Well I probably can't say ever because technically this is the only apple bread I've ever eaten but omg is it delicious. We have a bunch of red apples that arn't getting eaten and I was going to make a pie but all the recipes tend to want green apples so I searched recipes for red apples and came across apple bread, I said what the heck lets try it. It's so moist and yummy!!! Please forgive me I'm not sure exactly where I got the recipe I just printed it out and now I can't find the source...

3 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
3 large eggs
1 cup vegetable oil (I'm not sure if canola oil is different, but I used canola...)
2 cups granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 cups diced apples (I didn't really follow this I probably had about 3.5 cups)
1 cup chopped walnuts (optional) (I didn't add these but I did add a couple  handfuls of raisins)

1) Preheat oven to 325 F Grease two 9 x 5 x 3-inch loaf pans (used glass, don't know if it matters or not) ~~Also go lightly on the grease, the outside of my bread kinda tastes like pan or pam or w/e it is now, lol~~ Set Aside.
2) In bowl combine flour, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
3) In another bowl beat the eggs, oil, sugar, and vanilla together, mixing well. Stir in flour mixture until just mixed. Fold in the apples and walnuts (and/or raisins) and spoon into prepared loaf pans.
4) Bake for 1hr 15mins or until tested done when wooden pick inserted in center of loaf comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes in the pans before removing to cool on wire racks. Wrap tightly to store. (Well it was late for me so after I took them out I set the on the stove and put cellophane on top (yes it did melt it to the sides, lol) and the bread has stayed in the pans since just covered in cellophane.

Makes 2 loaves

I added all my commentary because I'm not sure whether mine turned out differently because I did things differently or not...

Also when I make this again I will definately add more raisins!!! LOL Grin

I bake a cake very simular to this one and it is very very good but I call it a cake.lol.  It is very delishous and I recommend it warmly.  (I only use canola oil).  You have my vote!!!  A great tasting and moist cake\bread.
I apologize for my spelling mistakes...my secret is out.  (couldn't get the spell check to work.)  Sorry

How small of a dice do you use to get the apples cooked, or does it matter?  Do you think I could just grate the apples?  Just wondering!

I actually had pretty big chucks imo, since it cooks for over an hour they pretty much bake out into the bread (or cake, lol) Now I wouldn't say you should put two inch chunks in there but you don't have to be perfect when dicing them.

That does sound tasty.  I like the addition of raisins too.  Sounds like something I might have to try soon!

I made this yesterday and ...I only have half a loaf left today after everyone got to it  Cheesy  Needless to say, it was great!  Thanks for the recipe and for the tip about the apples.

I like to modify things, so just in case anyone wants a yummy (semi-)variation on this recipe, here's what I did: 
1.  reduced the amount of oil (I probably used 3/4 cup or less)
2.  added a splash of orange juice to get the batter thinned out a bit (because of the lack of oil)
3.  used less sugar in the actual bread, and sprinkled the loaves with extra sugar before baking to make them super crunchy on top
4.  used half all-purpose and half whole-wheat flour, almost a tablespoon of cinnamon, and 1/2 tsp of ginger. 

Next time I'm going to try to replace the eggs in an attempt to veganize this.  I loved it!
