Apple Pie Quick Bread

This quick bread smells and tastes just like apple pie in a moist and fluffy slice, the perfect accompaniment to your morning coffee or the perfect end to your day with a little bit of vanilla ice cream! Using applesauce instead of butter is an easy way to make this bread a bit healthier for you, but it does give it a bit of a chewy texture. I recommend doubling the batch because it sure won’t last long.

*Use this bread instead of your normal store-bought bread, to make a killer french toast to take your brunch to the next level.

Ingredients:

1/2 tbsp Cinnamon

1/3 cup White Sugar

2/3 cup Brown Sugar, Divided

1/4 cup Apple Sauce (note: you can replace the applesauce with 1/2 cup of butter if you prefer)

2 Eggs, Beaten

1 tsp Vanilla Extract

1 1/2 cups Flour

2 tsp Baking Powder

1/3 cup Milk

1 Large Apples, Peeled and Chopped

1 tbsp Butter, melted

  1. Preheat your oven to 350F. Grease an 8×4 loaf pan.
  2. Combine 1/3 cup of the brown sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl and set aside.
  3. With a mixer on medium, cream white sugar, remaining brown sugar and butter until fluffy. Mix in applesauce (if using), beaten eggs and vanilla.
  4. Stir together flour and baking powder. Add flour to egg mixture along with milk and stir just until combined. Do not overmix!!
  5. Pour half of the batter into a greased and floured loaf pan. Sprinkle with 1/2 of the apples and 1/2 of the cinnamon mixture.
  6. Stir the remaining apples into the remaining batter and pour into the pan. Top with the remaining cinnamon mixture.
  7. Bake approx. 40 minutes. Brush topping with melted butter. Continue baking an additional 5-10 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  8. Let cool 10 minutes and remove from pan.
