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)

Made this yummy loaf about a year ago. Just saw my notes I had made to remind myself how well this turned out and enjoyed by my family and friends. The next day there wasn't a crumb left. I used 1/2 a Granny Smith (my husband ate the other half:) and 1 red apple. I added a tsp more cinnamon & a handful of raisins. Thanks for posting this fantastic Apple Cinnamon Loaf recipe!

i forgot to add -- i got all the way to "pouring" half into the loaf pan, adding the cinnamon/sugar and apples...and realized there was no way this was right.. then i realized i forgot the milk!! so i put it back in the bowl and added milk .. and it still turned out delicious :)
