Honeycrisp Apple Bread, a Truly Delicious Quick Bread

This is truly about the best quick bread I have ever made, and I’ve made a lot of them over the years.  It was a huge hit for all of us!

I’m not sure what exactly makes it is such a delicious bread:  I always swore by Granny Smith apples for baking, and usually included brown sugar and oil in the baked goods.  This recipe contains Honeycrisp apples, white granulated sugar and butter; which is creamed with the sugar.  So ~ I’m not sure whether just one of these items makes the difference, or if it’s the process of creaming, or if it is all things combined.

Honeycrisp apples were developed in Minnesota and started appearing in the markets in the early 1990’s. They are just as the name implies ~ crisp and sweet, but with a little tartness too, plus a pretty color.  It has been my favorite eating apple from the first bite, many years ago, and from now on, I will be using Honeycrisp apples for baking too!

Honeycrisp Apple Bread


1 cup butter, at room temperature
2 cups sugar
4 eggs
4 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
4 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
3 teaspoons ground cinnamon
4 Honeycrisp apples, peeled, cored and chopped
1 cup chopped walnuts, optional


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Lightly grease two 8x4-inch loaf pans.
In a bowl, cream the butter and sugar until smooth and creamy.
Beat in the eggs.
In another bowl, sift together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and cinnamon.
Mix into the butter mixture until moistened.
Fold in the apples.
Stir in the walnuts, if desired.
Transfer to the prepared pans.
Bake for about 1 hour in 350 degree oven, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Cool in the pans for 15 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.

  1. Pam, This special apple bread sounds and looks great! Add a cup of coffee...and more butter on the warm bread...and it would be a great start to a new day! Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

  2. This looks yum! I love simple bakes like this, have not heard of honeycrisp apples, will definitely keep a lookout for these apples!

  3. Big Daddy Dave, thank you!! That's exactly the way I like it. It was all gone way too quickly!

    Joyce, I hope you find the apples your way. The bread is so good!

  4. That sounds perfect, quick easy and yummy. I use Granny Smith for everything including eating I love them. I now have 2 trees that are starting to produce quite well :-) Take care Diane

  5. Pam, I really need to locate Honeycrisp apples! At the Cape (Cape Cod) in September the innkeeper described how delicious and useful in baking they are and now you do, too.

  6. Diane, that's great with your trees! There's nothing like fresh apples!

    Judy, I think Honeycrisp is really great---cruncy and a little sweet/tart. And juicy! I hope you find them!!!

    Claudia, thanks!

  7. Wow ... that is a pretty high recommendation. I love honey crisp apples.


  8. I was thinking about making banana bread this weekend, but your recipe has changed my mind. I am sure my family will love it!

  9. Dear Pam, This is a delicious way to use the delicious fall apples. Blessings dear. Catherine xo

  10. We are going to an apple festival this weekend and I am planning on bringing home lots of apples. I will have to make this amazing bread!

  11. Looks absolutely delicious, Pam! I'll have to look out for Honeycrisp apples.. can't say I have ever seen them before.

  12. This looks like a fantastic bread, Pam. I like seeing the pieces of apple when you slice it. Honeycrisps have great flavor too.

  13. I never knew Honeycrisp could be used in baking till this fall. I think using good, tasty apples makes a world of difference in your baked goods...and this time of year, most of them have excellent flavor! Your bread looks amazing...this is one I'd love to make, too!

  14. The batter looks great, as does the bread. I just wish the honey crisps were so danged expensive!

  15. I love quick breads - and apple breads.... We don't get Honey Crisps here (I loved Harralsons) but we do have lots of good apples. Must try this!

  16. Looks delicious! Definately going to try! :)


Good bread is the most fundamentally satisfying of all foods; good bread with fresh butter, the greatest of feasts!

We went for Sunday rides in the Model-T when my grandmother didn't visit. My parents liked the orange groves, miles and miles of orange trees always either in blossom or full of oranges. My parents had a picnic basket and a metal chest. In the metal chest were frozen cans of fruit on dry ice, and in the picnic basket were weenie and liverwurst and salami sandwiches, potato chips, bananas and soda-pop. The soda-pop was shifted continually back and forth between the metal box and the picnic basket. It froze quickly, and then had to be thawed.
