Apple Bread

I haven't tried this yet but it sure smelled yummy!  I double this recipe and got three regular sized loaves out of it.  They're all in the freezer at the moment but I'm looking forward to trying this.

Apple Bread

2 cups flour (I used half white and half whole wheat)
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/2 cup butter
1 1/4 cups sugar
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups peeled, finely chopped apples
1/2 cup pecans, optional

Sift together flour, baking powder, salt, nutmeg, and cinnamon.  Set aside.

Cream butter and sugar together until light and fluffy.  Beat in eggs 1 at a time, beating well after each addition.  Stir in dry ingredients and apples and pecans a half at a time.

Pour into well greased, well floured, 9 x 5 x 3 inch loaf pans.  (Or small loaf pans, or muffins)

Bake at 350 degrees for 50-60 minutes.  Cool in pan for 10 minutes.  Remove to cool.
