This spiced apple bread recipe is a perfect for breakfast or an afternoon snack some tea to warm up on a cold day. It’s one of my favorites to bake throughout the holidays!
Preheat to 350 and make sure rack is in center of the oven. Prep loaf pans by spraying with non-stick spray oil and lining bottom with parchment paper.
Wash apple and carefully grate pulp and skin into a small dish. Measure about approximately 1/2 cup of grated apple.
Whisk together all the dry ingredients in a small bowl. This includes the flour, baking soda, sugar, and spices.
In a separate bowl, whisk the eggs, then add all the wet ingredients including the apple sauce, butter, and fresh grated apple.
Fold the wet ingredients in with the dry ingredients using a spatula or large spoon. Add 1 cup of walnuts. Stir together by hand until blended.
Pour batter into prepared loaf pans. Sprinkle top with remaining walnuts and lightly press them into the batter with your fingertips. Sprinkle tops with one Tbsp turbinado sugar, each.
Bake until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, about 55 to 60 minutes. Leave in pan for 15 minutes, then turn onto a wire rack to cool completely.
