Oops!  I published this recipe this morning without noticing that Jen had published another recipe a few minutes before me.  Normally I would have chosen to publish it another day, but alas it's really hard to make a post go away once you hit publish so you all just get double recipe goodness today!


Bread  = Good.
Bread + Apples = Very good.
Bread + Apples + Cheese = Excellent!

The ingredients:

1 Tbs. active dry yeast
3/4 cup warm water (110 to 115 degrees)
3 cups all purpose flour, divided ( I used 1-1/2 cups white whole wheat flour + 1-1/2 cups all purpose flour)

1-1/2 cups finely chopped apples
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
2 eggs, lightly beaten
2 Tbs. sugar
2 Tbs. vegetable oil
1 tsp. salt

BREAD:  In a large bowl, combine yeast and water; stirring to dissolve yeast.  Allow to rest for about 5 minutes.  To the yeast mixture, add the all-purpose flour (1-1/2 cups), the chopped apples, shredded cheese, eggs, sugar, shortening, and salt. 

Beat for about 2 minutes. 

Gently stir in remaining flour (1-1/2 cups of white whole wheat flour). 

Cover batter and allow to rise for 50-60 minutes. 
Beat the dough one last time before shaping and placing it into a greased 9x5-inch loaf pan.

Cover and allow to rise about 40 minutes or until nearly doubled.

Bake for 45-55 minutes in a 375-degree oven or until loaf sounds hollow when gently tapped. 

Remove from pan and cool on wire rack at least 15 minutes before serving with some apple butter!
