Snickerdoodle Apple Bread. 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.

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.

The cake was delicious and soft; would make again! I reduced the brown sugar amount to 3/4 cup out of personal preference, and also used 2 apples opposed to one. Also, as an added precaution to avoid sinking apple pieces, I tossed the apples in about a tablespoon or 2 of flour before combining in the batter. Great recipe!

This bread is delicious! I don’t bake a lot with Apple b/c my boys are not fans… though this bread may have converted them! I made with 2 small apples, and put some of the cinnamon sugar in the middle (based on reviews). Thanks for another winner!

This is delicious! I made it gluten free using oat flour, Dairy free using oat milk, doubled the recipe in a 9×13 pan, substituted applesauce for the butter, and cut back the sugar. It’s delish! Thank you!

What are other fruits I can add to this if I don’t have apples?

In the oven now. Smells wonderfully. Unfortunately, the batter rose over the sides of my “normal sized” loaf pan, and I have a mess to clean in the oven.
