Cinnamon Apple Crumble Bread

Here is a delicious cinnamon apple crumb bread.  That crunchy crumb topping takes this bread to another level of delicious I love apples and have enjoyed apple muffins.  Cinnamon apple bread just takes it to a whole other level.

I made this recipe in mini loaves and am thankful that I did.  I can freeze the other 2, to enjoy later. These are also great for gifts for the neighbors.

How Big Should The Apples Be Cut

We cut the apples into 1/2″ pieces.  You want small, for easy quick baking.  They will also be lighter and not fall to the bottom of your bread.  if they are too large, they may sink or not allow the bread to bake completely.

How Thin Is the Dough?

This is a thick dough, it is not runny.  It is muffin consistency, and slightly thicker, depending on humidity.

It takes between 1 hour 15 minutes to 1 hour 30 minutes.  You will start to smell the bread cooking and keep an eye on it.  You can test with a tooth pick for it to come out clear.  When it is clear the bread is done.  If you bring the bread out too soon, it will fall in the middle and be gooey.

  1. Just made this recipe and baked at 350° for 50 minutes and used a toothpick to check for fineness. Let it cool and the center flopped in and it was not done. What did I do wrong?

  2. Hi Regina this recipe looks yummy, I’m going to try it later. Lots of friends have given me apples and this is just the recipe to use them up. I’m in the UK and in lockdown at the moment so baking mad. Always wanted an ‘Olde English Tea Shop’ so now living my dream making cakes and preserves for neighbours and friends in return for donations to charity.

    The weather here at the moment is also pretty miserable with torrential rain and strong winds so doesn’t help lift the mood of these difficult times.

    I’m a traveller too but that has been whisked from under my feet. I returned from the States in March (the last flight to London that day) as had been staying with my partner furnishing a new apartment. We have not seen each other since then as all flights not allowed unless essential for work, business etc.

    I hope you and your family are keeping well, safe, and free from this awful virus. Keep baking and creating!

    1. Thanks for visiting. I too have become more of a baker, than a traveler as we stay in place.
      Thank you for your kind words. Stay safe!
