Apple Quick Bread

5 from 10 reviews

This easy quick sweet bread is plump full of apple chunks and chopped pecans. The top of the bread is lightly sprinkled with a cinnamon pecan sugar mixture giving the edges a little bit of crispy sweet goodness.




  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a loaf pan.
  2. In large bowl mix together flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt and baking powder.
  3. In medium bowl mix together eggs, sugar, vegetable oil and applesauce.
  4. Add wet ingredients to dry and mix just until incorporated. Fold in apples and half of the pecans. Combine remaining pecans, 1 tablespoon of sugar, and 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon; sprinkle over loaf.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center of the bread comes out clean, 55 to 60 minutes. Invert to remove loaf as soon as possible.


To toast pecans just spread them on a baking and pop them in the oven at 350 degrees for about 6 – 8 minutes. Toast them whole and then chop them after they cool.
If you don’t want to purchase applesauce just substitute 2 more tablespoons of oil.
