I made this recipe for a raspberry loaf today, using the last of my whole frozen raspberries in the freezer.

Raspberry Apple BreadScrumptious Homemade Apple Raspberry Bread Recipe

You can use fresh or frozen raspberries for this recipe.

I simply LOVE homemade breads from scratch that include berries!

One bite of this bread, and you realize it tastes like "more"!


2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 red apples, cored and grated (I left the peel on)
1 cup fresh or frozen raspberries

Making Raspberry Bread Homemade


In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and the cinnamon to combine.

Whisk in the granulated sugar and the brown sugar.

In a small bowl, combine the eggs, oil and the vanilla.

Add the egg mixture to the flour mixture, and stir in the grated apples.

Gently so as not to break up the raspberries too much, fold in the raspberries, and stir just until combined. Do not overmix.

The batter will be quite thick.

Transfer the bread batter to a greased (I used non-stick cooking spray), 5" x 8" loaf pan.

Bake at 350° F for about 1 hour, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Note - If the edges of the bread start to become too dark, make a simple shield using foil paper - see baking tip below.

Allow the raspberry apple bread to cool for about 10 minutes, and then remove to a wire rack.

Slice to serve, and spread with butter or raspberry jam.

Serves 8 - 10.

Baking Tip

I'm not sure about you, but I often find that, when baking a loaf of quick bread in a loaf pan, the edges get too dark.

In order for the center of the bread to be fully baked, the bread needs to be kept in the oven longer, but I often notice that the edges are becoming too dark and over-cooked.

To overcome this problem, I make a protective shield from aluminum foil, much like the handy pie crust shield, that I place over the bread after it has baked in the oven for about half of the total time required, (see the photo below).

I have found this to work very well in preventing the edges of the bread from becoming too dark, and the home made shield can usually be kept for the next time you make a loaf.
