apple bread

I made this bread for the first time this morning. It was a hit with us and with our breakfast guests. Although the dough seems very thick, do not add additional liquid. The resulting cake is moist and light.

Prep Time: 20 Min | Cook Time: 40 Min


2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon allspice
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 cup applesauce (unsweetened)
1 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar, packed
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups apples - peeled, cored, and coarsely chopped


  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. In bowl, combine flour, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder and salt; set aside. In large mixing bowl, combine oil, sugar, eggs, vanilla and apples. Fold dry ingredients into wet ingredients, stir until just moist. Note: dough will be thick, but do not add any more liquid.
  3. Divide mixture between two greased 8-in. x 4-in. loaf pans.
  4. Bake for 40-45 minutes or until bread is done. Cool for 10 minutes on wire rack before removing from pan.
