Author Notes

A moist and delicious apple yogurt loaf made with whole wheat and minimal fat! I love making mini loaves for easy sharing, but this recipe can also be used in a regular loaf pan. This loaf tastes better after thoroughly cooled or the next day. —JC

What You'll Need
  • 1 1/2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
  • 2/3 cup greek yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons sugar (turbinado or granulated)
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 2 small apples (golden delicious recommended)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg (optional)
  • 1/4 teaspoon ginger (optional)
  1. Peel, core, and thinly slice apples. Set aside.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the wet ingredients (eggs, oil, yogurt, brown sugar, milk, and vanilla extract).
  3. In another bowl, combine the dry ingredients (flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, baking soda, salt).
  4. Fold in the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, then gently fold in a portion of the apples (save some slices for topping). Top the remaining slices on top of the loaf, then sprinkle with turbinado sugar.
  5. Bake for 350 degrees for about 35 minutes for mini loaves (60-70 minutes for a regular loaf), or until toothpick inserted comes out clean. Let cool completely and serve! I recommend serving it after a few hours or the next day, since the cake can be too moist at first.

I'm in the middle of making this recipe as it sounds perfect for a chilly October day. However, in the directions it calls for nutmeg and ginger and there is no mention of either in the ingredients list. So I'll just do my best to guess how much of both to add and hope it turns out ok!

Ah my mistake of omitting the nutmeg and ginger in the ingredients list! These are optional, I would just add a small amount of each (1/4 teaspoon or so)!

I actually added that exact amount! And it turned out BEAUTIFULLY. Thank you for such an inspired, easy, and enjoyable recipe! Will definitely be adding this to my recipe arsenal.
