Apple Pie Bread

The perfect way to celebrate the onset of the Thanksgiving season?  

Apple pie masquerading as bread. 

Usually I am weird about apples in baked goods, but they are amazing in this bread.  The caveat is that it needs to be eaten the day it's made.  Day-old baked goods made with apples taste like tin cans.

Sorry.  It's a fact.

Eating the loaf in one day won't be a problem, I promise. 

I love to use Braeburn apples for baking because they have a nice crisp apple flavor that really comes through.

Happy November!

Apple Pie Bread
Recipe slightly adapted from Lui in Cucina
-1/3 cup brown sugar
-1 teaspoon cinnamon
-2/3 cup white sugar
-1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
-2 eggs
-1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
-1 1/2 cups flour (6.75 oz)
-1 3/4 teaspoons baking powder
-1/4 tsp salt
-1/2 cup milk
-1 Braeburn apple, peeled and chopped well

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees, and grease a 9x5-inch loaf pan.

Mix the brown sugar and cinnamon together in a bowl.

With an electric mixer, beat together the white sugar and butter until smooth and creamy. Beat in eggs, one at a time, until incorporated.  Add vanilla.

Combine the flour, baking powder, and salt. Stir into the creamed butter mixture. Mix milk into batter until smooth. 

Pour half of the batter into the prepared pan; add half of the chopped apples and half of the brown sugar mixture. Lightly pat into batter. Pour the remaining batter over apple layer. Top with remaining apples and brown sugar mixture. Lightly pat into batter and swirl mixture throughout using a butter knife.

Bake at 350 degrees for 30-45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the loaf comes out clean.  Mine took 45 minutes. Cool on a wire rack before cutting.
