Buttermilk-Apple Spice Bread

This is a new recipe that I'm trying this year from Farm Fresh Recipes from Lapecek's Orchard. The orchard is located near Madison, Wisconsin and always has plenty of fun activities and a family environment.

Buttermilk-Apple Spice Bread
4 cups flour
2 cups oats
1 cup brown sugar
2 Tbsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
6 cups apples, peeled and chopped
3 eggs, beaten
2 1/4 cups buttermilk
1/4 cup oil
2 tsp. vanilla

Preheat oven to 375ºF. Combine dry ingredients in a large bowl. Add apples, and toss to coat. Beat eggs in separate bowl, and beat in buttermilk, oil and vanilla. Pour egg mixture into dry ingredients, mixing until just blended.

Spoon batter into two greased 9x5 bread pans. Bake for 70 minutes until done. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans. Cool completely on wire racks.
