Celebration Apple Bread!

Apple Bread | Garlic My SoulTwo of our fave friends (Hi, J and M!) recently graduated from their Masters program to become librarians (I know, they’re the coolest) so to celebrate, we went out for gluten free dinner, then made a delicious NOT gluten free apple cake for dessert.Apple Bread | Garlic My SoulBasically, J requested something with apples, and Ana said, “You must make this apple bread.” And proceeded to send us the recipe immediately, which we made immediately, and folks, we have stumbled upon something amazing.

Now, I know that apples aren’t in season, but this was a special occasion. If you’re a seasonal eater, you’ll have to wait another couple of months, but trust me, it’ll be worth it – just throw it on your “Autumn” Pinterest board, and dig it out come September.

Oven Temperature: 325
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 1 hour


1 1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce
3 eggs
1 1/3 cups sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 cups apples, diced (we used 1 and a half Granny Smith apples)
3 cups flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt


1. Combine and set aside the oil (applesauce), eggs, sugar, and vanilla.
2. Sift flour, cinnamon, soda, and salt. Add dry ingredients to oil mixture gradually. Add apples.
3. Spray or butter pan, and bake in a 13 x 9 pan for about an hour.
4. Cool for fifteen minutes, then serve with vanilla ice cream for a real treat!

    This looks good! Just wondering, did you grease and flour the pan, or spray with cooking spray, or just poured the batter in a pan w/nothing in it? Let me know, so I can make it right–thanks!

      Hi Dee! Thanks for your question. We actually updated the post to include this – thanks for catching it! We sprayed the pan with olive oil spray, but you can butter it if you feel like it. Either way we didn’t flour it, so no need to do that!

      Hope that helps, good luck!
