Apple Pie Bread With Granola
Updated: Jan 10
Fall is all about pumpkin and apples and I haven't posted any apple recipe yet 😨
Well, here we go: Apple pie bread with Granola! 😋😋
This quick bread is soft in the middle and crunchy on top and in each slice you can taste loads of apples and sweet cinnamon swirls.
I think it's a super cozy dessert just perfect at this time of the year.
If you want to make it too you can read the recipe below this picture!!
40g brown sugar*
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
130g granulated sugar
113g butter, softened**
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
180g all-purpose flour
7g baking powder
2 apples, peeled and chopped
pinch of salt
--- TOPPINGS ---
Granola (I used Kellogg's Extra)
Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Cover with parchment paper a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan (23cm x 13cm).
Mix brown sugar and cinnamon together in a cup and set aside.
In a bowl sift together the dry ingredients: flour, baking powder, salt. Set aside.
Beat granulated sugar and butter together in a bowl using an electric mixer or stand mixer until smooth and creamy.
Beat in eggs, 1 at a time, until incorporated; add vanilla extract and stir until incorporated.
Add the dry ingredients and milk. Stir 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/push apple mixture into batter.
Pour the remaining batter over apple layer; top with remaining apples and add more brown sugar/cinnamon mixture.
Finally garnish the surface with granola (Kellogg's Extra).
Bake for about 45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the loaf comes out clean (cover the surface with foil if the surface starts to brown too much).
Let it cool completely before removing from the pan.
*The recipe calls for almost 70g of brown sugar but in my opinion it would be too much. If you like extra sweet cake add more brown sugar!!
**I made this recipe with vegetable oil instead of butter and I actually enjoy the consistency of the cake even more. If you want to try this way too, just replace it with 100g vegetable oil.
I adapted the recipe from here.
If you make it let me know! :)
