|The "winning" Apple Cinnamon Loaf Recipe|
|Look Good ~ Taste Bad|
2 cups flour
|Better Topping than Loaf|
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon cloves
1/2 teaspoon ginger
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup sugar (granulated white)
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 heaping tablespoons applesauce
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup oatmeal
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
Preheat oven to 350F degrees. Combine flour, soda, salt and spices. Set aside. In a large mixer cream the butter until lighter yellow and somewhat fluffy. With the mixer on a medium-high speed, slowly add the white then brown sugar until well combined. Beat in the eggs and applesauce. (May use sweet or unsweetened applesauce.) With the mixer on low, slowly add in the dry ingredients. Stop the mixer. Peel, core and chop the apples into small pieces. Fold in with a spoon or with the mixer on very low/stir.
Spoon the batter into a loaf pan(s) that have been greased or sprayed with food release (Pam). Use one standard loaf pan or three mini-loaf pans.
Combine the topping ingredients and sprinkle over the tops of the loaf(s).
Bake 30-35 minutes for mini-loaf or 55-60 minutes for a standard loaf, or until a pick inserted in the center comes out clean.
