 There is always something to be thankful for… like cinnamon and spice and everything apple!



  • 2 baking apples (Honeycrisps or McIntosh)

  • 1 ½ cups apple cider

  • ½ cup butter, melted

  • 1 cup granulated sugar

  • 2 eggs

  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract

  • 1 ½ cup all-purposed flour

  • 1 tsp. baking soda

  • ½ tsp. salt

  • 1 tsp. cinnamon

  • 1/8 tsp. nutmeg

  • ½ cup plain Greek yogurt


  • 1 cup apple cider

  • ½ cup powdered sugar


  • ½ cup granulated sugar

  • 1 tsp. cinnamon


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F
  • Core and slice the apples. Cook the apples and 1 ½ cups of apple cider in a saucepan covered over medium heat until the apples are soft, about 8-10 minutes. Uncover and simmer for another 10-15 minutes.
  • Use a blender to puree the apples and apple cider. You should have about 1 cup of apple sauce. (If you have more return it to the sauce pan and continue to cook – if you reduce too much add water until you reach 1 cup) Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, mix together melted butter and sugar. Add the eggs and vanilla and mix well.
  • In a medium bowl combined flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg and add to the butter mixture. Mix until smooth
  • Fold in apple sauce and yogurt
  • Pour batter into a loaf pan and bake 55-60 minutes (for 8 mini loafs bake 30 minutes) or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  • Allow to cool on a cooling rack.
Glaze and Topping:
  • Simmer 1 cup of apple cider in a sauce pan over medium heat. Reduce to ¼ cup. Sift in powder sugar and whisk glaze until smooth.
  • In a small bowl, combine ½ cup sugar and 1 tsp. cinnamon. Pour sugar mixture onto a piece or parchment paper or plate big enough for the loaf to be dipped in.
  • Remove cooled bread from pan and spread a thin layer of apple cider glaze onto the loaf
  • Turn the bread upside and dip the glaze into the sugar mixture
  • Slice and enjoy!
