Apple Cinnamon Loaf Cake

I saw this recipe for Apple Cinnamon Bread floating around Facebook one day and decided I had to try it. With fall in the air I could just smell the Apple's cooking staring at my computer screen. I actually followed the recipe that is listed below that I found on Facebook. I also traced it back to this blog Luicucina where they call it an Apple Cinnamon White Cake. It is really more like a cake then bread. It was easy to make. My two year old son even had fun helping me make it. The only problem I had with the recipe was the end where it says to swirl the cinnamon around the apples. I was clueless with what to do so I just swirled the cinnamon and apples into the batter some. I had to cook it a few minutes longer then it said. But overall I give this recipe a thumbs up it was really tasty and looked great too!

Do you have any fall recipes that you cant live without? Or something that just sounds so yummy you want to try? Let me know in the comments or send me a link! I would love to try some more fall recipes.

Apple Cinnamon Loaf Cake

1/3 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2/3 cup white sugar
1/2 cup butter, better if softened
2 eggs
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 3/4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 cup milk
1 apple, peeled and chopped

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan. Mix brown sugar and cinnamon together in a bowl and set aside. Beat white sugar and butter together in a bowl using an electric mixer until smooth and creamy. Beat in eggs, 1 at a time, until incorporated; add vanilla extract.

Combine flour and baking powder together in another bowl; stir into creamed butter mixture. Mix milk into batter until smooth. Pour half the batter into the prepared loaf pan. Next add half the apples and half the brown sugar cinnamon mixture. Lightly pat apple mixture into batter.

Pour the remaining batter over apple layer; top with remaining apples and add more brown sugar/cinnamon mixture. Lightly pat apples into batter; swirl brown sugar mixture through apples using a finger or spoon.

Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center of the loaf comes out clean, 30 to 40 minutes.
