  5. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour and baking soda.
  6. Add the ½ cup of milk and mix until smooth.
  7. Add the flour and baking soda mix to the butter mixture, and stir until well-blended.
  8. Pour half of the batter into the prepared loaf pan. Layer half of the apple mixture on top of the batter, followed by half of the brown sugar mixture. Gently press the apples into the batter.
  9. Add the remaining batter to the pan, followed by the remaining apples and brown sugar mixture. Lightly press the apples into the batter and swirl the brown sugar between the apple chunks and into the batter.

So good! We love that, rather than bread that’s been vaguely and artificially flavored to taste likeapples, this one actually features real, cinnamon apples in every bite. Each slice turns into the most delicious and autumnal treasure hunt.
