1/3 cup light brown sugar
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
2/3 cup white sugar
½ cup butter, softened
1 ½ tsp. vanilla extract
1 ½ cups all purpose flour
1 3/4 tsp. baking powder
½ cup milk or almond milk
2 apples, peeled and chopped (any flavor), mixed with 2 Tbsp. granulated sugar and 1 tsp. cinnamon
½ cup powdered sugar
1-3 Tbsp milk or cream (amount is dependent upon the thickness of the glaze you prefer)
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Use a 9 x 5 inch loaf pan and spray with non-stick spray.
Mix brown sugar and cinnamon together in a bowl and set aside. In another medium size bowl, beat white sugar and butter together using an electric mixer until smooth and creamy. Add eggs one at a time until well blended; add vanilla. In a separate bowl, whisk flour and baking powder;add to creamed butter mixture stirring to blend. Add milk and blend until smooth.
Pour half the batter into the loaf pan; add half the apple mixture, then half the cinnamon sugar mixture. Lightly pat the apples into the batter. Pour the remaining batter over the apple layer, and top with the remaining apples and finally the last of the cinnamon sugar. Lightly pat apples into the batter; swirl the brown sugar mixture through the apples using a knife.
Bake in a preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center of the loaf comes out clean; approximately 50-60 minutes.
Prepare glaze and drizzle over the bread after it has been removed from the pan and cooled for approximately 15 minutes.
