Apple Bread (bbd #2: "Bread with Fruit")

I found instructions to make an apple bread in a vintage American cook book by J. L. Croly (1870) which simply indicated to use 1 part of pureed stewed apples and two parts of flour plus salt and yeast, using either white or Graham flour.

The result is a really good bread. Full recipe is here http://bakinghistory.wordpress.com/2007/07/14/apple-bread/

Manuela, this looks lovely. and I imagine it's a very good bread. I imagine it's semi-fruity taste would be a great complement to many meals.

With your interest in historic baking, you might enjoy the novel "Larissa's Bread Book", which includes several historic breads. I don't know how accurate they are, but it's an interesting book.

Thanks KipperKat,

I did not know the book you mention, but I just looked it up and definitely it will be one of my next purchases!
