2015 Summer Harvest CSA Share Week of September 29

Apple Bread Recipe

Thank you to everyone who joined us (Penn’s Corner staff and growers) for our CSA Celebration at Wigle Whiskey last Friday! We had a ball getting to know you better over ice cream, cocktails, Penn’s Corner food samples and Puerto Rican street food!

Many of you requested the recipe for the apple bread we were sampling. I’ve copied and pasted it below. You can also visit the website here.

We have Penn’s Corner apples, apple sauce, flour and eggs on our online farm stand this week if you need supplies!

Yield: 1 loaf

Cook Time: 50-55 minutes


1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon all spice
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
2 large eggs
1/4 cup canola oil
1/4 cup applesauce
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup granulated sugar
2 cups chopped apples, skin removed (we used Granny Smith)

2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon


1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Spray an 8 by 4 loaf pan with cooking spray and set aside.

2. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, all spice, and cloves. Set aside.

3. In the bowl of a stand mixer, add the eggs and beat on medium speed for about 30 seconds. Add in oil, applesauce, and vanilla and mix until smooth. Next, add the sugar and mix until well combined.

4. Slowly add in the flour mixture and mix until flour is barely combined. Gently fold in the apple chunks. Pour batter into prepared loaf pan.

5. In a small bowl, mix together brown sugar, sugar, and cinnamon. Sprinkle over the batter in the loaf pan. Bake for 50-55 minutes, or until loaf is golden and a toothpick comes out clean.

6. Cool bread in pan for 10 minutes. Loosen sides and remove from pan. Cool completely on a wire rack before slicing.

bartlettYellow Bartlett Pears

Grower: Dawson’s Orchards

Store: Pears will continue to ripen off the tree (indeed, they really have to ripen off the tree to avoid a woody texture). So if your pears are a little green and firm, just leave them at room temperature and they’ll finish up nicely. Then you can refrigerate them.
