This apple bread is a sweet bread. Delicious as a variation on a banana bread. And the whole house smells great with the apple and cinnamon flavor.
It's autumn again and then there are plenty of apples for sale. Now the apples taste are at their best (but that is always true with seasonal fruit). So therefore this week: a week with apple recipes. Today we start with a bread recipe and I opted for a bread with pieces of apple and a cinnamon sugar spiral. A sweet bread, tasty as a variation on a banana bread. Another advantage: the whole house smells blissful.
The apples I used I harvested from our own fruit orchard. Fresh, firm apples. I've harvested lots of beautiful apples, ready for eating out of hand, but occasionally (it was a good growth year, otherwise there are many more), there was an apple with a brown tip. I have used that ones in the recipes of the upcoming week.
Tips: apple bread
- Because you sprinkle the apple pieces with lemon juice they do not brown in your bread.
- After the 1st rise you let the dough rest for 20 minutes before you form it to make it even aerier.
- By lubricating the bread with melted butter after baking, you get a delicious soft crust.
