- 1/3 cup light brown sugar
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- 2/3 cup white sugar
- 1/2 cup butter, softened
- 2 farm fresh eggs
- 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 3/4 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 cup milk (full fat)
- 2 apples, peeled and chopped (any kind), mixed with 2 tbls granulated sugar and 1 tsp cinnamon
1Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Use a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan (or 2 mini-loaf pans) and spray with non-stick spray or line with foil and spray with non-stick spray to get out easily for slicing.
2Mix brown sugar and cinnamon together in a bowl. Set aside.
3In another medium-sized bowl, beat white sugar and butter together using an electric mixer until smooth and creamy. Beat in eggs, 1 at a time, until blended in; add in vanilla extract. Combine & whisk flour and baking powder together in another bowl and add into creamed butter mixture and stir until blended. Mix milk into batter until smooth.
4Pour half the batter into the prepared loaf pan; add half the apple mixture, then half the brown sugar/cinnamon mixture.
5Lightly push apple mixture into batter.
6Pour the remaining batter over apple layer and top with remaining apple mixture, then the remaining brown sugar/cinnamon mixture.
7Lightly push apples into batter; swirl brown sugar mixture through apples using knife or spoon.
8Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center of the loaf comes out clean, approximately 50-60 minutes.
