Best Glazed Apple Bread Made in the Bread Machine

It’s no secret that our breadmaker has been working around the clock here to churn out constant recipes. This past week, my oldest daughter decided she’d try glazed apple bread in the bread machine. I know I keep saying this, but this recipe really is the best bread recipe yet.

Also, in case you are interested, our breadmaker is a Hamilton Beach bread maker and we love it. Affordable and easy to use, we love this small appliance. It’s been a huge piece of our quarantine sanity. I don’t mean that as a slight in any way to anyone struggling.

In fact, the bread maker has simply helped us to make some scrumptious food and breads here. Also, it’s something my anxious teen has been using to work through some of the extra anxiety she has right now. Oh, trust me, we are pleading in mental health supports too, but this is a hit here for our family.

This glazed apple cinnamon bread has exceptional consistency and the flavour is fruity and sweet. I admit I am never 100% sure about chunks of fruit in recipes. Sometimes, the chunks of fruit create a texture thing that makes me feel a bit unenthusiastic let’s just say. But, I feel like this one has the right combination of apple and cinnamon and bread.

Apples, apple cinnamon bread served slightly warm still…Well, is there anything more comforting and tasty. Also, listen there’s no better smell or scent than this all afternoon or all morning wafting through the house. It is the sweetest scent ever.

Have you ever made apple bread? Don’t worry this recipe isn’t overly sweet. The glaze just adds a little something it needs.

    I do not understand the instructions. 2. says to set aside the icing sugar and the warm water. But I don’t see any warm water in the ingredients.

        The ratio is not right. Tried without a glaze and there was no flavor. Not enough cinnamon, apple, and sugar. Disappointed. 🙁

    I’ve been doing a lot of experimenting with my bread machine lately. Mainly brioche because that’s my family’s favorite. I have to tell you this is one of the best recipes. My whole family loved it. The texture was soft and fluffy with just enough apples. Next time though I am going to increase the amount of cinnamon. I have to make it again though because I forgot the glaze. If you get a chance to fix the rest of the pleased to reflect milk with the glaze and not water in the instructions. Thanks for the super recipe.
