Dutch 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.

What apples can you use to make apple bread?

When you bake apple bread it’s a good idea to use a more robust variety of apple so that the apple holds up when baking. My favorite variety of apple to use is Honey Crisp. If you can’t find Honey Crisp apples or if they’re a bit too expensive, you can also use Fugi apples or Granny Smith apples. Try to avoid using softer apples like Red or Golden Delicious as they’re not ideal for baking.

I use a couple basic kitchen tools in this recipe that make baking apple bread much easier! First, I like to use a good bread pan. I bake a lot of bread and the pans I prefer are either aluminized steel or ceramic. Both types of pans will bake bread more evenly and release the bread more easily after baking. I’ve used glass pans in the past and it seems like my bread sinks too often when using them, so I stopped. I also don’t like using dark or nonstick pans because the bread cooks unevenly. It darkens on the outside before the bread is cooked on the inside, so it’s easier to burn.

I like to line the bread pan with parchment paper when I make sweet breads with a streusel topping like this one. It helps the loaf to be non-stick, even with sugar baked on top.

Dutch Apple Bread recipeHow to make Dutch Apple Bread

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.

Yes, you can freeze this Dutch Apple Bread as long as you securely wrap it and store in an airtight container. I like to wrap mine in foil then store in a freezer Ziplock bag. Be sure to eat it within 1-2 months!

Best Bread Pan?

I bake a lot of bread and the pans I prefer are either ceramic, glass or cast iron. These pans will bake bread more evenly and release the bread more easily after baking.  I don’t like using dark or nonstick pans because the bread cooks unevenly. It darkens on the outside before the bread is cooked on the inside, so the coloring is uneven. Read more about which bread pan is the best here!

My Apple Bread sank. What happened?

This happens to me occasionally too! Often it’s because I’ve over mixed the batter. Quick bread (referring to a bread recipe that doesn’t use yeast) does not like to be stirred too much, so try to just barely mix all the ingredients together. Another culprit could be overfilling the pan. The bread pan should be only half full each time. As always, make sure your leavening ingredients- baking soda and baking powder- aren’t too old. Baking soda should only be on your shelf for 6-9 months before purchasing new. I purchase it in bulk (I bake a lot!) and refrigerate it to help it last longer.
