This easy everyday apple-pie bread makes a great breakfast-on-the-go with a cup of coffee. The fragrant spices typical of apple pie and the tender bits of baked apple inside also make it worthy as a healthy after-dinner dessert. Enjoy it warm from the oven with a pat of butter or cream cheese or keep it on your counter for a tasty treat during the week.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 9-by-5-inch loaf pan with baking spray.

  • Stir granulated sugar, yogurt and eggs together in a large bowl until well combined. Add applesauce, vanilla and 6 tablespoons melted butter; stir well to combine and set aside.

  • Whisk 1 cup all-purpose flour, whole-wheat flour, baking soda, apple pie spice and salt in a medium bowl. Add chopped apple and stir until the pieces are evenly coated. Add the flour-apple mixture to the egg mixture; stir until just combined. Spoon into the prepared loaf pan.

  • Combine walnuts, brown sugar, cinnamon and the remaining 1 tablespoon each melted butter and all-purpose flour in a small bowl. Sprinkle evenly on the batter in the pan.

  • Bake until a wooden pick inserted in the center of the loaf comes out clean, 55 to 60 minutes. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes. Gently turn out onto a wire rack; let cool completely, about 1 hour.


To make ahead: The bread will keep, well wrapped, at room temperature for up to 3 days or in the freezer for up to 4 months.
