Dutch Apple Pie Bread {Recipe}

It all started when I ended up with more apples than I knew what to do with. I made apple butter, apple sauce, apple pie filling and after spending countless hours in the kitchen I couldn’t seem to bake, cook or can myself out of apples. While pondering ways to make them disappear I thought “how about some apple bread?” I knew I could freeze the loaves and we could enjoy them all fall. I quickly set out to find a recipe searching Pinterest and Google only to be let down time and time and time again. Every recipe was too fattening with at least half a stick of butter or a whole cup of oil in each loaf. Others were too cake like, (I wanted a true sweet bread.) so I rolled up my sleeves and started baking

I couldn’t be more excited to share the results with you today.

Bread Ingredients
  1. 1 Cup brown Sugar
  2. 1 Egg
  3. 1/3 Cup oil
  4. 1/3 Cup (heaping) unsweetened apple sauce
  5. 1 tsp cinnamon
  6. 1.5 tsp vanilla
  7. 1 Cup buttermilk
  8. 2.5 Cups flour
  9. 1/4 tsp salt
  10. 1 tsp baking soda
  11. 2 Cups peeled and chopped apple, approx 1/2″ pieces.
  12. *Any baking apple works, but I prefer the granny smith.
Topping Ingredients
  1. 1/4 Cup softened unsalted butter
  2. 1/2 C brown sugar
  3. 1/3 C flour
  4. 1/4-1/3 Cup rolled oats
  5. Dash or two of cinnamon
  1. 1. Mix brown sugar, egg, oil, apple sauce, cinnamon and vanilla until blended.
  2. 2. Stir in buttermilk.
  3. 3. Combine flour, salt and baking soda and slowly pour into wet ingredients.
  4. 4. Fold in apples to mixture gently until combined.
  5. 5 Pour into greased loaf pan(s).
  6. * This recipe makes one very full large pan (make sure you get the middle done) or you can do two smaller loaf pans instead. I like to do one large loaf pan and 5-6 muffins so I can make sure my loaf gets properly baked in the middle.
  7. 6. Combine crumb topping ingredients, cut together and sprinkle on top. The recipe makes plenty so feel free to use as much or as little as you like.
  8. 7. Bake at 350 until set in the middle and golden brown. A large loaf pan takes about 1 hour and muffins approx 12-15 minutes.

Creamy Apple Cinnamon Squares {Recipe}

There are few things that I love more than baking during the months of September through December. Pumpkin, apple, and cinnamon are some of my favorite smells and flavors that are just more temptation than I can stand. 

Today I want to share with you a super easy, creamy apple bar recipe. The magic starts with a couple apples and a cake mix. You can whip these bars up in a matter of minutes and nobody will have a clue how easy they were to make, until they ask you for the recipe.

 And trust me, they will. 


1 Box yellow cake mix

1/2 C. Unsalted butter softened

2 Apples, peeled, washed and sliced thinly
1 C. Greek yogurt

1/2 tsp. cinnamon

1 egg

1/2 C. Brown sugar

Cinnamon sugar (optional)


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees

2. Cut together the cake mix and butter then set 1.5 cups of the mixture aside for later. 

3. Press the remaining mixture into the bottom of an un-greased pan. I used a 7×11 pan.

4. Lay the apple slices on the cake mixture evenly.

5. Mix the egg and the yogurt together, pour over the top of the apples and evenly spread.

6. Put the 1.5 cups of cake mixture back into a bowl and cut in 1/2 cup of brown sugar and 1/2 tsp cinnamon.

7. Sprinkle the remaining cake mixture over the yogurt, gently pat down and lightly sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.

8. Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes.

 Typically I store these in the refrigerator, if they last that long.
