Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x5-inch loaf pan.

  • Sift the flour, baking soda, and salt together in a bowl. Beat the butter and brown sugar together with an electric mixer in a large bowl until light and fluffy. The mixture should be noticeably lighter in color. Add the first egg, allowing it to blend into the butter mixture before adding the other. Blend the applesauce and 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon into the mixture. Pour the flour mixture into the butter mixture, mixing until just incorporated. Fold in the dried apple pieces; mixing just enough to evenly combine. Pour the batter into prepared pan. Stir 1 teaspoon cinnamon and the white sugar together in a small bowl; sprinkle over the batter.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 1 hour. Cool in the pan 10 to 15 minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire rack.

Substituted applesauce for oil. 3/4 cup of applesauce instead of 1cup of oil. This changes the bake time to 80 minutes. Bread came out moist not wet. I used fresh apples it makes all the difference. Read More

I had excess dried apples so this sounded perect......I just didn't like the taste and when brought in to the office only a few slices were taken which is usually not the case of baked good I bring in. Sorry hopefully it will work for others:) Read More

with the few changes that other reviewers made like 1/2 white and 1/2 brown sugar as well as 2 teaspoon of vanilla and extra cinnamon which is my family's personal preference it was delicious. I used honey crisp apples which really cook up well. Read More

After I made this the first time it was so well liked that I made it again the next day and then again for my husband to take to work. I ran out of oil so I substituted a stick of butter (melted) and half a cup of sour cream. It turned out perfectly! Read More

Made it as written and then used half brown sugar half white. Preferred the half brown sugar cake. I used a bundt pan and it was cooked to perfection in 90 mins at 300. When I bake thick batter cakes I find the out crust can be too dark. 300 was perfectly baked. Will definitely make again. Read More
