  • 3 baking apples (I used Pink Lady apples) peeled and diced into rough ½ inch squares and tossed in
  • 2 tbsp granulated white sugar
  • 1 tbsp light brown sugar
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • ½ tsp ground allspice
  • c light brown sugar
  • c white sugar (I used baker’s sugar but granulated white is fine, too)
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • ½ c butter (1 stick), softened to room temperature
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • ½ c whole milk
  • ½ c all-purpose white flour
  • 1 ½ tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp baking soda
  • ¼ tsp kosher salt


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Grease 9x5-inch loaf pan with non-stick baking spray or butter.
  • Peel and dice apples into ½ inch cubes and toss with 2 tbsp white sugar, 1 tbsp light brown sugar, ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon, and ½ teaspoon ground allspice. Set aside.
  • Mix brown sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl and set aside.
  • In another bowl, cream the white sugar and butter together, using an electric mixer.
  • Beat eggs into the creamed butter and sugar, one at a time, until thoroughly blended.
  • Add vanilla extract and milk to the butter, egg, and sugar mixture, ensuring they are also thoroughly blended.
  • Sift flour, baking powder, and baking soda together and then whisk together thoroughly.
  • Add dry mixture to the wet mixture and beat until the batter is smooth.
  • Pour half of the batter into the prepared loaf pan, then tap the sides of the pan to settle any bubbles.
  • Add half of the apple mixture and then half of the cinnamon sugar mixture, then lightly pat into the batter.
  • Pour the remaining batter over apple & cinnamon sugar layers.
  • Top with the remaining apple mixture, then the remaining cinnamon sugar mixture, and then lightly pat into the batter again.
  • Take a wooden skewer and swirl the apple and cinnamon sugar mixtures through the batter by drawing 3 ‘figure-8s’ across the loaf pan as demonstrated in the images.
  • Bake bread in the preheated oven until a wooden skewer inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean, between 55-65 minutes.
  • Let cool in pan before removing. Slice immediately before serving with vanilla ice cream or unsweetened whipped heavy cream.
  • Enjoy!
