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.

My husband and I give this bread 5+ stars! This bread is delicious and reminiscent of apple pie. It's moist with a good apple flavor. The walnut topping is sweet and crunchy. Based on ingredients that I had on hand, I made a few insignificant changes. I used one large Ambrosia apple, lowfat vanilla Greed yogurt, and all purpose flour in place of the whole wheat flour.

Just made this lovely fall dessert bread. Smelled heavenly while baking. Snatched a bite while still warm and fresh from oven. Very delicious. Tomorrow will be telling. But I think it's a winner! Read More
