Snickerdoodle Apple Bread

October 29, 2015

This bread was birthed out of two things – our recent apple picking excursion, and the fact that I was delivering two meals to two families one night, and it’s always more fun to include something sweet to finish things off, right?

I found a few recipes that looked tasty, and made do with what was in my pantry, putting my own spin on it. The results were delish! This is a new favorite of ours. Good thing I quadrupled the recipe, so we had two loaves at home, because the first one was gone within minutes.

I love fall flavors, and apple is one of the best things about fall, is it not? Plus, it smells so good cooking in the oven!
