Apples, apples, everywhere and not a minute to whip up the wonderful recipe that Nisha shared with Marash Girl . . . the recipe Marash Girl is sharing with you today . . .
Nisha's Apple Bread (modified from Allrecipes.com)
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
3 cups apples (that have been peeled and chopped into 1/3 inch cubes)
1 cup vegetable oil (or butter, if you're feeling daring)
2 cups white sugar
3 eggs, beaten
2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp ginger
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Prepare 2 loaf pans (or 8-inch round cake pans) with cooking spray.
Mix together flour, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger and salt. In a separate bowl, whisk together oil, sugar and eggs. Add flour mixture and then mix in apples. (Marash Girl would do this in reverse, adding the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients before mixing in the apples.) Mix all ingredients until just moistened. Divide evenly between pans.
Bake in preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 50-70 minutes (or longer if you're using a loaf pan; round cake pans take less time.)
Cool in the pans for 10 minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire rack.
Nisha whipped this recipe up in minutes to take to a friend who was grieving, and the Apple Bread (Marash Girl would call it Apple Cake) did wonders in the cheering up department!
