Dense and Hearty Apple Pumpkin Bread

Recipe by hellokitty

My own recipe, made for a filling, healthy breakfast or anytime you need a quick, healthy snack. Dice the apples according to how you like them, make them small if you don't like tasting big pieces of apple in your breads. Use 2 large eggs if you like the bread moister and melty. Otherwise 1 large egg will get you a very dense bread.

Awesome! This is a hearty recipe that goes well with coffee and keeps you full for hours. My only change to the recipe is the cooking duration. I had to cook it for 50 minutes. <br/><br/>I love the fact that it used brown sugar instead of white. Next time I'm thinking about adding walnuts.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Grease one 9x5 loaf pan.
  3. Combine cinnamon, baking soda, flour and salt in a bowl, set aside.
  4. Combine egg, pumpkin, sugar, water, applesauce and oil in another bowl, beat until blended (but don't blend too finely).
  5. Add the wet mixture to the dry mixture, stir in until just blended.
  6. Fold in the diced apples gently.
  7. Carefully spoon mixture into loaf pan.
  8. Bake for 35 minutes or until toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean. (I have a small oven so it takes a shorter time to bake).
  9. Cool and enjoy. I like my bread sliced and hot, with melted honey spooned onto it or with fat free cream cheese spread.
