- Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly grease a 9” x 5” loaf pan with butter or oil and line with parchment paper. In a medium bowl, use a large mixing spoon to cream together sugar and butter until fully combined.
- Stir the applesauce and eggs into the butter mixture until thoroughly combined, about 5 minutes. Add flours, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt, and stir until just combined. Fold the apple slices into the batter—and, if you desire, reserve a couple of slices to place on to the top of the loaf. Pour the batter into the prepared pan (and press the reserved apple slices on to the top of the cake for a pretty (and easy!) decoration). Bake until the top is golden brown and a tester in the center comes out clean, 55 minutes to 1 hour. Let cool completely in the pan before turning out.
- Handy hint: To ensure that the apple slices don't sink all the way to the bottom, reserve a tablespoon of white flour to toss with the slices before they're folded into the batter. The flour will adhere to the batter while baking to keep the fruit from falling.
