2 cups all purpose flour
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar (light or dark)
1‑1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon allspice
1/4 cup neutral or light olive oil
scant 1/2 cup natural applesauce
2 large eggs
1 medium Granny Smith apple, peeled, cored, and cut into dice
2 medium Gala apples, peeled, cored and cut into medium dice
1/2 cup chopped toasted walnuts
1‑1/2 tablespoons sugar mixed with 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350°, center rack. Grease a straight-sided 9" x 13" baking pan.
In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugars, baking soda, salt and spices. In another bowl, whisk together the oil, applesauce and eggs. Add the wet ingredients, the apples and the walnuts to the dry ingredients, folding in with a spatula until everything is moistened and combined. This is very thick and very chunky – more apples to batter.
Spread an even layer in the prepared pan. Sprinkle with the cinnamon sugar. Bake 40-45 minutes or until clean in the center.
Let cool before cutting.
