Applesauce Oatmeal Bread with Allspice Crumble

Hello friends!

Our warm and cozy instincts rev up at the first sign of autumn.  We can’t wait to pull out our comfy sweaters and revisit classic flavors (hello apples, pumpkin, cinnamon, and allspice).  This applesauce oatmeal bread gives us all the flavors of fall that we crave in a quick bread.

This tender, moist quick bread is scented by cinnamon and allspice, giving a warm toasty flavor.  Sweetened from both brown sugar and crisp juicy apples makes a perfect base for its crumbly oatmeal-allspice topping.  Baked in a bread that strikes fall’s perfect notes of tart-sweetness and tender-crispness.

Taste of bit of fall!
