Instead of sprinkling with cinnamon sugar before baking, you could also add your favorite streusel topping to make this bread more like coffee cake. I like to serve it warm with applesauce. — Donna Goutermont, Sequim, Washington

  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup 2% milk
  • 1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon sugar, divided
  • 3 tablespoons canola oil
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon plus 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 3 medium tart apples, peeled and finely chopped


  1. Preheat oven to 350°. In a large bowl, beat eggs, milk, 1/2 cup sugar and the oil until well blended. Combine flour, baking powder, salt, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon and allspice; gradually beat into sugar mixture until blended. Fold in apples.
  2. Transfer to a well-seasoned 10-in. cast-iron or other ovenproof skillet. Sprinkle with remaining 1 tablespoon sugar and 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon. Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 35-40 minutes. Let cool 10 minutes; serve warm.
