Total prep time: 1 hour 10 minutes
Yield: 12 servings

Ingredients:

For the cinnamon sugar
⅓ cup packed light brown sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

For the cake:
¾ cup granulated sugar
½ cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 large eggs
1½ cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon salt
½ cup buttermilk

For the apples:
3 tablespoons granulated sugar
1½ teaspoons ground cinnamon
1¾ cups chopped peeled baking apples

For the icing:
½ cup powdered sugar
2 teaspoons milk

How to Prepare

Step 1: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9×5 inch loaf pan with nonstick baking spray and set aside.

For the cinnamon sugar:
Step 2: Combine the brown sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl and set aside.

For the cake:
Step 3: Using an electric mixer on medium speed, cream the sugar and butter together in a large bowl until they become light and fluffy. Add the vanilla and beat properly, then add the eggs, one at a time, and beat until each egg is just combined.
Step 4: Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a medium sized bowl. Mix until they become well incorporated. Transfer this flour mix and buttermilk to the sugar-butter mix (step 3) in alternate fashion, starting and ending with the flour mix. Beat well after each addition to ensure the mix is well incorporated. Scrape down the sides and bottom of the bowl with a spatula and stir in any unmixed bits of batter.

For the apples:
Step 5: Combine the sugar and cinnamon in a medium sized bowl, and mix well. Add the apples and toss until the apples are coated with the cinnamon sugar.
Step 6: Add half of the batter (step 4) to the sprayed loaf pan. Add half of the coated apples in a layer and gently push down into the batter, then sprinkle half of the cinnamon sugar over the apples. Repeat the process to create a second layer of batter-apple-cinnamon sugar over the initial layer, then use a skewer to swirl it all together.
Step 7: Insert a toothpick into the center of the prepared loaf, and then bake in the preheated oven for about 60 to 65 minutes, until the toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

For the icing:
Step 8: Mix the icing ingredients together in a small bowl until smooth.
Step 9: Place cake on a serving platter and drizzle warm cake with icing. Slice and serve warm or at room temperature.
