  • 3 cups all purpose flour spooned and leveled
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup salted butter melted and cooled
  • 1/2 cup 2% milk
  • 1 - 1 1/2 cups diced apple honeycrisp or granny smith
  • 1/3 cup chopped walnuts

Maple Glaze

  • 1 cup confectioner's sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon butter or water very soft
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup


  • Pre-heat oven to 325 degrees and grease a 9 X 5 loaf pan.
  • In a medium bowl, mix together dry ingredients: flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking powder, and salt.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together egg, butter, vanilla extract, milk, and maple syrup.
  • Slowly incorporate dry ingredients into wet and mix until just combined - don't over mix!
  • Gently fold in apples and walnuts.
  • Bake for 50-60 minutes. until center is fully cooked - and a toothpick pulls clean.
  • Remove from oven and let cool for a couple of minutes, remove from pan and let complete cool on cooling rack.
  • Make maple glaze and generously drizzle over bread. Let set, slice, and enjoy!

Maple Glaze

  • In a small bowl add all ingredients and whisk.
  • If too thin, add more powdered sugar (a little bit at a time). If too thick, add more maple syrup a teaspoon at a time.


Spoon and Level the Flour.  
Always, for all baking recipes, if not using weights, be sure to spoon and level your flour. By not, this could cause you to add "packed" flour and ultimately add too much.
Do not Overmix.
When combining the wet and dry ingredients, be sure to slowly add the dry into the wet and mix just so that it's all combined. Overmixing the dough will create a very dense baked result.
