Apple Cider Cinnamon Bread
It is time for all the fall baked goods! I went apple picking and got a large bag of apples. Gala apples are my favorite. Some of the apples are already bruised, thanks to my toddler throwing them for fun. But there were plenty left to enjoy and to make an apple cider cinnamon bread!
Apples are apples. I really enjoy all kinds. The granny smith one is my least favorite because it is so tart. However, my boys love them and it is a treat for them when I do buy them. To make the apple cider cinnamon bread, you honestly can use any apple you’d like. I used gala, since that is what I picked at the farm and normally buy in store. Gala apples have a nice sweet and crisp taste, which makes them great for baking!
For this recipe I used brown sugar instead of white sugar. Also, I used apple cider instead of oil. I normally substitute oil, when baking, for applesauce, depending on the recipe. I wanted to try and make this bread with no oil at all, and used the cider. Boy, was I blown away! It came out delicious and super moist! The chunks of apple pieces, helped make this bread even more moist.
You will need:
- all purpose flour
- medium sized apple
- baking soda

While you are apple picking, don’t forget to stop at the farm store and buy some apple cider and fresh donuts! Even the bakery is a great place to get fresh cookies. I got an oatmeal chocolate chip cookie that was so chewy. Soo good! Another reason to stop by the store is to get honey sticks. I love honey and they taste even better in the little straw sticks!
The holidays are around the corner. Purchasing jams, specialty salami/pepperoni and pies you can freeze, are perfect to get a head start! Great for hosting the holidays or gifting for the holidays!
