In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the brown sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon; set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, use an electric mixer to cream together the 2/3 cup granulated sugar and butter until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs and vanilla, just until combined.

Made this today. It was delicious!
thank you for sharing the recipe. 

What type of apples did you use?

Very good!! The only comment is that the written recipe does not include number of eggs.  I went by the photo of ingredients in the post so I added 2. Turned out great. Was this correct? Will you update the recipe?5 stars

I’ve never commented on a recipe before but I just had to let you know I made this bread two days in a row because my family loved it so much they ate the first loaf in one day and HAD to have more. SO GOOD! Thanks

I forgot to put the 5 stars in my last comment, sorry! I’ve never commented on a recipe before but I just had to let you know I made this bread two days in a row because my family loved it so much they ate the first loaf in one day and HAD to have more. SO GOOD! Thanks5 stars

Made this two days ago and it’s just about gone!! My husband told me I cannot share it with anyone, so I’m making 2 more today for Christmas gifts. 🙂5 stars

I made the bread and it was delicious. Then made 1 big loave and then 4 little ones which was 1 batch divided up everyone love it. Also one is getting the receipe so she can make more. Thanks for making the receipe.

Great recipe, so delicious. Be careful when doubling the recipe. The instructions say one stick of butter when it really requires 2.5 stars

Baked this today( Christmas Eve) for our Christmas morning breakfast. Very simple to put together. Making my house smell wonderful.5 stars

Love Amish recipes!!!! Thank You!!5 stars

This turned out so delicious! I substituted 1/ 2 cup of applesauce for the 1/ 2 butter and it worked great!5 stars

I doubled the recipe! Thank God I did! The apple bread is d-lish-ous!!! Light! Buttery and not too sweet! Used gala apples! This is definitely a keeper .

Made this cake on the weekend, loved it, so did my family. Tweeted a little by adding the zest of a lemon to the apple mix.5 stars

What kind of milk did you use? I have skim milk and wondering if it would make a difference.

My MIL’s gluten-free. Since it’s not a yeast bread, would using a 1 to 1 replacement flour (Bob’s Red Mill has a few) work ok?5 stars

Both my kids have celiac and I substituted GF king Arthur’s flour. With most GF recipes I added a splash more milk as it tends to come out more dry otherwise.
