1/3 cup brown sugar lightly packed
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2/3 cup white sugar
1/2 cup butter (room temperature)
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups flour
1 3/4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 cup milk
1 large apple
Preheat oven to 350°F and grease and flour a 9"x5" loaf pan.
Core and peel the apple then pulse it in the food processor a few times until the pieces are about the size of a green pea.
Mix brown sugar and cinnamon together and set aside.
Beat white sugar and butter together until smooth and creamy; beat in eggs, one at a time; add vanilla, flour and baking powder and beat until smooth, then stir in the milk and chopped apples, until the batter is well mixed.
Place 1/3 of the batter in the loaf pan and top with 1/3 of the sugar-cinnamon mixture; do that two more times, ending with sugar cinnamon.
Bake at 350°F for 30-40 minutes (my electric oven takes 40 minutes) or until toothpick tests clean.
Let cake cool in pan for about 10 minutes, then turn it out on a rack to cool.
This snacking cake definitely does NOT need any frosting, ENJOY!!
