I love this warm or toasted with butter, especially at teatime.

 

1 Cup vegetable oil

2 Cups sugar

3 eggs, beaten

3 Cups whole wheat flour**

1 tsp. salt

1 tsp. baking soda

2 Cups peeled, chopped or grated apples (about 4 apples)

1 Cup nuts-walnuts or pecans

2 tsp. vanilla extract

 

Preheat oven to 350F.  Grease and flour 2 loaf pans.

In a large bowl,  combine oil, sugar and eggs.  In a medium bowl, sift together flour, salt & soda.  

Gradually add dry ingredients to the wet, mixing well after each addition.  Fold in apples, nuts and vanilla.  

Pour into 2 loaf pans.  Bake at 350F for @1-1/2 hours.   Turn out of pans while still warm (after 20-30 mins) and let cool.

 

**Option-use 1-1/2 cups whole wheat flour plus 1-1/2 cups unbleached white flour
