Apple Bread

1 1/2 c. peeled, grated, and packed tart apple
All the ingredients together
3 Tbsp. lemon juice
1/2 tsp. lemon rind, grated
1/2 c. brown sugar
4 Tbsp. butter, melted
1 egg
2 c. flour
2 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 c. cashews, minced

Apple batter
Preheat oven to 350 F. Lightly grease a loaf pan.

Combine the grated apple, lemon juice, and rind in a medium sized bowl. Beat in the sugar, butter, and egg.

Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon into another medium sized bowl. Make a well in the center, and add the apple mixture, along with the vanilla and the nuts. Stir with a wooden spoon until just combined.

Spread into the prepared pan. Bake for 45-50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean. Cool in the pan about 10 minutes, then remove to a rack to finish cooling.

Next time I may try adding raisins.
