Step 1

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Use a 9x5-inch loaf pan and spray with non-stick spray or line with foil and spray with non-stick spray to get out easily for slicing.

Step 2

Mix brown sugar and cinnamon together in a bowl. Set aside.

Step 3

In another medium-sized bowl, beat white sugar and butter together using an electric mixer until smooth and creamy.

Step 4

Beat in eggs, 1 at a time, until blended in; add in vanilla extract.

Step 5

Combine & whisk flour and baking powder together in another bowl and add into creamed butter mixture and stir until blended.

Step 6

Mix milk into batter until smooth.

Step 7

Pour half the batter into the prepared loaf pan; add half the chopped apple mixture.

Step 8

Sprinkle 1/2 of the brown sugar/cinnamon mixture you set aside earlier, on top of apple layer.

Step 9

Pour the remaining batter over apple layer and top with remaining chopped apples, then the remaining brown sugar/cinnamon mixture.

Step 10

Lightly pat apples into batter; swirl brown sugar mixture through apples using knife or spoon.

Step 11

Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center of the loaf comes out clean, approximately 50-60 minutes.

Step 12

To make glaze, mix powdered sugar and cream together until well mixed.

Step 13

Let cool for about 15 minutes before drizzling with glaze.

Tips & Variations

  • Next time I think I would add in walnuts. You can always use other fruit, or you could add in chocolate chips too! (Of course!)
  • Substitutions: I've also substituted this with 1/2 cup Greek Yogurt, 1/3 cup milk and add 1/4 teaspoon baking soda instead of 1/2 cup milk as called out in the bread loaf ingredients.
  • Bake 30-40 min. for 2 loaf recipe, 15-20 minutes for muffins or 50 -60 minutes for one full loaf recipe or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
