We’ve waited patiently throughout the humid and sticky summer months and are finally in one of our favorite seasons: fall! We love smelling fresh baked pie wafting from the kitchen, donning our chunky scarves and sweaters to head out in chill October mornings, and doing every activity imaginable that is associated with autumn. We’re talking hayrides, pumpkin carving, haunted houses, and, of course, apple picking.
Apple picking is a fun event for the whole family, however sometimes we find ourselves coming home with way more apples than we intended! As much as we love keeping the doctor away with our apple a day, we found ourselves craving a different way to use up our orchard loot. That’s why we’re showing you how to make cinnamon apple bread!
All you need is one of our Fiesta Loaf Pans, some fresh apples (we used honey crisp, but you can use whatever kind you’d like!) and you’re ready to get baking. This apple bread is a tasty treat at any time, especially when you’ve had just one too many PSL’s and are hankering for another fall flavor.
