  • Stand mixer or electric hand mixer


Cinnamon Apple Bread

  • cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon flour (for coating the apples)
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • ½ cup light brown sugar
  • teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs (at room temperature)
  • ½ cup vegetable oil
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • cups chopped, peeled apples (about 2 apples)

Vanilla Glaze

  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla


To Make The Cinnamon Apple Bread

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease an 8 x 4 loaf pan or line with parchment paper.
  • In a medium bowl, combine the flour, cinnamon, baking soda and baking powder.
  • In another bowl, toss the apples with the 1 tablespoon of flour. This will stop them from sinking to the bottom of the bread.
  • In a stand mixer with the paddle attachment, mix together the eggs, oil, sugar and vanilla at high speed.
  • Lower the speed and slowly add the flour mixture to the wet mixture, until just combined. The mixture will be thick.
  • Gently fold in the apples.
  • Transfer the mixture to the greased pan. Bake for 45 - 55 minutes, until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. You may need to add foil to the top of the apple bread for the last 15 - 20 minutes so the top does not burn.
  • Allow pan to cool for 10 minutes before removing to a wire rack to fully cool.

To Make The Vanilla Glaze

  • Add all the ingredients to a bowl and whisk well. Pour over cooled apple bread loaf. Allow to set.
