Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour a 9x5 inch loaf pan.
In a small bowl, mix together the brown sugar and cinnamon; set bowl aside.
Using an electric mixer, beat the butter and granulated sugar together until smooth.
Add in the eggs, one at a time, beating until completely blended; then add the vanilla extract and mix until smooth.
In another bowl, mix together the flour and the baking powder. Stir this into the bowl with the butter mixture. Add in the milk, beating until it is fully mixed into the batter.
Pour HALF the batter into the loaf pan.
Add HALF the apples and then HALF the brown sugar mixture, covering the batter.
Pour the rest of the batter over the apple/brown sugar layer. Top this again with the rest of the apples, then the brown sugar mixture.
Lightly pat down the apples slightly into the batter; then, using a knife tip, gently swirl the brown sugar mixture through the apples.
Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for approximately 30-40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the middle of the loaf of bread comes out clean. (Mine took 40 minutes, but oven temperatures vary, so keep an eye on it from the 30 minute mark on...)
