I’ve had a really productive Sunday. I usually get a lot done around the house when the weather is cold and windy like today. It puts me in the mood to clean and/or bake!
So I’ve cleaned out my refrigerator, organized my spice drawer and prepped dinner for the entire week. I also managed to bake up this amazing apple pie bread. I’ve been drowning in apples all week after getting a great deal at the Farmers Market. I make apple pie bread religiously around this time of year. I love how it just scents up the entire house with those warm, comforting autumn spices.
This apple pie bread recipe bakes up super soft and moist. The crumb topping is to die for. I made this bread around 2:00 pm and it’s now 9:36 pm and it’s almost gone. It never lasts long around here especially after my husband gets to it. He eat huge slabs with his coffee and my toddler loves this stuff.
Cooking time may vary especially depending on the type of loaf pan you use. I prefer using glass loaf pans. Keep a close eye on it after the first hour. The bread is done when a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
BE CAREFUL NOT TO OVERWORK THE FLOUR. STIR JUST UNTIL COMBINED.
