This bread is the result of having no idea what to make for breakfast + having no idea what to make for breakfast. The original recipe called for whole wheat flour, so I thought I would substitute in some einkorn flour! I really LOVE einkorn and all the health benefits, but the taste of it is one that takes some getting used to, so I “sneak” it in where I can :).
The result was this bread actually tasting like a little loaf of coffee cake, it was sooooo yummy! Einkorn generally needs the moisture levels to be a little lower, but since I did half einkorn and half AP flour, it just worked like magic. The crumb was just perfectly moist enough without being too dense, and the apple flavor was AMAZING and perfectly balanced, not being too in the background, or too overwhelming. Overall, I was extremely happy with the outcome, and very sad to see it was all gone today!!
You want to start off by greasing a loaf pan, or by lining it with parchment paper.
Next, you’ll stir together the chopped apple, brown sugar and cinnamon and set aside. After the apples, you will whisk together all of the dry ingredients in a separate bowl and set aside. Once you have finished with the dry ingredients, you will combine all of the topping ingredients and cut the butter in until it is pretty well combined with the oatmeal (we aren’t going for big chunks in this one), and set that bowl aside. Lastly, in the bowl of a stand mixer, you will want to combine the yogurt, applesauce, and honey until thoroughly combined, then add in the eggs and vanilla, and finally add in the melted butter slowly.
Once you have added in the butter, add in the dry ingredients on low until combined. Fold in the apple mixture, until it is distibuted throughout. Dump batter into prepared loaf pan and sprinkle topping over batter. Bake for 50-60 minutes, and allow to cool at least 10 minutes before serving.
