Cinnamon Apple Bread

This densely soft Cinnamon Apple Bread is filled with fall flavor and packed with sweetened apples and walnuts. Serve this easy-to-make treat with breakfast or for a snack.

During apple season I’ll use any excuse to bake with apples, which is why I love preparing recipes such as Apple Crumble Muffins and Baked Apple Oatmeal, as well as this heart-warming quick bread.


Cinnamon Apple Bread

This cinnamon sweet bread is filled with fall essence and if the season had a taste this cake-like bread would be it. Softly sweetened apples and walnuts are folded into this dense bread that is also topped with a sugared walnut crumble.

Choosing a firm tart or firm sweet type of apple is the best option for this snack cake. I found a bundle of freshly delivered red delicious apples from my local grocer and they were just perfect. You also don’ need to choose just one type of apple. Mix them up if you prefer.

How to Make Apple Bread

The thing about quick bread, though they usually take about an hour to bake, the preparation is often simple and quick.

  • First prep your apples by peeling and chopping them and then chop your walnuts, if not already. Set them aside for later.
  • Mix all the dry ingredients into a large bowl and the wet into a separate bowl. Whisk the wet into the dry mix and then fold in the apples and half the walnuts.
  • Pour the batter into a prepared pan and sprinkle the top with a walnut brown sugar mixture. Bake for about 55 minutes and let cool before removing from the pan.

For a bold-flavored bread, there’s not much prep involved in making it.

Can You Freeze this Bread?

Yes, you can absolutely freeze this bread, and if you do I recommend doubling the recipe so you have two loaves. To freeze, wrap the completely cooled loaves in plastic and then cover with foil. Freeze and save for later. Thaw at room temperature to use.

  • 2 large Eggs room temperature
  • 1/2 cup Oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon Vanilla
  • 1 cup Apples chopped and peeled

  • Preheat the oven to 350 ℉. Grease an 8×4 loaf pan with oil or butter and coat with flour.

  1. Hi there
    This recipe might just be what I need for all these apples I was given.
    I do have one question however, what type of oil is used?
