  • 1½ tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • ¾ tsp. salt
  • 1¼ cups unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/3 cup oil

  • 1/3 cup whipping cream
  • ½ cup cream cheese
  • 2 Tbsp. of lightly beaten egg

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare loaf pan with cooking spray.

Dough: In a large bowl combine flour, oatmeal, brown sugar, granulated sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Mix with a whisk until the mixture is well blended; set aside.

In a separate bowl combine the applesauce, milk, oil, and eggs. Mix with a whisk until well blended; set aside until you make the filling.

Filling: In another bowl combine the cream cheese, egg, honey, and vanilla; mix together. Add the confectioners’ sugar and flour. Mix with an electric mixer until the cream cheese becomes smooth; set aside.

Now go back to the bowls for the dough and pour the liquid mixture into the flour mixture. Stir with a wooden spoon until blended. Pour half of the mixture into a prepared loaf pan. Pour the cream cheese filling into the pan and spread over the dough. Now pour the rest of the dough over the top and set aside.

Topping: Combine the pecans, brown sugar, and cinnamon and sprinkle over the bread dough.

Bake for 55-60 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to rest for 10 minutes before removing from the pan. Cool completely on a wire rack.
