Apple Cider Bread

This is a recipe for apple cider bread made with fresh apples, apple cider and the perfect touch of fall spices.  It is easy and delicious for fall!
  
 
As much as I am mourning the passing of summertime – there is one thing that I am supremely happy about – the return of apple season.  I made this easy apple cider bread the other night from Recipe Girl with some apples I picked up at our local Farmer’s market and it was fantastic. It is not overly sweet and has the perfect touch of fall spices. It is great for breakfast or a late-night snack.  If you have some apples that need using, this is your recipe!  So make this burn on my arm the size of Texas (that I acquired while baking this bread) worth it by going and making it yourself!
