Apple Cinnamon Bread

Apple Cinnamon Bread

cooking spray
2 cups all-purpose flour
6 Tbsp Splenda, granulated *
2½ tsp baking powder
½ tsp baking soda
1 tsp ground cinnamon
¼ tsp table salt
¼ tsp ground nutmeg
¾ cup low-fat buttermilk
¼ cup packed brown sugar
2 Tbsp reduced-calorie margarine, melted
¼ cup liquid egg whites or Eggbeaters
2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
1 tsp vanilla extract
1½ cup shredded apple, packed coarsely (Approx. 1 large apple)
2 tsp lemon zest, finely grated*

Preheat oven to 350ºF. Coat an 8-inch loaf pan (or 2 mini loaf pans) with cooking spray. Peel and shred apple. Grate lemon zest. Set aside. In a large bowl, combine dry ingredients: flour, Splenda, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, salt and nutmeg. Mix well with a fork and set aside. In a medium bowl, whisk together wet ingredients: buttermilk, brown sugar, margarine, liquid egg whites, lemon juice and vanilla extract. Stir in apples and lemon zest. Add wet mixture to dry ingredients and mix until just blended. Pour batter into prepared loaf pan (or 2 mini loaf pans) and bake until a wooden pick inserted near the center comes out clean, about 50 minutes. (Or, about 40 minutes for mini loaf pans.) Cool in pan, on a wire rack, for 10 minutes. Remove bread from pan and cool completely. Slice into 8-10 slices and serve.
