It's loaded with layers of apple and sprinkled with cinnamon chips throughout. Somehow the fruit magically turns edible and preferable to any other snack in the house ;-).
This bread smells absolutely divine and is better than any plug-in air freshener!
Cinnamon Chip Apple Bread
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
2/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup softened butter
2 tsp. vanilla
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 cup milk
1 cup cinnamon chips
1-2 apples, peeled and finely chopped
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare 9x5 inch loaf pan by coating with baking spray (or grease pan and dust with flour). In small bowl, combine brown sugar and cinnamon, set aside. In stand mixer bowl, cream together sugar and butter; add in eggs one at a time followed by the vanilla. Slowly add flour and baking powder, then milk, mixing to combine. Stir in cinnamon chips. Pour half of mixture into prepared pan. Sprinkle half of the apples over the batter, followed by half of the cinnamon/brown sugar mixture. Gently press into the batter with spatula. Pour remaining batter over the apples. Finish by sprinkling the rest of the apples and cinnamon/brown sugar mixture. Press into the batter. Bake for about 50 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
So, if you find yourself with a couple of apples that are past their prime, don't throw them away! Throw them in a loaf of this Cinnamon Chip Apple Bread instead! Your tastebuds will thank you, and so will the snackers in your house.
