Snickerdoodle APple Bread. CRAZY GOOD and makes your house smell amazing while it's baking!!

This Snickerdoodle Apple Bread is CRAZY GOOD and makes your house smell amazing while it’s baking!! It’s an easy apple bread recipe that is topped with sweet cinnamon sugar, and when it bakes it gets this crunchy sugar crust that is amazing!

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.

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 bread recipe. Never has chunky looked so good.

How to Make Snickerdoodle Apple Bread

The recipe for this apple bread is really very simple…and honestly it’s more like a cake disguised as bread.

  • Grab a Granny Smith Apple, and peel and dice it up.
  • The batter for the bread is much like a thick cake batter. I like to use my stand mixer for this!
  • The best part is the cinnamon sugar topping, which kind of sits on top, but as it bakes it forms this crackly crust which is amazing!

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.

Hi! I’m Shelly and I’m an addict. Of the buttercream sort. I started this site a few years ago as a way to justify my sugary, buttery obsession with desserts. It has worked out well for me so far, because as it turns out you guys all love sugary, buttery desserts too! It feels good to know you're not alone, doesn’t it?

      I’ve made this many times now. Eat alone or with butter! Make sure that you use parchment paper on bottom of loaf pans or else bread might stick and tear a part after baking and removing loaves from pans.

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

    Looks delicious either way!

    1. Shelly

      I have never found that you can taste the cream of tartar at all. It actually helps with the leavening of the cookie. But this is “Snickerdoodle Inspired” 🙂

    2. Stacey

      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 🙂

  2. Steph

    OMG…this looks & sounds freakin DELISH!!! I’m making it today!
    Not to sound foolish…the baking powder iwould be in teaspoons right?

    1. Kandi Harkins

      Sue, I don’t what the measurements would be, but in the USA it’s just a loaf pan. This recipe is wonderful. You will love it I am sure.

  3. Marylou

    OMG! This looks delicious! I just happen to have a Granny Smith Apple sitting around all by its lonesome. I’m so making this tomorrow. I can’t wait. Maybe I’ll make it tonight after grocery shopping. ????

  4. Sarah

    Yum! I’m hoping to try this out today… it looks amazing! Do you think that using buttermilk instead of regular milk would be ok? It’s all I have at the moment!

  5. Kristy

    Maybe I’m just being weird but does anyone else want to incorporate that crusty sugary topping on every single baked dessert recipe??? Cupcakes? Cookie Bars? Yum!

  6. Julie

    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 the other wonderful
    recipes on your site.

    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!

  10. Shelley

    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!

  11. Heidi

    Looks delicious! I’m going to try it with Gala apples since I don’t have granny smith apples. I’ll let you know how it turns out. Take care 🙂

  12. This looks really fantastic. My boys (husband included) love snickerdoodle cookies so I don’t see how you could go wrong putting them into a bread. Thanks for the recipe!

  13. Beth

    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!

  14. Donna

    This looks wonderful! I was wondering about using bananas instead of apples. Would anything else in the batter need to be changed?
