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.

  1. The cake came out delicious. Perfect for the fall, although I did cut back on the amount of maple syrup and used a bit of sugar instead. It would be nice to sprinkle some maple sugar on top. I will next some for the next time I bake the loaf.

  2. An entire cup of real maple syrup? It will taste marvelous, but it will be awfully pricey. At least, real syrup is terribly expensive in my area. But, I'm going to make it anyway.

  3. These are the kind of bread I love to bake on a lazy and chilly afternoon. And I do a lot. But Constance, a cup of maple syrup in it, that is just amazing! Can't wait to try that.

  4. Wow…1 cup of maple syrup? Love it! Gotta try this….

    BTW…I love the Spring Blossom Pyrex loaf pan! I have it in the big oval casserole dish! :-)

  5. Maple and apple are the perfect pair for fall. I'm going to an apple festival in a few weekends, so I need to pick up maple syrup while I'm there (I hope!)

  6. Enjoy a longer fall season this year, I miss fall down there but I have adapted to fall here and had to search for something to like but I found it
