Quick bread is a wonderful treat. Perfect to serve as breakfast to overnight guests or to enjoy with a warm cup of coffee after a long day, nothing else hits the spot in quite the same way. It just tastes divine, no matter how you enjoy — whether on its own or perhaps toasted with a swipe of butter.
Cinnamon apple bread is a no-fail flavor combo. You can either make it with fresh apples (baking apples like Winesaps or Braeburns are a safe bet) or save chopping time by using applesauce instead.
Over at Wishes and Dishes, Ashley uses Granny Smith apples to make her Cinnamon Apple Pie Bread. She also uses white sugar, light brown sugar and cinnamon to increase the sweetness. You can opt to add in a pinch of nutmeg or cloves to give it a touch of seasonal flavor.
The Cookin Chicks, meanwhile, keep things simple by using applesauce instead of whole apples. You can opt to use sweetened, unsweetened, cinnamon or plain. You can even get extra-flavorful and use strawberry or raspberry applesauce, which would give it a nice rosy hue.
The Cookin Chicks also uses pumpkin pie spice to bring in those seasonal flavors. Find the full recipe here.
This bread is so simple to whip up and would definitely be a hit with neighbors and friends at any upcoming gatherings or brunches. You can even wrap it and gift it as a housewarming present or a birthday treat for a co-worker!
The beauty of these quick bread recipes is that you can really personalize your ingredients to your taste buds, whether you want to add chopped walnuts, dark chocolate chips or raisins. Yum!
