Apple Cinnamon Bread is quick and easy to make from scratch and makes your house smell amazing! Swirled with delicious spiced apples and topped with cinnamon sugar, this quick bread recipe is sure to be a fall favorite
This apple cinnamon quick bread has a nice crumb and is not overly sweet – a perfect fall breakfast, snack or dessert! The chopped apple inside that’s mixed with brown sugar and fall spices like cinnamon and nutmeg makes this bread super moist without it being doughy and keeps it fresh for days.
This cinnamon apple loaf cake tastes great warm out of the oven but I love it even more after a day or two! The flavor of the cinnamon apples come through even more when the bread has rested. Perfect for busy days when you don’t have time to bake on the same day!
What I also love about baking this cake is that the house smells amazing afterward! No need for fall candles, this easy recipe comes with your favorite fall scents included!
