Maine Apple Bread (Pressure Cooker)

I couldn't think of a more perfect day to be sharing this Maine Apple Bread recipe with you. If you live in New England, I'm sure you are looking out the window and seeing the same thing I am; full force Nor'easter. I personally don't mind snow days, because it means my husband gets to work from home with me.

I make sure my pantry is stocked, not because we might get snowed in, but because I want to have everything I need to test new recipes! I just enjoyed a slice of this apple bread with my coffee and am already eyeing it for seconds. Its heavy and moist but not gummy at all. Perfectly satisfying and filling. The flavors remind me of a fresh apple pie!

Maine Apple Bread (pressure cooker & oven)

  • 3 C AP flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 C oil
  • 2 C sugar
  • 2 apples, peeled and diced
  • (optional 1/2 C chopped walnuts)

Mix Wet Ingredients - In your mixer, beat the eggs, then add sugar, oil, and vanilla.

Mix Dry Ingredients - In a separate bowl, mix your flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Slowly add to your wet mixture. 

Add Apples - Stirring by hand, add your apples and walnuts (optional). Your batter will be VERY thick.

Grease your pan - Grease your cake pan, or springform (mine was 8"). You can use a spray oil or brush it on.

Cook -  Add 1 1/2 C of water to the bottom of your pressure cooker pot. Insert trivet. Create a tinfoil sling that your cake pan will sit on top of. This makes it easier to remove. Cover the top of your cake pan with tin foil. Place on top of the trivet, secure lid, and cook at high/manual for 55 minutes with NPR (natural pressure release).  Insert a tooth pick, if it comes out clean, then your Apple Bread is done!

Let cool before serving. You can eat it by itself of with a bit of vanilla ice cream!

Follow all directions above. When you are ready to cook, preheat your oven to 350°. Bake for one hour. Insert a toothpick and if it comes out clean, your Apple Bread is done!
