Y'all the air is crispy outside! Pumpkins and mum's are everywhere! While I might not be a pumpkin spice girl, I am 100% a lover of all things fall including Mabon. With less than a week until the Mabon/autumn equinox I grabbed my giant book of recipes (Pinterest) and began my search of the Mabon dessert of my dreams and look what I found!
Are you drooling yet? Because I am! I found this lovely delicious looking recipe on Pinterest and it was created by living with the seasons.

9x5 loaf pan
knife or mandolin
1 cup All purpose flour
1 cup Whole wheat flour
2 tsp Apple pie spice OR pumpkin pie spice
1 tsp Baking powder
1/2 tsp Baking soda
3/4 tsp Salt
3/4 cup Granulated sugar
2 Large Eggs
1/2 cup Plain yogurt
3/4 cup Sunflower oil or any neutral flavored oil
1 tsp Vanilla extract
2 Small Apples try gala, Fuji, or granny smith
2 tbsp Light brown sugar (Optional for topping)
11/2 tbsp Butter (Optional for topping)
11/2 tbsp Half and half (Optional for topping)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Whisk the all purpose flour and the whole wheat flour together until combined.
Whisk the apple pie spice, baking soda, baking powder, and salt into the blended flour mixture. Set aside.
In a separate bowl, whisk the eggs and granulated sugar until creamy.
Add the yogurt and vanilla extract to the egg mixture and stir until combined. Next, add in the sunflower oil to the egg mixture and whisk until well incorporated, about 30 seconds.
Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, and stir until just combined. Set aside.
Grate one apple, and cut the remaining apple in half. Slice as desired to add as a decorative topping for the bread. Any remaining apple can be grated and added to the batter.
Fold the grated apple mixture into the batter until combined.
Pour the batter into a prepared 9x5 loaf pan, and top with decorative apple slices as desired.
Bake the bread at 350 degrees F for 50-60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Let the bread cool in the pan for 10 min, then remove from pan and transfer to a wire rack to cool. Cool completely about 1 hour.
To make the brown sugar glaze topping: Heat the brown sugar and butter in a small saucepan on medium heat until the sugar melts, about 1 minute. Add the half and half and stir. Bring the mixture to a simmer. Remove the mixture from heat and stir until thickened, about 2 minutes. Drizzle over the top of the bread and serve!
