread was still wonderful and moist. The recipe is a keeper.
