In the winter we make a lot of banana bread because when bananas go bad I put them in the freezer, but today I had apples so I made apple bread!
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
3 cups apples - peeled, cored, and chopped
1 cup butter
1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
3 eggs, beaten
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C). Prepare 2 loaf pans (8 1/2x4 1/2-inch loaf pans) with cooking spray.
Mix flour, baking soda, salt, walnuts, and apples in a large bowl. Mix butter, sugar, eggs, and cinnamon together in a small bowl; add to flour mixture and mix until just moistened. Evenly divide mixture between prepared loaf pans.
Bake in preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 60 minutes.
Cool in the pans for 10 minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire rack.
