Glazed Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal Bread

Glazed Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal Bread - soft and moist, and bursting with apple flavor. No mixer required!

My mom is one of my best taste testers. She’s pretty good about being honest with me, and I’ve even got a few “not my favorite” or “little too sweet for me” when I have brought something over for her to try. We all need those people in our lives, right? The kind of friend who will tell you when your eyebrows need attention, or you have basil in your teeth. I promise I’ll be the first to tell you if you ever fit into either of these categories, okay?

Because the applesauce I used to make this amazing Glazed Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal Bread came from my mom which she made from her very own apple tree, I really wanted to give her some of this bread to try. So I ran some over (she lives 2 minutes away from me). After she tasted it, she said, “This is OUTSTANDING!”

So there you go, it’s mom approved. And yes, it is apple picking time here. We are seasonally confused here in sunny old AZ.

You’ll looove the glaze we’ve got going on here. I completely ADORE glazes on sweet breads. Keeps them so moist and just really takes them to the next level of yummy-liciousness. I just checked and that’s not a real word, unless you hyphenate it… so we’re good!

Glazed Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal Bread
Author: 
Serves: 2 loaves
 
Ingredients:
  • 1 3/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • 1/2 cup plain nonfat Greek yogurt
  • 1 cup applesauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Glaze
  • 2/3 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup applesauce
Directions:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees, and grease two loaf pans. I used two 1.5 quart Pyrex glass loaf pans.
  2. In a large bowl, mix by hand flour, oats, salt, cinnamon, and baking powder. Set aside.
  3. In another bowl, mix sugar, oil, eggs, yogurt, applesauce, and vanilla, then stir into dry ingredients by hand until just combined.
  4. Divide batter between the two loaf pans and bake for 43-45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  5. Remove from the oven and whisk together the powdered sugar and applesauce for the glaze.
  6. When the bread has cooled for a bit, remove from the pan onto a cooling rack and spoon the glaze over the top. Allow the glaze to set before slicing.

    This looks absolutely lovely!! Of course, anything mom approved must be good :) I’m definitely going to have to try this. I don’t usually glaze any of my breads, but I think I’m going to have to make an exception!!
