It’s that time of year – time to head to the apple orchard, pick apples and enjoy all the recipes that are available right now. We are blessed to have many apple orchards here in Northwest Indiana and they are ready for picking.
This Apple Bread boasts all the flavors of Fall with delicious Fuji apples and apple pie spice.
Quick bread is definitely some of the easiest bread you can make. Typically the bread goes together in minutes and has many different flavors, a couple of my favorites are Pumpkin Bread and Zucchini Bread, I have made both many, many times and we love them.
Gooseberry Patch is one of my favorite cookbook authors, this Apple Bread is adapted from Sunday Dinner at Grandma’s Cookbook.
