Vegan Mofo: Apple Spice Loaf

14 Oct

14.10.2008

Today was another beautiful fall day (unlike yesterday) and had me wanting to do something with the apples picked on my Thanksgiving adventure I had the other day. The first thing I thought of was an Apple Spice Loaf. I’m unsure why because I have never had such or loaf or if it even existed. So I looked around until I found one that sounded good and tweaked it to my liking.

Apple Spice Loaf

I ended up using my recipe for Cinnamon Swirl Loaf, and changed the streusal recipe to one I found in this recipe.  It was very good, it develops a bit of a crust over a tender and cake-like loaf. The streusal was wonderful and so easy to make too (you know how streusal can sometimes get too dry or too oily? well this one was just right).

Apple Spice Loaf

1 cup soymilk
1 tbs apple cider vinegar
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup canola oil
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 soy yogurt (I used So Nice’s Orginal)

For the Apple-Cinnamon Streusal:

1 cup flour
1/2 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup earth balance, melted
1 apple, peeled and diced

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and lightly grease a loaf pan.

1. In a small bowl, combine the soymilk and the apple cider vinegar. Set aside so it gets all nice and curdly.
2. In another small bowl, combine all of the streusal ingredients and set aside.
3. In a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
4. In a separate large bowl, beat together the canola oil, sugar and soy yogurt.
5. Add the flour mixture, along with the soymilk/vinegar to the sugar mixture in batches. (I did this in three batches)
6. Add 1/2 of the batter to loaf pan and then sprinkle with the Apple-Cinnamon Streusal. Add remaining of the batter and top with the remaining of the streusal.
7. Bake for 45-50 minutes until a toothpick or a knife is inserted into the loaf comes out clean.

Enjoy!

    Sounds like a great recipe, but what’s ‘earth balance’ please? I’m English, living in France

    Hey Hilary! Earth Balance is a vegan margarine, do you have acess to any sort of vegan margarine in France? Oil might work as a replacement but I haven’t tried it! :-)
