Apple Orange Bread
Total TimePrep: 15 min. Bake: 50 min. + cooling
There were a few apples and oranges going bad in the fridge so I looked for a recipe that used both - this is the only I found! I did have to make changes based on what I have, so it was 3 small apples and 2 large oranges, butter instead of shortening, and vanilla and almond extract instead of lemon. Oh, and I had no orange juice so I used 4 tbsp of lemon juice with 2 tbsp sugar mixed in 2/3 cup of water. My kitchen smells like Heaven. Somewhere between that carnival candy and funnel cake smell and at a carnival, mixed with lemonade and orange blossoms. Had to cook in 2 small spring form pans for 45 minutes, and both breads/cakes came out perfect. A LITTLE cream cheese frosting to top them off - these are not going to last more than 16 hours in this house. Thanks so much! :) <3
This was very good. Made a lot. I used butter instead of shortening and I didn't use any nuts since I was taking it to a church breakfast and no nuts are allowed there, due to allergies. My blender wouldn't chop the orange, apples and raisins so I ended up transferring it to my food processor to chop. Should have used the food processor in the first place!!! Will definitely make this loaf again.
This is so good! I enjoyed smelling the flavor while it cooked. My husband came home from work and asked what I baked. He was hooked. So good . My sister is an expert baker. I gave her the recipe she enjoyed it also.
I have made this recipe and I really enjoyed making it, too! I admit that I did make adjustments on the recipe for my own tastes, but it is an excellent way to use up apples and oranges!
I have made this bread many times and it is one of my favorites. The flavor is oustanding. I always make sure to purchase an organically grown orange.
These are a nice hearty loaf, tasted great even though I forgot to add the lemon extract. I cut the recipe in half and made mini-loaves.
I made these yesterday and making more today everyone loved it!!!!
I used craisins instead of raisins. Make sure to wash apples and oranges thoroughly before making this. Very moist bread.
