Easy Little Apple Loaf

So my first ever Pop Up Lunch Club is coming up this weekend…

Am I nervous? Well, Yes. Excited, oh DEFINITELY!

If you are around London on sunday and fancy coming along, grab your tickets HERE…. There are just a few spaces left!

As a break from all my recipe testing, I decided to take the morning off and put my feet up. It just so happens that on the same morning, my mum got inspired by all the kitchen activity and decided to get cooking. Her deliciously moist apple bread came out of the oven at the exact moment the kettle stopped boiling… is that timing or what?!

As the recipe calls for cooking apples, which are much less sweet to the eating variety, she added a little more honey. If you use eating apples, feel free to reduce the sweetness to 1 tbs Honey, especially if you want to serve the loaf as a soup accompaniment. The recipe was inspired by Abel & Cole’s Apple Loaf – You can find the recipe on their website here.

Easy Little Apple Loaf Recipe

(Makes enough for 1 loaf tin)

  • 200g White Spelt Flour
  • 150g Wholegrain Spelt Flour
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Bicarbonate of Soda
  • 1 large Bramley Apple, peeled and coarsley grated
  • 50g Butter, melted
  • 2 tbsp Honey
  • 2 large Eggs, whisked
  • 250ml Apple Juice
  • A few handfuls of Seeds, scattered over the loaf before baking


Preheat oven to 180°C/Gas 4.
Grease the loaf tin with butter and coat with a dusting of flour
Combine dry ingredients in a large bowl. Fold in the grated apple and the wet ingredients.
Gently fold all the ingredients together, careful not to overmix.
Tip the batter into the tin and scatter the seeds over the top.
Bake for 50-60 mins, or until a knife inserted in the centre comes out clean.
Let it cool for 10-15 mins before serving or trying to remove from the pan.

After cutting ourselves a few thin slices, we popped them under the grill to get golden, then covered them liberally with butter and honey, before eating. It was pretty darn good. Maybe I should let mum cook more often when I’m home..

Twenty Something London and Supper Clubs London seem pretty excited about the event… if you need any more convincing.
