I’ve been on a donut kick lately but making them at home seems like so. much. work. But then this glorious recipe came along…donut taste. Loaf work. No lactose? Genius.

  • Author: melanie


1/3 cup brown sugar

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

2/3 cup white sugar

1/2 cup lactose-free butter, softened

2 eggs

1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1 3/4 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 cup lactose-free milk

1.5 medium apples, peeled and chopped

1 T granulated sugar

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1 cup of powdered sugar
1-3 tablespoons of lactose-free milk or cream



  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a 9×5-inch loaf pan with parchment paper, then grease.
  2. Mix the cinnamon and brown sugar  in a small size bowl.
  3. Mix the apples with 1 T granulated sugar and 1/2 tsp cinnamon and set aside.
  4. In another bowl, beat the lactose-free butter and white sugar together using an electric mixer until smooth and creamy. Beat in egg in 1 at a time, until just incorporated then add vanilla extract.
  5. In a fourth bowl, combine the flour and baking powder (I didn’t bother to sift.)
  6. Stir the flour mixture into creamed butter mixture. Then mix the milk into batter until smooth.
  7. Pour half the batter into the prepared loaf pan, smoothing into all the corners.
  8. Add half the apples and half the brown sugar mixture. Lightly press the apple mixture into batter.
  9. Pour the remaining batter over apple layer, smoothing into all the corners.
  10. Add the remaining apples and the rest of the brown sugar mixture. Once again, gently press the apples into batter.
  11. Using a finger or knife, swirl brown sugar mixture through apples.
  12. Bake for 35-45 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the middle of the loaf comes out clean.
  13. Make glaze by mixing the powdered sugar and 1-3 tablespoons of lactose-free milk or cream to a drizzling consistency
  14. Let cool for about 15 minutes before drizzling with glaze.
