An amazing Quick Apple Bread Recipe topped with cinnamon sugar. Easy to make, sweet and so delicious and packed with real apple chunks.



Apple Bread Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cups (180 grams) flour
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon iodized salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 2/3 cup neutral cooking oil, like canola or vegetable
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 cups peeled and chopped apples (about 2 medium)*

Cinnamon Sugar Ingredients:

  • 2 teaspoons granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon


  1. Preheat your oven to 350° Fahrenheit. Grease a 9×5″ loaf pan and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
  3. Add the oil, eggs and vanilla and stir until just combined.
  4. Fold in the apples.
  5. Scrape into a greased loaf pan.
  6. Mix together sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle over bread.
  7. Bake until a toothpick inserted into the middle of the loaf comes out clean, about 55-60 minutes.
  8. Cool for ten minutes then remove it from pan to wire rack. Let cool until just warm and then slice.
  9. This bread will last up to four days at room temperature in a sealed container. You can also freeze it for up to two months.


*Most apples will work. The best are Granny Smith, Honeycrisp, Fuji, or Gala. Avoid Macintosh apples, which are notoriously mushy.

You can make a healthier version by swapping some or all of the oil for an equal amount of applesauce. My favorite is using 1/3 cup oil and 1/3 cup applesauce.

If you don’t have a bread pan, this bread can also be baked in a 9″x9″ baking dish and reduce baking time to 35 minutes.
