25 Recipes of Christmas: Apple & Celery Bread

For the next 25 days, I want to share the recipes that mean Christmas to my family. Following is one of my favorite Christmas bread recipes. It is a moist, dense bread that is fantastic topped with cream cheese. I’ve made these into mini-loaves and given them away with cookie plates in the past.

Apple & Celery Bread

2 cups unpeeled apples — diced
1/2 cup celery — diced
3 large eggs
1 cup vegetable oil
1 3/4 cups sugar
3 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon baking powder

Beat eggs in mixing bowl. Add oil and sugar. Mix well. Add apples and celery and blend.

Sift together dry ingredients and add to above mixture, just to blend.

Pour into a greased loaf pan and bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour.
