Ingredients you’ll need
Here’s a list of ingredients you’ll need to make this bread. You can find my recipe card at the bottom of this post for the complete list with their amounts.
- plain/all-purpose flour
- light brown sugar
- baking powder
- baking soda
- ground cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg
- large eggs
- vanilla extract
- vegetable oil
- Greek-style yogurt
How to make Apple Cinnamon Bread
Whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and spices. Set aside.
Whisk together the eggs, vanilla, vegetable oil, and yogurt until smooth and combined. Add the dry ingredients, and the apple chunks, and mix until just combined. Do not overmix.
Pour the batter into a greased 9×5-inch loaf pan, and bake for 1 hour, or until a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out clean. Cover loosely with aluminium foil halfway through baking to prevent the bread from browning too much.
Allow to cool completely in the pan on a wire rack before slicing and serving.
Seriously, I swear this bread is even more moist on day two!
The printable recipe card with the FULL list of ingredients and instructions can be found at the bottom of this post.
NOTE: For best results, I highly recommend using the gram measurements (with a digital scale), rather than the cup measurements.
Cup measurements are simply not accurate enough, and I cannot guarantee the best results if you use them.
Tips & tricks for this recipe
Here are a few tips and tricks for making this quick bread.
- Apples. Use your favourite! I love using Braeburn for my bread and muffin recipes. You can also leave them un-peeled if desired.
- The vegetable oil and Greek-style yogurt adds an incredible amount of moisture. If desired, you can replace the yogurt will buttermilk, sour cream, or just plain yogurt (full fat and 0% fat both work well).
- This recipe does yield quite a bit of batter and will fill the loaf pan nearly to the top. I’ve had no problems with the batter spilling over the sides in the oven, and it bakes up beautifully. But if desired, you can use two loaf pans.
- Why not throw in a handful of chopped nuts? For added crunch!
This Apple Cinnamon Bread is:
- super quick and easy to throw together
- deliciously moist and bursting with flavour
- loaded with juicy apple chunks
How long will this bread last? This bread stays fresh covered at room temperature for up to 3 days, or in the fridge for up to 7 days.
Can I freeze this bread? Yes, this bread freezes well for up to 3 months. Thaw overnight in the fridge before serving.

What does it mean if the cake comes out rubbery (opposite of fluffly). I tried making it with one eggs. Perhaps that was the reason.

Made this loaf twice and tastes great. My only issue is that it is so big. Both times took quite a bit longer to cook and the batter rose and hung over the sides. The second time, the side broke off and fell into the oven because it overflowed so much. May have to try 2 small loaves or a 10 or 11 inch pan.

Hi Cara, it does fill a 9x5-inch loaf pan almost to the top, and bakes up nicely without overflowing. But if you are having problems with the batter, I would certainly recommend using two smaller loaf pans. I'm glad you enjoyed it! :)
