Sweet banana bread meets apple pie and makes the best fall dessert! Topped with a vanilla glaze, this apple pie banana bread is pretty delish! It’s that time of the year again!

The time I try not to spend all of my Christmas-shopping-for-others-adventures actually shopping for myself (I know, it’s October, but I’m a Christmas gift planner–it’s probably the only thing I do plan in advance…).

Why is it that when you’re shopping for yourself, you find NOTHING, but when it comes time to shop for others, everything you’ve ever needed (wanted) is on sale. And, of course, there’s only one left, giving you absolutely no time to decide if there’s any other option besides buying it. Stat.

The struggle, guys. Oh, it’s real.

Sweet banana bread meets apple pie and makes the best fall dessert! Topped with a vanilla glaze, this apple pie banana bread is pretty delish! The other struggle in my life was trying not to eat this loaf in its entirety. I’m pretty much a compulsive banana bread eater already so when you add in homemade apple pie filling and a sweet, sugary glaze, all bets are off.

Perhaps I should just give this as Christmas gifts this year…

Who doesn’t love opening a tin and finding baked goods?! Toffee, fudge, peppermint bark, chocolate cookies, this apple pie banana bread…

Food just might be the best gift on the planet.

Ingredients

    Bread
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 3-4 medium bananas (or 2 large bananas)
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • Apple Pie Filling
  • 1 large apple, diced into small pieces
  • 1 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 Tbsp butter
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3/4 tsp cinnamon
  • Cinnamon Vanilla Glaze
  • 1 1/2 - 2 Tbsp milk or heavy cream
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350. Grease two 8x4 pans.
  2. Apple Filling
  3. On med-low heat, cook apple filling mixture for about 3-4 minutes. Pull off heat and allow to cool.
  4. Bread
  5. In a small bowl, mash bananas. Set aside.
  6. In a large bowl, cream butter, sugar, and brown sugar together until light and fluffy.
  7. Add in the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add in vanilla extract, and mix.
  8. Sift together the flour, baking soda, and salt in a separate bowl. Slowly incorporate the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients, and stir until just combined.
  9. Add in mashed bananas and cooled apple filling, and mix until combined. Pour into prepared loaf pans, dispersing the batter evenly between the two.
  10. Bake for 35-40 minutes, or until a cake tester comes out clean with just a few moist crumbs stuck to it.
  11. Allow to cool for 10 minutes. Move to a wire cooling rack.
  12. Cinnamon Vanilla Glaze
  13. Mix together powdered sugar, vanilla extract, cinnamon, and 1 1/2 Tbsp of milk or heavy cream. If the glaze is thicker than your desired preference, add in the last 1/2 Tbsp of milk or heavy cream.
  14. Pour the glaze evenly over both loaves. Allow the glaze to harden completely before cutting into slices.
  15. Enjoy!

    OMG you’re so right! Whenever I’m shopping for others I find 10x the things I want compared to shopping for myself. I’m so excited for Christmas already, as well. But this apple pie banana bread is a delicious reminder that it’s still fall and fall is the best 🙂
