1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1 cup sugar
1 cup finely shredded peeled apple
1/4 cup oil
1 egg
1/4 tsp finely shredded lemon zest
1/2 cup walnuts (optional)

Combine flour, cinnamon, baking soda, salt, baking powder, and nutmeg. In another bowl, combine sugar, apple, oil, egg, and lemon peel; mix well. Add flour mixture, stil just til combined. Stir in nuts, if using.
Pour into a greased loaf pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 50-60 minutes. Cool on wire rake

I got this recipe out of the Better Homes and Garden cookbook and the bread was so good that the entire loaf is gone. I used one large granny smith apple for the 1 cup needed. And I have another apple left, so I will be making another loaf of apple bread tomorrow.
