When I read about the "fruitloaf" in the book Triss, my immediate first thought was of banana bread. I don't think bananas are a thing in Redwall, though, so I decided to take a similar approach with a different fruit puree -- applesauce. If you wanted, you could also add a cup of chopped apples or nuts, but I left it plain other than the spices.


Prep time: 5 minutes
Cook time: 40 minutes
Total time: 45 minutes

Yield: 1 loaf


  • 2 cups white whole wheat flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground allspice
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp ground cardamom
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 2 cups unsweetened applesauce
  • 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar

  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and spices in a medium bowl.
  3. Combine the milk, oil, applesauce, and vinegar in a large bowl.
  4. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and gently stir until just combined.
  5. Pour batter into a loaf pan lined with aluminum foil and bake for 35-40 minutes, or until golden brown.
