Apple Pie Bread is an easy to make quick bread with apple pie filling mixed into the brown sugar batter. Serve warm with a side of vanilla ice cream!
Fall is just around the corner and fall reminds me of apples, pumpkins, comforting soups, the leaves falling to the ground and wonderful brisk fall weather days. I do want summer weather to last a little while longer but I don’t mind when the fall weather appears.
Apple Pie Bread whips up in a jiffy and uses apple pie filling and apple pie spice to bring home all the flavors of apple pie. The apple pie filling makes this quick bread extra moist. I love the addition of the apple pie spice, the nutmeg in the spice really stands out in this recipe.
I dusted the warm bread with powder sugar, it makes it look extra special. Apple Pie Bread is best served warm but I ate a piece this morning that wasn’t warm and it was still delicious. If serving this to guests, add a scoop of vanilla ice cream along side each slice.
- 1/2 cup butter, softened
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 2 eggs
- 2 cups flour
- 2 1/2 tsp. baking powder
- 1 tsp. apple pie spice
- 1 can Apple Pie filling (approx. 20 ounce can)
- Powdered Sugar
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9 x 5 inch bread pan. If you would like, you can line the pan with parchment paper.
- In a large bowl, mix together the butter and powdered sugar for 2 minutes on medium speed.
- Add in the eggs, 1 at a time and mix on medium speed until combined.
- In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and apple pie spice. Mix the dry ingredients into the butter mixture until combined on medium speed.
- Open the can of apple pie filling and add it to a bowl. With a scissors, cut the apple slices into chunks. Add the apple pie filling to the dough and using a spatula, fold until combined.
- Spread the dough into the bread pan, even the top out with a spatula.
- Bake for 50-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
- Cool on a wire rack for 15 minutes, then remove the bread from the pan and sprinkle with powdered sugar. Store in an air tight container.
