  • 1/3 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2/3 cup white granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup salted butter softened
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 ½ teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 ¾ teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 cup milk (I use 2% milk)
  • 2 Granny Smith apples, peeled then chopped
  • 2 Tablespoons granulated sugar + 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon mixed together
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons milk more or less depending on thickness of glaze wanted


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 9x5-inch loaf pan with non-stick spray.
    (Or you can line pan with foil then spray with non-stick spray for easier removal.)
  • Mix the brown sugar and cinnamon together in a small bowl. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, beat white sugar and butter together, using an electric mixer, until smooth and creamy.
    Beat in eggs, one at a time, until blended in; add vanilla extract.
  • In a separate bowl, combine flour and baking powder together with a whisk, then slowly pour this mixture into the butter mixture. Stir until blended.
    Slowly mix milk into the batter until smooth.
  • Pour half the batter evenly into the prepared loaf pan; then top evenly with half the chopped apples. Sprinkle half of the brown sugar/cinnamon mixture evenly over the apples.
  • Lightly pat apples into batter.
    Pour the remaining batter over the apple layer, then top batter evenly with remaining apples, then sprinkle remaining brown sugar/cinnamon mixture.
  • Lightly pat apples into batter; swirl brown sugar mixture through apples using knife or spoon.
    Bake, uncovered, for 50 to 60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of loaf comes out clean.
  • To make glaze: mix powdered sugar and milk together until combined.
    Let bread cool for at least 15 minutes before drizzling with glaze. Slice, serve and enjoy!
