This apple cinnamon bread is the ultimate winter coffee cake for a cold morning. It is super easy and it can last in your fridge for up to 1 week.
Course: Dessert
Cuisine: American
Keyword: apple cinnamon bread
Servings: 6 slices
  • 100 gr brown sugar
  • 110 gr white sugar
  • 2 apples (note 1)
  • 160 gr flour
  • 1 ½ tsp baking powder
  • 50 ml milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 60 gr room temperature butter
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp nutmeg
  • Raw sliced almonds (optional but highly recommended)
  1. Preheat the oven to 200ºC (400ºF).
  2. In a bowl mix the brown sugar with the cinnamon and the nutmeg. Divide this mix into two equal parts.
  3. Peel off the apples and cut into medium size bites (you can see the picture above). MIx the apple pieces with one part of the brown sugar mix. Make sure that the apples are well coated.
  4. In a big bowl mix the butter with the white sugar and using a mixer combine well. Then add the vanilla, the eggs, and the milk. Mix until you get a homogeneous batter.
  5. Sift the flour and the baking powder to combine. Then add it slowly to the batter using a spatula while folding slowly.
  6. Incorporate the apples into the batter. Then pour the batter into the greased loaf mold. Cover with the rest of the brown sugar mixture and sprinkle as many almonds as you want. Take it to the oven for 45 minutes.
Recipe Notes
  1. I like to use pink lady apples. You can use either granny smith for an acidic and fresh result or Jonagold for a sweeter result.
