Step 1: Preheat the Oven

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Line a loaf pan with parchment paper and set it aside.

Step 2: Prepare the Filling/Topping

  1. In a small bowl, combine the light brown sugar, ground cinnamon, and a pinch of ground nutmeg. Mix well and set aside.

Step 3: Make the Cake Batter

  1. In a large bowl, combine the granulated sugar, melted butter, sour cream, eggs, milk, and vanilla extract. Mix until smooth and well combined using either a hand mixer or an electric mixer.
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  3. Gradually mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until just combined. Do not overmix.

Step 4: Incorporate the Apples

  1. Fold in the diced Granny Smith apple pieces, reserving a few pieces for topping.

Step 5: Layer the Batter and Filling

  1. Pour half of the batter into the prepared loaf pan and spread it out into an even layer.
  2. Sprinkle half of the cinnamon sugar mixture over the batter. Use a flat butter knife to swirl the mixture through the batter.
  3. Add the remaining batter on top and smooth it out into an even layer. Top with the reserved apple pieces and sprinkle the remaining cinnamon sugar mixture over them. Swirl the top layer with the butter knife.

Step 6: Bake the Bread

  1. Bake in the preheated oven for 50 to 55 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  2. Let the bread cool in the pan on a wire rack for 10 to 20 minutes.

Step 7: Prepare the Glaze

  1. While the bread is cooling, prepare the glaze. In a small bowl, sift the powdered sugar. Gradually add hot water, whisking until you reach the desired consistency.
  2. Drizzle the glaze over the cooled bread. Allow the glaze to set for 5 to 10 minutes before slicing and serving.
