Apple Pie Bread
I shared this Apple Pie Bread recipe last week over at the36thAVENUE.com where I contribute a recipe every month! I love Desiree and all her extraordinary creations… you’ll have to be sure and visit her over there!
Lately, I’ve been in the mood for baking delicious fall recipes. This Apple Pie Bread recipe is extra delicious and makes your whole house smell wonderful… an appley delight! Oh my goodness you’re just going to love it.
Apple Pie Bread is absolutely melt-in-your-mouth wonderful! I skinnied down the original recipe because that’s just what I do- I struggled with weight issues until my 30′s (read about my weight loss story part A and part B here) and so now I try to make every recipe as healthy and low calorie as possible while still keeping all the flavor!
