  • 1/6 cup brown sugar packed
  • 1/6 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon divided
  • 2 cups white whole wheat flour can substitute with all-purpose
  • 1 Tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 1 cup milk of choice
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce


  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Generously grease or line a standard 9"x5" loaf pan and set aside.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the brown sugar, granulated sugar and 1 teaspoon of the cinnamon and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, and remaining 1 teaspoon of the cinnamon.
  • In a small bowl or measuring cup, mix together the egg, milk and applesauce.
  • Pour the applesauce mixture into the large bowl with the dry ingredients until no dry streaks remain. Do not over mix.
  • Transfer half of the batter into your prepared baking pan. Sprinkle about half of the cinnamon-sugar mixture on top. Add the last half of the batter on top. Use a knife to swirl the batter a bit. Sprinkle the remaining cinnamon-sugar mixture on top.
  • Bake in your preheated oven for 45-50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Allow the bread to cool slightly before serving.


Bread should be stored in an airtight container at room temperature or in the refrigerator and will keep for a few days. The topping might start to get soggy after a day.
