This recipe won best bread at the NC Apple Festival this year, can't wait to give it a try!

Makes 2 loaves

3 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
1 tsp baking soda
3 eggs
2 cups white sugar
1 cup vegetable oil
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups cubed Granny Smith apples
1 cup chopped pecans
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease two 9X5 inch loaf pans. Sift together flour, baking powder, salt, spices, and baking soda. In large bowl, beat eggs until light and fluffy. Add sugar and continue beating until well blended. Stir in oil, vanilla, apples, pecans, and chocolate chips. Stir in sifted ingredients. Pour into prepared loaf pans. Bake for 50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Remove loaves from pans and cool.

This is a super delicious recipe. We didn't cook it long enough, so it was still a little gooey on the inside, but it still tasted great.
