As I sit here and type this, Alabama is finally giving me the tiniest hint of Autumn making its way here. This quick bread is lightly sweet, and is perfect with your coffee on a cool Autumn morning.
To begin, preheat your oven to 325 degrees. Grease a 5×9 loaf pan, and set it aside.
In a bowl, combine 1 3/4 c all-purpose flour, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, 3/4 tsp baking soda, 1.2 tsp salt, and 1/2 tsp baking powder. Stir it together and set it aside.
Dice a Granny Smith apple into 1/2 inch pieces, discarding the core.
In you mixing bowl, beat together one egg, a cup of real maple syrup, and 1/4 c vegetable (or extra virgin olive) oil.
Add in your dry ingredients, and mix until combined.
Fold in your apples, along with 1/3 cup chopped pecans.
Spread the batter in your loaf pan. Bake in for 50-60 minutes or until it tests done in the center with a toothpick.
Cool the bread in the pan for about 10-15 minutes.
Run a knife around the sides, and remove it to cool…or enjoy it warm!
