Forget the pie crust and get all the flavors of fall in a quick and easy bread with brown sugar and cinnamon topping that’s as sweet as apple pie.
I have to admit that I definitely mourn the end of summer’s blueberries, strawberries and peaches, but the end of summer and beginning of the fall season is a lot easier to swallow given the plethora of fresh apple dessert recipes. I’m normally more of a berry person when it comes to fruit, but this season I’m going to teach myself to love apples just as much
I began my apple phase by baking this bread from a recipe I had written down from a while back in my recipe book. It has all the flavors of an apple pie, but in the form of a bread. I’m all about the warm and cozy taste and texture of apple pie, but I’m having fun reworking those flavors into other desserts… this bread being one of them. I ate at least one slice of this bread for breakfast, dessert, and for a snack. I just couldn’t get enough of it and it’s suitable to eat at any time of the day. It got my wheels turning on everything I can do with it the next time I make it – apple bread french toast, anyone?
This is fantastically moist bread that I can see being perfect to start a day of apple picking…or Thanksgiving morning. The scent in my house was heavenly while this was baking. I loved the texture change that came from dicing the apples as opposed to shredding them like a lot of recipes call for.
Yup, this Cinnamon Apple Pie Bread is the stuff my fall dreams are made of, my friends. Bring on the apples, pumpkins and array of browns and orange.
