  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 1 ½ teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 2 large eggs room temperature
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup butter melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 ½ cups all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups chopped apples Pink Lady, Gala, Honeycrisp - any apples that are good for baking, peeled and chopped, about 2 apples


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease and flour an 8 x 5 inch loaf pan or line with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together brown sugar and cinnamon and set aside.
    ½ cup brown sugar, 1 ½ teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • Whisk eggs and granulated sugar together in a large mixing bowl.
    2 large eggs
  • Whisk in melted butter and vanilla extract until thoroughly combined.
    ½ cup granulated sugar
  • Stir in all purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt just until combined. The batter will be very thick. Fold in chopped apples.
    ½ cup butter, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, 1 ½ cups all purpose flour
  • Add half of the batter to the prepared loaf pan. Sprinkle about three quarters of the brown sugar mixture on top of the batter.
  • Spread the remaining batter carefully on top of the brown sugar mixture. Sprinkle remaining brown sugar mixture on top and use a knife or spoon to gently swirl it into the top layer.
  • Bake for 35 to 45 minutes or until lightly golden on top and an inserted toothpick comes out clean or with just a few moist crumbs. (If bread is browning too quickly, tent with foil for the last 10 to 15 minutes.)
  • Let bread cool completely before slicing and serving.
