A light sprinkling of oats on top of the batter before baking tells people about the goodness within. This bread is moist and flavorful, and makes a great breakfast with a bit of cream cheese on top.
1 cup (7 ounces) sugar
2 large eggs
1/2 cup (3 1/2 ounces) vegetable oil
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla or boiled cider
1/2 cup (2 ounces) King Arthur 100% White Whole Wheat Flour
1 cup (4 1/4 ounces) King Arthur Unbleached All-Purpose Flour
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon allspice
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup (1 3/4 ounces) rolled oats
3/4 cup (5 ounces) applesauce
1/2 cup (2 ounces) chopped walnuts
In a large bowl, mix together the sugar, eggs, oil and vanilla. In a separate bowl, mix together the flours, baking powder and soda, and spices, and add them to the wet ingredients in the bowl. Mix in the oat flakes, applesauce, and walnuts.
Pour the mixture into a lightly greased 9 x 5-inch loaf pan, and bake in a preheated 350°F oven 55 to 60 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean when you test the bread. Remove the bread from the oven, and cool completely. Yield: 1 loaf.
