Show them you care with this sugar-crusted holiday fruit and nut bread. It’s good enough for gift-giving—just make it in a disposable aluminum foil pan.

Ingredients

3/4
cup sugar
1/2
cup vegetable oil
1
egg
1
cup shredded peeled apple (about 1 medium)
1 1/2
cups Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
1/2
teaspoon baking soda
1/2
teaspoon baking powder
1/2
teaspoon salt
3/4
cup chopped walnuts
1/2
cup dried cranberries
1
tablespoon sugar
1/2
teaspoon ground cinnamon

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 350°F. Grease bottom only of 8x4- or 9x5-inch loaf pan with shortening.
  • 2 In large bowl, mix 3/4 cup sugar, the oil and egg. Stir in apple, flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Stir in walnuts and cranberries. Pour batter into pan. In small bowl, mix 1 tablespoon sugar and the cinnamon; sprinkle over batter.
  • 3 Bake 45 to 55 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes. Loosen sides of loaf from pan; remove from pan to wire rack. Cool completely, about 1 1/2 hours, before slicing.

Expert Tips

To easily shred the apple, use a medium-sized grater.

For added fiber, leave the peel on the apple.

Make the bread ahead and refrigerate or freeze. The bread will actually become more moist and easier to slice after storage.

This is a perfect bread for gift giving! Bake it in a disposable aluminum foil pan. When cool, wrap in foil or colored plastic wrap and tie with a ribbon.
