Apple Cinnamon Quick Bread a perfect quick bread that you can eat for breakfast or for a quick snack during the day; I am sure you are going to love this bread.
Apple cinnamon quick bread, a dense bread filled with the wonderful flavor of apples and cinnamon. It will fill your house with an amazing aroma as it bakes.
Although apples are a great fall fruit, I love to bake with them year round. I mean who doesn’t love a slice of apple pie any time of the year. Apple pie with a scoop of ice cream is a great dessert on a hot summer day, yum!
I had a few apples in the fridge that needed to be used up, not enough for a pie or a dessert, so I started looking through some cookbooks that I received from my mom. This cookbook is one that came from my mom’s church, she had it forever before she gave it to me.
But anyway I found a recipe for apple loaf and decided to give a try. Of course, I changed things to the recipe that I thought I would like better.
I love the flavor that the apples give to the bread. The bread is a hearty bread with lots of body.
