How To Make Apple Cinnamon Pound Cake:
In a bowl of an electric mixer, combine sugar and butter until smooth.
Mix in the eggs and vanilla next.
Then, it is time to add the dry ingredients. Mix all of the dry ingredients (except for the brown sugar and cinnamon) together in a large bowl.
Add dry ingredients to sugar and butter mixture.
For this recipe, we’re grating the apples so that we get a bit of baked apple all throughout the cake.
Make sure to peel the apples and then grate them using a box grater or a food processor. (if you’re using a food processor, make sure to cut the apples off of the core as we don’t want apple seeds in our cake)
Combine the grated apple, brown sugar and cinnamon together and mix well.
Stir the apple mixture into the batter.
Pour batter into a prepared loaf pan and bake in pre-heated oven, about an hour.
Remove pound cake from oven and let cool completely.
I like to dust the top of the pound cake with powdered sugar just before serving.
Can I Just Chop The Apples Up Instead?
If you don’t have a box grater or a food processor, you can indeed just chop the apples into small cubes before mixing them with the cinnamon and brown sugar.
