Apple & Cinnamon Loaf


1/3 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2/3 cup caster sugar
125g cup butter, softened
2 eggs
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups SR Flour
1/2 cup milk
2 Granny Smith apples, peeled and chopped

Preheat oven to 180 degrees. Line a loaf pan with paper.

Mix brown sugar and cinnamon together in a bowl and set aside. Beat sugar, vanilla and butter together in a bowl using an electric mixer until smooth and creamy. Beat in eggs, 1 at a time, until smooth.

Sift flour into creamed butter mixture and stir gently. Mix milk into batter, stir until smooth. Pour half the batter into the prepared loaf pan. Next add half the apples and half the brown sugar cinnamon mixture. Lightly pat apple mixture into batter.

Pour the remaining batter over apple layer; top with remaining apples and add more brown sugar/cinnamon mixture. Lightly pat apples into batter, using a spoon gently mix the top layer gently to combine the cake mix with the cinnamon a little, to give it a marbled effect.

Bake in the preheated oven 30 to 40 minutes.

You can also use Muffin pans, they will take around 15 mins to cook. Great to freeze & pop individual muffins in your kids lunch box .
