This simple Applesauce Bread is the perfect way to enjoy some of fall’s best flavors. Laced with warm spices, brown sugar, and chopped pecans, this quick bread is a delicious treat to make and share during the autumn season.
Servings: 2 loaves
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and grease two 8x4 or 9x5-inch loaf pans with non-stick spray and set aside.
In a large bowl or stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment, combine the applesauce, oil, sugars, eggs, milk, and vanilla and mix on low speed just until combined.
In a separate medium bowl, whisk together the flour and spices. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients in two separate additions, mixing between each one and scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed.
Fold in the chopped pecans and divide the batter evenly between the two loaf pans.
In a small bowl, combine the topping ingredients and then evenly sprinkle over the two pans of batter. Bake for 60 to 70 minutes or until a cake tester comes clean from the center of the loaves.
Remove from the oven and allow to cool in the pan full before removing and enjoying.
