Apple Bread

  • 3 small Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored, and diced small (about 2 cups)
  • ½ cup (100 g) light brown sugar, packed
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • cup (133 g) granulated sugar
  • ½ cup (1 stick / 113 g) unsalted butter room temperature
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • ½ cup (122.5 g) whole milk, room temperature
  • 1 ½ cups (187.5 g) all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt


  • 1 cup (125 g) confectioners' sugar
  • 2-3 tablespoons whole milk


Apple Bread

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray a 9x5-inch loaf pan with nonstick cooking spray. Set aside.
  • To a medium bowl, add apples, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Mix well to coat the apples. Set aside.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer, mix together granulated sugar and butter until light and fluffy, about 2-3 minutes.
  • Add in eggs, vanilla, and milk. Mix on medium speed until fully incorporated.
  • Add in flour, baking powder, and salt and mix until just incorporated, scraping the sides of the bowl as needed.
  • Remove bowl from stand mixer. Fold in ¾ of the apples. (Reserve about ½ cup to pour on top.)
  • Pour into the prepared loaf pan.
  • Place remaining apples on top.
  • Bake for 65-70 minutes, or the internal temperature of the bread is 200°F. If you insert a toothpick it should be removed with crumbs but no wet batter.
  • Carefully remove the bread from the pan place on a wire rack.


  • In a small bowl, whisk together the sugar and milk, 1 tablespoon at a time, until you reach desired consistency.
  • Drizzle the glaze over the bread and serve.
