Apple Cheddar Quick Bread Recipe
I was looking for Fall recipes and I came across this recipe for Apple Cheddar Quick Bread in the September 2013 edition of Canadian Living and thought it fit the bill perfectly! I normally only make Banana Bread so was curious to see how apple bread would taste. Apples & cheese at first may look like a strange combination but they actually go together perfectly. The sweet tartness of the apples complements the saltiness of the old cheddar. I changed the recipe a bit though. I didn’t peel the apples and I forgot to include the milk. It still turned out delicious though. Spread some butter on each slice and enjoy.
Apple Cheddar Quick Bread
- 2 cups flour
- 1 tsp baking powder

- 1/3 cup, butter, softened
- 2/3 cup sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup Granny Smith apple, diced
- 3/4 cup Granny Smith apple, grated
- In a large mixing bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Stir in 1 cup of the cheddar cheese.
- In another mixing bowl, beat butter until smooth. Beat in sugar. Beat in eggs, 1 at a time. Stir in diced apple and grated apple and stir to combine. Spread in a greased loaf pan and sprinkle with remaining cheddar cheese.
