1 cup sugar
1/2 cup Crisco
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2-3 teaspoonfuls cinnamon (optional; it's good both ways)
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup chopped apples (I leave the peel on)
1/2 cup nuts (optional; I always leave them out)
Cream sugar and Crisco. Add eggs. Add dry ingredients. Add vanilla. Mix in apples and nuts by hand. Don't taste the batter or you will end up eating ALL of it.
Pour into greased bread pan. Bake at 350 degrees F for 1 hour. Spill water on it and fling it into the yard in a weepy tantrum, or else slice it and eat it. I like to toast it and butter it and eat it with a hot cup of coffee or tea. MMMmmmm.
