"This delicious Walnut Apple Bread has been a family favorite recipe for many years! It has wonderful fall flavors (such as juicy apples, walnuts, cinnamon, and vanilla), and the top bakes into a crispy crust!"

NotesWe used Golden Delicious apples because they're "delicious" in this bread.

A simple way to divide the batter evenly is to scoop the same number of spoonfuls of batter into each pan.

Usually with my cakes, muffins and sweet bread recipes I recommend not over-baking, but this bread turns out perfect when baked the recommended time of 1 hour and 15 minutes. It takes this long because of the juicy apples and under-baking the breads may cause them to collapse in the center. Therefore, bake for the recommended time.

The tops of the breads will be crunchy, so use a sharp serrated knife to easily slice them.
