Ingredients

  • 3 apples peeled, cored and finely diced (I used granny smith and gala)
  • 2/3 cup light brown sugar packed
  • 3 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon divided
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter softened
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup cinnamon applesauce
  • 1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 2 tablespoons butter thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 2-3 tablespoons heavy cream may need more

Instructions

  • Preheat oven 350 F.
  • Grease and flour a loaf pan. Set aside.
  • Mix together brown sugar and cinnamon. Set aside.
  • Sprinkle apples with 3 teaspoons of cinnamon sugar mixture. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl cream together butter and granulated sugar.
  • Add eggs and vanilla extract.
  • Fold in applesauce.
  • In a separate bowl stir together flour and baking powder.
  • Add flour mixture to the wet mixture JUST until combined.
  • Stir in buttermilk. (Batter will and should be slightly lumpy. Do not over stir)
  • Place half of the batter evenly into the loaf pan.
  • Spread on half of the apple mixture.
  • Sprinkle some cinnamon-sugar mixture over apples evenly just enough to cover. (FYI: You will have plenty of cinnamon-sugar mixture left over. Save it for another loaf)
  • Press apples into batter very slightly.
  • Lay a few pieces of thinly sliced butter on top.
  • Repeat layers. Remember to press the apples gently into the batter very slightly. (Sometimes I like to gently glide a knife down through the batter to blend the layers a bit.)
  • Bake on middle rack for 50-60 minutes.
  • Let loaf rest in pan for about 15 minutes before removing from pan to let cool off completely on a cooling rack.
  • While loaf is cooling combine powdered sugar with heavy cream until it is a glaze consistency.
  • Drizzle glaze over completely cooled bread and let the glaze sit to firm up.
  • Slice and serve!
