Apple Amish Friendship Bread

Apple Sheet Cake

It disappears quickly!
This is a great bread to make when there are lots of delicious, crisp Fuji apples and it will feed a crowd! This recipe makes 2 loaves, but I decided to make a sheet cake instead and baked it in a 9" x 13" glass pan.


Wet -
AFB Starter Batter (see below)
6 medium Fuji apples, chopped
2 eggs½ cup Canola oil
1 cup sugar
2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp vanilla

Dry -                      
2 cups flour
1 tsp. baking powder
½ tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. cinnamon
½ tsp. salt

Optional -
1 cup raisins
1 cup chopped nuts

1. Pre-heat oven to 350°F.
2. Grease or butter a 9" x 13" oven-proof pan and dust liberally with sugar. 
3. Beat Wet ingredients (except apples) together until sugar dissolves.
4. Add apples, mix thoroughly and set aside.
5. Sift Dry ingredients and work into wet mixture until well combined.
6. Stir in the Optional ingredients, if using.
7. Pour batter into prepared pan and sprinkle top with raisins.
8. Bake for an hour or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
9. Cool on wire rack until bread loosens from sides of pan before slicing.

Note: This bread freezes well if packaged in a Ziploc bag.
