Apple-Cinnamon Loaf

This is a light fruity loaf that is not too sweet but still ticks all the boxes for a special treat!

500ml flour
125ml sugar
7,5ml baking powder
2,5ml bicarbonate of soda
2,5ml salt
5ml ground cinnamon
250ml buttermilk
1 egg
62ml vegetable oil
250ml dried apple, diced
125ml pecan nuts, chopped

Preheat your oven to 180℃ and line a 23cm X 13cm loaf tin.
Add the flour, sugar, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda, salt and cinnamon to a mixing bowl and mix together with a whisk.
Add the buttermilk, egg and vegetable oil to a wide-mouth jug and whisk together until blended.
Pour the liquid ingredients into the dry ingredients. Stir until all the flour has been incorporated and you are left with a shaggy, wet batter.
Add the chopped apple and nuts and stir through.
Scrape the batter into the prepared loaf tin and pat it into the corners.
Place the loaf in the oven and bake for 50 minutes.
Remove from the oven and allow the loaf to cool in the pan for 15 minutes before removing.
Place on a cooling rack to cool completely.
Dust with icing sugar and serve.
