How to Make Apple Cinnamon Bread
Ready to learn how to make apple cinnamon bread? This healthy apple bread comes together in a few simple steps that you probably know very well: mixing all the dry together, mixing all the wet together, combining and so on. The best part? You won’t believe the incredibly satisfying texture of this perfect apple bread recipe from less than 30 minutes of prep!
To make your apple bread recipe:
First, preheat the oven to 325°F. Then, line an 8-inch loaf pan with parchment paper or greased foil.
Then, grab a medium mixing bowl and add all the dry ingredients into it. Using a whisk, whisk the ingredients until everything is well mixed.
Next, grab a large mixing bowl and add all the wet ingredients into it. Using a new whisk, whisk this mixture until it’s very well incorporated.
Now, you’ll combine the wet and dry ingredients! Pour the dry ingredients over the wet ingredients in the large bowl. Whisk as long as you can, then switch to using a rubber spatula to stir and fold everything together to create a cohesive dough.
Then, pour your grated apples over the dough. You’ll use the same rubber spatula to fold and mash the apples into your dough, thereby releasing yummy apple juices into the dough. Finally, fold in walnuts. Voila, you’ve just made your apple bread dough!
Transfer the dough into the pan. Smooth into a loaf shape, as the dough will bake up much how it looks raw.
Bake for about 60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the highest part comes out clean.
Cool, slice, and enjoy the best apple bread recipe!
Tips for the Best Recipe for Apple Bread
This apple bread recipe comes together with little fuss and a lot of fun in the kitchen. With that said, I’m going to cover some simple tips that’ll take your apple bread to the next level.
Use your favorite apples. There’s no right or wrong apple here, folks! Okay, maybe Red Delicious. J/k, the grainy bastard! Haha. I typically use a combo of apples so there’s a complex and layered sweetness to my apple bread recipe. But you can use whatever you have on hand, just make sure they’re in good condition, aka not old and grainy.
Don’t skip the almond extract. There’s something that I love so, so much about almond extract. In my early food blogging years, I used to add it to everything. Think: chocolate pistachio snack bars, blueberry almond breakfast cookies, vegan vanilla ice cream, candied almonds. Now, I use it only on special occasions, like when I want to add a sweetness that’s not overbearing to a special treat, like this apple cinnamon bread.
Cool completely before slicing. I know, it’s so hard to wait! Especially after it took an hour to bake the bread. But trust me, it’s worth it. If you wait until your apple bread is cooled completely before slicing it, you’ll get nice, clean slices. If you don’t, you may end up with a crumbly/gummy mess.
