Farmhouse Apple Walnut Loaf
I call this bread Farmhouse Apple Walnut Loaf because it's every bit home-made, made with fresh apples from the local market, adorned with rich buttery walnut chunks, infused with some fragrant cinnamon spice and baked to a heavenly golden brown and it is deliciously yummy. *Wahooo!
- 1 cup applesauce
- ⅓ cup olive oil
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 eggs
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup walnuts coarsely chopped, & extra for top of bread
- 2 cups Granny Smith apples peeled and chunked
Preheat oven 350° Fahrenheit. Spray a 9x5 loaf pan with non-stick spray and line with parchment paper to remove loaf cake easily when it’s cooled. (Or you can lightly grease and flour)
Using mixer, beat applesauce oil and sugar for up to a minute, then add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each one.
Sift together flour, cinnamon, baking soda and salt together and add into the wet mixture and mix together well, not overmixing.
Add walnuts and apples mix together.
Pour batter into loaf pan and bake 60-70 mins – use the toothpick test to make sure it’s cooked. (Cake needs to spring back on middle top, not be spongy or it won’t be done, so it might take an extra 5 mins, depending on oven temp)
Remove loaf pan from oven and let cool.
Enjoy!! Glaze with a vanilla glaze if you want! See my Apple Fritter Bread for that Glaze!
