  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease an 8x4 inch loaf pan.
  2. In a bowl, mix the butter and sugar until smooth and creamy. Beat in the eggs.
  3. In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and cloves. Mix into the butter mixture until moistened. Fold in the apples. Transfer to the prepared loaf pan.
  4. Bake 1 hour in the preheated oven, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool in the pan for 15 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.

This is very nice! The only thing I did differently is that I grated the apples and I left out the cloves. Before I added the apples I tested the batter and found that it needed more cinnamon,...

I made this last week for the first time. I followed the recipe using 2 Granny Smith apples, and added 3/4 cup of raisins. I was a bit worried upon putting the bread into the pan, as it seemed...

This is a pretty good apple quick bread. After going through the reviews, I did half white sugar and half brown sugar. I used three chopped apples instead of two. I did use the amount of clov...

This was a very good recipe. I was a little nervous at first becuase before I put the apples in (which I shredded) my batter was like paste. I could hardly get a wooden spoon through it. I grate...
