How To Prepare Maple Apple Bread

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and then grease and flour a 9 x 5 x 4-1/2 inch loaf pan. In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients, including the flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, and cloves. Set this mixture aside for later.

In a new bowl, combine room-temperature butter with granulated and brown sugar, then mix until light and fluffy. Add the eggs to the mixture one at a time, followed by sour cream, maple syrup, and vanilla extract. Fold in a mashed banana until it is thoroughly mixed in.

Grate and finely mince the apples before adding them to the dry ingredients. Then fold the dry ingredients with the apples into the egg and butter mixture until everything is incorporated but without visible dry flour streaks. Transfer the batter to the prepared baking pan. Sprinkle cinnamon sugar over the top of the batter evenly as desired.

Baking times for bread can vary depending on how dark you like your bread. Bake the bread uncovered towards the end of the recommended baking time for a darker crust. To test whether the bread is done, insert a toothpick or cake tester into the center of the loaf. When it comes out clean, the bread is ready.
