vblake, can you post the recipe you have? That would help us figure out what you'd need.

ingredients for apple bread

it calls for apples,flour,sugar, eggs,salt, cinnamon, vanilla, oil, and I was using baking powder. I'm not thrilled with the results, it doesn't rise well and comes out very heavy. I was wondering if I should be using baking soda instead?

Mine calls for baking soda. Here's a link to it...in case you want to compare the ingredients.

The bread may not be supposed to be "light". Follow the recipe as directed because it is really "chemistry". One thing about quick breads is not to overmix--you may have done that which can make it heavy.
