This oatmeal quick bread has three sources of apple–apple cider, applesauce, and diced apple–with just a hint of maple flavoring. It’s a one-bowl recipe that comes together fairly quickly and tastes great when served warm. Can also be served at room temperature.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease an 8 1/2 x 4 1/2-inch loaf pan and line the bottom with parchment paper.
Whisk apple cider, maple syrup, yogurt, applesauce, eggs, vegetable oil, vanilla extract, and maple extract together in a bowl until thoroughly combined. Mix in flour, oats, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, cardamom, salt, and nutmeg until incorporated. Fold in apples and walnuts. Pour batter into the prepared pan and tap the pan on the counter a few times to remove any air bubbles.
Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center of the bread comes out clean, 55 to 60 minutes. Allow bread to cool in the pan for 30 minutes. Gently run a knife around the edge of the pan to loosen and turn loaf out onto a wire rack to cool.

A dough’s first rising can be make in the fridge 24 hours . This slows down the time it takes to rise to double its size, giving it a deeper flavour. It’s also a great limit , as you can start it yesterday , then finish it off the next day.
