Sharon's Story

Got this from a friend this weekend. I love cinnamon, so this is a new favorite for me. I love it just as written. Some people have made comments that they felt this is better with about 1/4- 1/2 teaspoon salt. It's your call. Make it yours.


1/3 c
brown sugar, not packed
1 tsp
cinnamon, ground
2/3 c
white sugar
1/2 c
butter, softened
1 1/2 tsp
vanilla extract
1 1/2 c
all purpose flour
1 3/4 tsp
baking powder
1/2 c
applel, peeled and chopped

Directions Step-By-Step

Preheat oven to 350. Grease and flour a 9x5 inch loaf pan. Mix brown sugar and cinnamon together in a bowl and set aside. Beat white sugar and butter together in a bowl using an electric mixer intil smooth and creamy. Beat in eggs, one at a time, until uncorporated; add vanilla extract.
Combine flour and baking powder together in another bowl; stir into creamed butter mixture. Mix milk into batter until smooth. Pour half the batter into the prepared loaf pan. Next add half the apple and half the brown sugar cinnamon mixture. lightly pat apple mixture into batter.
Pour remaining batter over apple layer; top with remaining apple and add more brown sugar cinnamon mixture. Lightly pat apples into batter; swirl brown sugar mixture through apples using finger or spoon.
Bake 40-50 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in center of the loaf comes out clean. (Cooking time may vary, one report of 60 minutes)

I made this recipe last year and had made a note to add an extra shredded apple the next time I made it. Did that yesterday and it was excellent! Never looked at all of the comments on this one before, either!! Anyway ... it really makes a most and delicious loaf!!

This was so yummy! I chose this recipe because I had a bunch of apples that we picked from a local orchard. I think I will make more for the freezer and for friends:-). I also noticed it was shared by a Whitley (my maiden name), so I figured it must be good;-)
