Apple Loaf, September 2023.
September is apple picking season! New York State is loaded with different varieties, so orchards are filled with city folk getting bushels of sweet and tart apples
This is my favorite recipe for the tart apples. And, it’s vegan!
- 1 small tart apple (like Granny Smith), peeled, cored and finely chopped. About ¾ cup
- ½ cup and 2 teaspoons cane sugar
- 1 and ¼ teaspoons ground nutmeg
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- ¾ cup whole wheat flour
- ¾ teaspoon baking soda
- ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
- Pinch of salt
- ¾ cup unsweetened applesauce
- ½ cup canola oil
- ¼ cup agave syrup
- ¼ teaspoon apple cider vinegar
- 1 tablespoon demerara sugar (optional)
- Grease a loaf pan (8” x 4”) with canola oil or vegan cooking spray.
- Dust the pan with flour and tap out the excess.
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
- Put the apple pieces in a medium sized bowl and toss with 2 teaspoons cane sugar and ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg.
- Sift the flours, baking soda, cinnamon, salt and remaining nutmeg into a large bowl.
- In another medium bowl, whisk together the applesauce, oil, agave, vinegar and the rest of the cane sugar.
- Pour the applesauce mixture into the flour bowl and mix until well combined.
- Stir in the apple chunks.
- Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan.
- Sprinkle with demerara sugar, if desired.
- Bake 60-65 minutes.
- The top and edges should be golden and a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean or with only crumbs.
- Cool for at least one hour before cutting.
- 8-12 pieces depending on how thick you cut.
