Cinnamon Apple Bread

What says “back to school” more than apples? It’s September and apple season is just getting underway here in Nova Scotia with some local Gravensteins making their first appearance at our local farm markets. This is the perfect time to try a new apple recipe or two. Trust me, anytime you combine apples and cinnamon, someone will come in and say “what smells so good?!”



I’ve made this Apple Cinnamon Bread twice this week already! It’s a great after school snack, and declared by my daughter’s best friends as one of the “best things ever!” 😉 I told her I would share the recipe so she could try to make it herself sometime. Quick to assemble, basic staple ingredients…a fun project to let the kids tackle sometime.

Here’s what you need:

1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
2/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 cup milk
1 large apple, peeled and finely chopped

Check out Melissa at The Happier Homemaker for the recipe.


The air is starting to cool a bit, we’re grabbing sweaters when we head outside, this Cinnamon Apple Bread goes perfectly with this change in the seasons. September..apples…and bread…sounds good to me.
