This Snickerdoodle Apple Bread is CRAZY GOOD and makes your house smell amazing while it’s baking!!

Oh friends. Today is a good day.

Why you ask? Well, because it’s not yesterday. Yesterday was the worst. I mean, nothing SUPER bad happened, but it was just, “one of those days”.

And now it’s today. It’s pretty great how the universe gives you a reset every 24 hours.

So we’re going to kick off the celebration of today with this Snickerdoodle Apple Bread.

Bless.

I shared the picture for this last week on Instagram when I was making it. And I have literally been counting the days until I could post the recipe. That’s not even an exaggeration per yoush.

What actually happened last week when I was making this, was I wanted to make a Chunky Apple Streusel Bread. BUT I was having another one of “those days” and added baking SODA instead of baking POWDER…AND the glorious streusel topping I made mysteriously disappeared whilst baking. To be honest with you, though, it still tasted magnificent..albeit a little squishy in the center from the buried streusel treasure. So even though I ate it, I knew it wasn’t the recipe I wanted to share.

So I went back to the drawing board and came out on the other side with this crackly, cinnamony, chunky, apple beauty. Never has chunky looked so good.

The recipe is pretty simple dimple.

Grab a Granny Smith Apple.

Peel it and dice it small-ish.

Then whip up the batter, which it super simp.

THEN sprinkle some cinnamon sugar all up on there.

When it’s baked the cinnamon sugar creates this sugary, delicious crust on top. It’s pretty magic.

Then you could wait until it’s cooled to slice it up or throw caution to the wind and get at it. I won’t be mad.

You guys might want to propose to me after this. Sorry, I’m taken.

Wow, this looks good! Is this the kind of bread you smear with butter and honey, or the kind you don’t spread and just eat slice by glorious slice, far faster than you probably should?

Could you incorporate Cream of Tartar, somehow? Isn’t that what gives Snickerdoodles their distinct taste?

Looks delicious either way!

I agree with you Meggon! I dont think anything should be called “snickerdoodle” unless it has the cream of tartar in it!!! But either way, this bread DOES look delicious and I can’t wait to make it 🙂

When using buttermilk in a recipe, don’t you use baking soda too?

Made this last night. Sooooo good. Mine took longer to bake than directions said. Wondering if it has been made in mini loaf pans and turned out as moist? How long did they take to bake in the mini pans?

Hi Shelly,

Just wanted to let you know that I made this Snickerdoodle Apple Bread
and it was fantastic. Since I can’t eat gluten I made it with gluten free
flour and it was the best. I love when a recipe comes out this nice using
gluten free flour. It absolutely tasted like a regular flour bread. I make all my own gluten free desserts because most of the stuff I buy out is either grainy or dry. Thanks so much for sharing this delightful recipe.

HI Shelly. I made this recipe today and have already eaten two pieces, so far. This is one of the best apple recipes by far. And I made it gluten free. I do a lot of gluten free baking and I can guarantee that no one will be able to tell it is gluten free. The only thing I added to the recipe was walnuts on top because I am a nut addict. So delicious and very light in texture. The ratio of cinnamon to sugar is perfect also. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe with us and all… Read more »

I printed this out and made it the next day – it was fantastic. My kids loved it and so did I. The cinnamon sugar topping was fantastic, as was the rest of the bread/cake. Easy to make. I even left the peel on the apple before dicing and you couldn’t tell at all, probably because it baked for so long. Thanks!

I made this bread this morning, and it was great! My son is allergic to eggs, so I subbed in Ener-G egg replacer for the eggs. I am really happy with the results!

Cream of tartar is used in the snickerdoodle cookies to give them their chewy texture. Not for flavor. Thus, it isn’t needed in the bread. I will plan to make this soon!

Hi!! What would be the best way to store this bread? I’m making it three days in advance, but the weather in my country is really hot and humid so it wouldn’t do to just leave it on the counter…would it be completely all right after three days in the refrigerator? Thanks!! 🙂

Hi Shelly: Thanks for posting this particular recipe–with the holiday of Rosh Hashanah right around the corner, I’m constantly searching for ways to incorporate apples into the meal without settling for a boring apple cake.
Can’t wait to try this!

I think she meant it doesn’t need anything extra to spread on it after it’s baked.
