  • 1 cup brown sugar firmly packed
  • ½ cup butter melted
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ cup milk
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups apples peeled and diced



  1. Pre-heat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.

  2. Then, melt your butter in a microwave-safe bowl. Pour this into a large mixing bowl. Add in the brown sugar and mix for 3 minutes until it's a uniform consistency.

  3. Next, add in your egg and milk and mix this again for 1 minute. Your batter will look lighter in appearance.

  4. Then, add in your cinnamon and baking powder. I like to add these in before the flour because it lets it get incorporated evenly throughout.

  5. Mix this together for about a minute and then you can add in your flour. Start with ½ cup at a time, so that the flour won't get stuck to the sides of the bowl.

  6. When all the flour has been mixed into the batter, you will then add the apple chunks and mix them together with a rubber spatula.

  7. Grease a loaf pan, and then scoop all of the batter into it. Bake for 38-40 minutes or until a toothpick is inserted comes out clean. I try to rotate the pan half-way through cooking so it cooks nice and evenly.

  8. Let it cool before serving! Make sure to wrap up any leftovers with plastic wrap to keep it fresh.
