Apple Bread with Cinnamon Pecan Crunch


1 cup chopped toasted Dickey Farms pecans

1 3/4 cups all purpose flour

2 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon baking powder

2 eggs

3/4 cup sugar

1/3 cup vegetable oil

2 tablespoons applesauce

2 cups finely chopped peeled apples

1 tablespoon sugar (for sprinkling the top)

1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon


Preheat oven to 350°F and grease a loaf pan.

In a large bowl, mix together the flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt and baking powder.

In a medium bowl, mix together eggs, sugar, vegetable oil and applesauce.

Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix until incorporated. Fold in apples and 1/2 cup of pecans. Combine remaining pecans, sugar, and ground cinnamon; sprinkle over loaf.

Bake for 55-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the bread comes out clean. Invert to remove loaf as soon as possible and place on wire rack. Allow loaf to cool before cutting.
