  • Combine apples, 4 tablespoons butter, honey, 1 tablespoon cinnamon, and cinnamon stick in a saucepan over medium heat. Cover with a lid and cook, stirring frequently, about 10 minutes.

  • While apples are simmering, sift flour, baking powder, and salt together in a bowl.

  • Combine remaining 8 tablespoons butter, remaining 1 tablespoon cinnamon, and sugar in the bowl of a stand mixer. Beat together until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time; beat until fully incorporated. Add vanilla extract.

  • Discard cinnamon stick and mash cooked apples. Add mashed apples and pecans to the batter. Use a rubber spatula to mix in flour mixture until just incorporated. Transfer batter to the prepared loaf pan.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 1 hour. Cool on a wire rack.
