DUTCH APPLE BREAD

Apple Bread made from scratch with butter, sugar & plenty of fresh apples. Topped with a cinnamon streusel & drizzled with warm vanilla glaze; it’s amazing.

Apple Bread is something I love any time of the day. I’ve always loved it! 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
  1. 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.)
  2. 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.
  3. For topping, combine all ingredients and mix with a fork or pastry blender until crumbly. Sprinkle over batter in pan.
  4. 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.)
  5. Let cool. Remove from pan and drizzle top with vanilla glaze. Slice and serve.
  6. 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.
    • I haven't tried it, but if I were you, I'd add 1 cup apple pie filling (chopping the apples up a bit) and decrease the milk to 1/4 cup. Let me know how it goes!
  3. I live in the apple-rich Blue Ridge Mountains and I am always looking for more apple recipes. I came across your recipe by luck...yay! This is a delicious apple bread and we loved the icing on top. I have only made it once but I am looking forward to making this for my grandchildren. Thanks so much for posting this.
  4. I made this recipe last night. Did not have apples so I substituted diced peaches in their place. It is not a soft bread, but is great tasting. I put butter and apricot jelly on the slice when I cut it instead of the topping. My husband topped his slice with vanilla ice cream...it was delicious. I'm thinking that whole berry cranberry sauce would be great in the batter also. I'm from Massachusetts and love all things cranberry having grown up near the cranberry bogs.
  5. I made this recipe yesterday, as written, but without the nuts (nut allergy). Although it was delicious, I think it needs cinnamon in the batter. I used Granny Smith apples; I think that most other types would cook down too much during the baking process. I'll make it again soon, adding 2 teaspoons of cinnamon to the batter. Thank you for sharing this!!
  6. just found your recipe, i am wondering if using oil instead of butter would change the outcome and if i can, what would the ratio be? tks
    • Using oil instead of butter would change the flavor for sure and it might make it a bit more crumbly. I've not tried it in this recipe- I'd just do a straight replacement. Let me know how it goes!
  7. Going to try this recipe without the nuts. I'm thinking of adding raisins instead. Any suggestions? Could i just use the whole raisins?
    • Adding whole raisins would be delicious! To make the colors blend more too, you could use golden raisins. :)
  8. I made this recipe today and I am so pleased with how it turned out. I followed the recipe as written and can't wait to share with friends and family. I did have to bake it for 75 minutes though.
  9. I made this in cupcake pans for great grand kids and the rest of the family, they all loved it. the little ones really loved the nuffins they call them.
