1/2 cup oil
1/2 cup butter
1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 to 2 tsp. vanilla
3 cups apples, diced
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 to 2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt (I skipped this since I had salted butter; in original recipe, it was all oil/no butter)
1 cup chopped nuts (optional)
Combine and set aside the oil, eggs, sugar, and vanilla. Sift flour, cinnamon, soda, and salt. Add dry ingredients to oil mixture gradually. Add apples and nuts. Bake in 2 regular loaf pans or 3 foil loaf pans for 1-1/2 hours at 300°F. Cool 10 minutes in the pan. Sprinkle with sugar, if desired.
Note: Someone on online said: I bake it at 325 degrees for about 70 minutes.
LEPF Directions: I just threw everything in the bowl and mixed. Some folks said at least putting the cinnamon in with the apples is a good idea so it flavors more. I also bumped the vanilla and cinnamon up from 1 teaspoon to 2.
For Pampered Chef 4 mini loaves, I cooked for 60-65 minutes.
