  • Nonstick cooking spray, for the pan
  • 1/3 cup light brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 2 apples (any kind), peeled and chopped
  • 2/3 cup plus 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 3/4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 cup plus 1 to 3 tablespoons milk or almond milk
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 9-by-5-inch loaf pan with nonstick spray or line with foil and spray with nonstick spray for easy removal.
  2. Mix brown sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon together in a bowl; set aside. Toss apples with 2 tablespoons granulated sugar and remaining teaspoon cinnamon in another bowl.
  3. Beat butter and remaining 2/3 cup granulated sugar together in another medium bowl with an electric mixer until smooth and creamy, about 5 minutes. Beat in eggs, 1 at a time, until blended in; add vanilla extract.
  4. Whisk flour and baking powder together in another bowl, then add to the creamed butter mixture and beat until blended. Mix 1/2 cup milk into the batter until smooth.
  5. Pour half the batter into the prepared loaf pan; add half the chopped apple mixture. Sprinkle half of the brown sugar/cinnamon mixture on top of the apple layer.
  6. Pour the remaining batter over the apple layer and top with remaining chopped apples, then the remaining brown sugar/cinnamon mixture. Lightly pat apples into batter; swirl the brown sugar mixture through apples using a knife or spoon.
  7. Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center of the loaf comes out clean, approximately 1 hour and 10 minutes.
  8. Mix powdered sugar with the remaining 1 to 3 tablespoons milk for a glaze, depending on preferred thickness. Let the loaf cool for about 15 minutes, then drizzle with glaze.
