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.

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?

Could I freeze the loaf, do you think?

This is by far the best apple bread I’ve ever made. It was DELICIOUS! I love apples, so I doubled the amount and it was scrumptious!

Can you use more than one apple? If you can add more than one apple what is the maximum amount of apples you can use? I have a lot of apples to use lol!

I’m already giving this 5 stars, even though it’s still in the oven! It smells AMAZING! I don’t usually have milk on hand so I took a risk…to avoid having milk that I might not end up drinking in time, I used French Toast flavored coffee creamer in place of the milk. I hope that doesn’t add TOO much extra sugar…but the creamer itself is absolutely delicious, so I hope it works out. ?But given the aroma in here right now, I don’t think this bread could possibly be bad!

Very easy and as delicious as she says. I would add more apple–and at least double the amount if you’re not working with granny smiths. Add chopped walnuts if you like a bit of crunch. I will definitely do this again probably this week!

I have no idea what happened with the end of my comment. Those question marks were supposed to be a heart!

Hi –

I want to thank you for the best bread recipe ever. We made until we were a one trick pony around Tahoe. Not that friends, family, and strangers wouldn’t welcome your bread one more time, but you know what I mean ; ) Your recipe’s a true original, so much so that I wrote a post about having to depart and venture on my own. Truth is, withdrawal and revert back. Ha!

I hope you have a good week ??

I’d like to make this for Rosh Hashanah (Jewish New Year) but I know one loaf will not be enough for my family. Have you ever made a double batch and baked it in a 9 X 13″ pan? Deciding whether or not to be brave and try it or make two loaves. Suggestions??

Can’t wait to try this recipe! Does the bread need to be stored in the refrigerator after baking?

I don’t have any Grannysmith apples, but I have Gala, could I use that kind instead?

Snicker-Delicious! Mine needed 60 min, plus the bread didn’t rise at all. I baked at 175C (w/out fan) so maybe it needs a hotter temperature or the fan. The topping is a bit of a mystery. It hardened completely flat and slightly rose up, kind of perched on top of the bread. It looked more like the landing strip of an aircraft carrier and didn’t stick to the cake. I had to break it off in chunks. Still wonderful to eat!

Can I make this into mini loaves? How many mini loaves would this make?

Caro

Just a tad too sweet for my taste, but pretty good! Might try again with less sugar (and maybe more apple?)

My 9 year old and I made this bread tonight using a macintosh apple and it turned out wonderfull. We used Wilton cake release to grease the pan and there’s no need to line ithe pan with this product. Next time we are going to split the topping and put half in the center of the load loaf since half does fall off while turning out the loaf. Maybe pressing the topping into the batter prior to baking will ensure it sticks? Walnuts would put this over the top!

I can’t thank you enough for posting this PERFECT APPLE BREAD. I have been trying to find an apple bread recipe that did not get soggy in the middle and this is it!!!! I love it! This is going to be my go to bread period. There are so many possibilities with recipe. I love the cinnamon sugar top too!!! YUMMY. Thank you again.

Be sure to line bottom of pan! This bread is to die for! I forgot to line paper and bottom tore up when dumped it out after baking. My fav sweet bread recipe by far.

Just a note: Not everyone is an experienced baker. While I now see you did mention peeling the apples up in the top…it was not mentioned in the actual recipe. Which led to me to missing it. I’m baking three loaves now and I’m just praying it turns out ok. Not exactly your fault I realize, but for future bakers details in the recipe help too. Thank you because the recipe looks divine and I will make it again…with peeled apples!!

Made this a few days ago and it didn’t even last 24 hours. Adding it to my favorite recipe file immediately and making it again next week with breakfast for a crew of cowboys. I have a blog and include favorite recipes there for the kids, I wanted to ask your permission to share this recipe there, linking back to you and giving you credit for it.
Thank you for another recipe that is sure to become a family favorite!

I made this recipe twice now. The first one was eaten so quickly by family that was visiting. It got rave reviews and was so easy to make.
The second was eaten by my sister and I. No shame, thank you. I added a banana , 1/2 tsp baking soda and a couple of tablespoons of flour to the last batch. It was bomb-delish! Great recipe!

I don’t have a nice stand mixer – would a hand mixer work just as good? Or mixing by hand? Thanks
