Autumn cinnamon bread

Each summer, though I love the sunshine and hot days, I always find myself longing for fall. I miss the cool air, the gorgeous leaves, and the cozyness the season brings.

And every fall, as soon as the weather turns chilly, I always find myself wanting baked goods, pumpkin anything, and lots of sweet spices like cinnamon and nutmeg. Mmm...

I'm going make the assumption that you're a little bit like me. For those fellow pumpkin lovers, I shared a ridiculously easy pumpkin cookie recipe awhile ago, and still have more pumpkin recipes to share.

Today, though, I have the perfect fall treat. An autumn apple cinnamon bread. (no yeast needed!)
We are approaching prime apple season, and this bread is a great way to bake with your favorite variety.

For the bread, you'll need:
-- 2 apples, diced into small pieces.
-- 1½ cups whole wheat OR all-purpose flour
-- 1 teaspoon baking soda
-- 2 tablespoons cinnamon
-- 1 teaspoon nutmeg
-- 1 teaspoon salt
-- 2 eggs
-- 1 cup granulated sugar
-- ¼ cup applesauce
-- ¼ cup canola oil
-- 2 tablespoons vanilla extract

For the cinnamon layer and topping, you'll need:
-- 3 tablespoons brown sugar
-- 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
-- 2 tablespoons cinnamon

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and grease (or spray with nonstick cooking spray) an 8×4-inch loaf pan.

2. Begin by chopping your apples into small pieces. Or do large pieces. Whatever you want in your bread.

 3. In a medium sized bowl, stir together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. Set aside.

4. In a larger bowl, beat the eggs on medium speed for about 30 seconds.
Add in the oil, applesauce and vanilla and mix until combined.
Then, add the sugar and mix well.

5. With the mixer on low, slowly add in the flour mixture and blend until the flour is just barely combined. Stir in the apples.

6. In a small bowl, mix the brown sugar, white sugar, and cinnamon, noted at the beginning.

7. Pour half of the batter into the prepared loaf pan. Sprinkle half of the cinnamon sugar topping over the batter.

8. Pour in and smooth out the rest of the batter in the loaf pan, and sprinkle the remaining cinnamon sugar on top.

9.  Bake for 60 minutes, or until the loaf is golden and a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.



And finally, as I am a FIRM BELIEVER in the deliciousness of butter, you need to know that this is best served warm, with butter. No need to eat it straight out of the oven though; 13 seconds in the microwave is perfect!

What's your favorite fall flavor??

  1. That looks beautiful.
    I'm not a huge baked apple lover, but I may need to try this, because I know Kyle would love it! It will make it feel a little more like fall over here, since there are no cooler temps, boots and scarves or PSLs from Starbucks to cue autumn!!

    P.S. I love your new blog look!!!

  2. Does this really require two tablespoons of vanilla? Or teaspoons?

  4. First, look for the official stamps of legality and cleanliness dior replica: licenses. If the salon is in the United States, the state health department must approve it.
