There’s something so comforting about the smell of warm cinnamon and apples baking in the kitchen and this easy apple cinnamon bread recipe will fill your house of sweet Fall scents. YW.

If you have ever asked yourself, what can I make with bulk apples? –because you were feeling a little excited on your last costco trip and now your counter is overflowing with fruit– because I have. In fact, I asked myself that very question just last week.

I was inspired to make this recipe not just for my love of apple baked goods but my love for Apple Crumble Pie Bars that I made a couple months ago.

Ingredients For This Apple Bread Recipe

  • apples – I prefer Granny Smith apples for tartness but whatever type of apple you prefer, will work in this recipe!
  • organic sugars – organic light brown sugar, organic cane sugar, organic powdered sugar are used in this recipe.
  • all purpose flour – For the ultimate fluffiness, use an all purpose flour. This recipe hasn’t been tested with gluten-free baking flour so proceed at your own risk.
  • almond milk – any plant based milk will work here
  • vegan butter – for a buttery cake flavor, don’t sub this ingredient but if needed, oil will work
  • apple sauce – since there’s no eggs in this recipe, I used applesauce to help bind the ingredients together
  • cinnamon, nutmeg and salt – all help to enhance the flavors
  • baking powder – this acts as a rising agent so the loaf is fluffy and light.

Let’s make the best ever vegan apple fritter bread!

Let’s get baking!

How to Make Apple Bread

  • Start by preparing the apples. Wash and peel apples and then chop them into half inch cubes and then toss them in cane sugar and cinnamon, set aside.
  • Next, make the brown sugar filling by stirring together the brown sugar and cinnamon, set aside.
  • To make the loaf cake, whisk together all the wet ingredients. In another bowl, stir together the dry ingredients and then add them together. Whisk just until no spots remain–try not to over mix.
  • Assemble this apple bread recipe by pour half of the cake loaf batter into a prepared loaf pan. Top with half of the brown sugar cinnamon filling and half of the apple mixture. Use a knife to swirl the ingredients into the batter just slightly. Top with remaining batter, brown sugar cinnamon mixture and apples. Swirl the apples into the batter just slightly and then bake for 55-65 minutes and toothpick comes out clean when inserted into the center.
  • Finish and enjoy. Once the bread has cooled, drizzle with glaze and serve.
