Ingredients

1 cup butter
1-1/2 cups sugar
3 eggs
4 cups flour
1-1/2 tablespoons baking powder
1-1/2 teaspoons salt
2-1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
2 cups apple cider
2 cups apples, peeled, cored, and chopped

Instructions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease and flour 2 loaf pans or 18 muffin cups.

In a bowl, combine butter and 1-¼ cups of the sugar and beat until creamy. Add the eggs and mix thoroughly. Sift together the flour, baking powder, salt, and 1-½ teaspoons of the cinnamon and add to the egg mixture, alternating with the apple cider. Stir in chopped apples. Divide the batter between the loaf pans or pour into the muffin cups. Combine the remaining sugar with the remaining teaspoon of cinnamon in a small bowl, and sprinkle it over the batter. Bake for 50 to 70 minutes for bread, or for 30 to 40 minutes for muffins, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.

The flavor of this recipe improves if the bread is allowed to rest 24 hours after it is baked.

Yield: 

2 loaves or 18 muffins

Baking fresh fruit can be risky

The juice from the apple made this a mushy, wet bread/muffin. But the flavor was excellent.

This is yummy quick bread. I cut back on the sugar content using unsweetened applesauce and it came out great. Highly recommend.

APPLE CIDER BREAD

YUK!! THIS WAS THE WORST TASTING TREAT EVER. MY WIFE MADE THE BREAD AND IT DID NOT RISE, IT ACTUALLY SANK. THE LOAFS WERE AS HEAVY AS A BRICK. ARE YOU SURE THE INGREDIENTS WERE CORRECT. NO BAKING SODA AND 1.5 TEASPOONS OF SALT. IT MIGHT HAVE WORKED IF IT HAD CREAM AND LESS VINEGAR. DID ANYONE HAVE SUCCESS.

Apple Cider Bread

Use the cider pressed from apples, not the fermented liquid that has turned to vinegar.

Hi, Myron. After reading another response to your query we realized you used apple cider vinegar instead of the apple cider beverage. We hope you give it another try.
