DUTCH APPLE BREAD

Simple recipe for classic Dutch Apple Bread with wonderful flavor and a pound-cake like texture. A lovely treat for breakfast or snack!

Dutch Apple Bread - Butter With A Side of BreadI’ve always loved apple bread. I have at least 4 recipes I’ve written already that are similar but I have to say, this one is my favorite! This apple bread has the best flavor and an almost pound-cake like texture- you won’t be able to stop eating it. I love how easy it is as well! Enjoy.

Dutch Apple Bread

  • 1/2 cup softened butter (1 cube)
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 1/2 cups diced peeled green apple
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans

Topping:

  • 5 TBSP cold butter
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 2 TBSP granulated sugar
  • 2 TBSP brown sugar
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon

Vanilla Glaze: (Whisk all ingredients together until smooth. Set aside.)

  • 1 TBSP melted butter
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 TBSP milk
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a bread pan with parchment paper or spray with non-stick cooking spray. (I use a 10″ bread pan but this recipe works in a standard 8″ pan as well. The bakes bread will just be taller.)

Cream butter and sugar in a mixing bowl. Add in eggs, milk and vanilla and stir to incorporate. Mix in flour, salt and baking powder.  Fold in apples and nuts. Transfer mixture to prepared baking pan.

For topping, combine all ingredients and mix with a fork or pastry blender until crumbly. Sprinkle over batter in pan.

Bake for 55-60 minutes, until toothpick inserted in bread comes out clean. (Internal temperature of bread will be 200 degrees F when fully cooked.)

Let cool. Remove from pan and drizzle top with vanilla glaze. Slice and serve.

Store leftovers in an airtight container.

  1. Just made this without the nuts… still delicious! I’ve never made a sweet bread before but this was AMAZING. The whole family loved it!

    • Sure, you can make it in a square glass pan- just keep an eye on it during the last few minutes of baking and adjust the time accordingly.

  2. I don’t have any apples right now and we had a lot of snow so I’m not going out. Can I use chunky applesauce and, if so, what adjustments would I have to make? Thanks.
