Ingredients

For the Bread:

  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon all spice
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1/4 cup applesauce
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 cups chopped apples skin removed (we used Granny Smith)

Topping:

  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Spray an 8 by 4 loaf pan with cooking spray and set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, all spice, and cloves. Set aside.
  3. In the bowl of a stand mixer, add the eggs and beat on medium speed for about 30 seconds. Add in oil, applesauce, and vanilla and mix until smooth. Next, add the sugar and mix until well combined.
  4. Slowly add in the flour mixture and mix until flour is barely combined. Gently fold in the apple chunks. Pour batter into prepared loaf pan.
  5. In a small bowl, mix together brown sugar, sugar, and cinnamon. Sprinkle over the batter in the loaf pan. Bake for 50-55 minutes, or until loaf is golden and a toothpick comes out clean.
  6. Cool bread in pan for 10 minutes. Loosen sides and remove from pan. Cool completely on a wire rack before slicing.
