Stribling Apple Bread (or Muffins!)

My friend, Karen, shared this recipe with me last year, and it quickly became one of my favorites. These are the kinds of muffins that you eat for breakfast AND dessert. So delicious! Last night, when I mentioned that I wanted to use the slightly bruised apples to make some bread, KitKat said, "Ooh! Can we make apple OATMEAL muffins?" I compared a few recipes and decided that it was safe to substitute a cup of the flour with a cup of regular oatmeal. They were delicious!

Stribling Apple Bread (or muffins)
2 cups sugar
2 eggs
1 cup vegetable oil
1 Tbsp. vanilla
3 cups flour (or 2 cups flour and 1 cup oatmeal)
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. cinnamon
3 cups apples, peeled and chopped

Preheat oven to 350. Cream sugar, eggs, oil and vanilla. Sift flour, salt, baking soda, and cinnamon. Add dry mix to wet mix, along with apples. Mix until well-blended; note that batter will be quite thick. Grease and flour loaf pan (or muffin tins); cook loaf for 1 hour, or muffins about 20 minutes.

PS--I wholeheartedly recommend using silicon baking cups. They bake perfectly, and clean up is a breeze!

  1. You post the best recipes. I need to plan a menu using your recipes one of these days. I have a bag of apples that aren't being eaten... I think we will have a baking project tonight!

  2. These sound really good. I wonder if you could cut down on how much oil you use by using applesauce too? Any suggestions?

  3. Yummmm! Those sound really good! Thanks for sharing - and thanks for the tip on the silicon backing cups, I've been thinking about getting some to make baking easier! ;)

  4. I love muffins, can wait to try out this recipe. Thanks for sharing.


Thanks for stopping by! Let me know if you try out any of these recipes, and if you have any requests! :)
