I love fall. The clothes, the colors, the leaves and of course the food and sweets. There are so many ways you can experiment with all the “Autumn” flavors. Pumpkin, Maple, Apple and the list goes on.
I decided to use the apples I had gotten at Trader Joe’s as they were getting super ripe and I didn’t want to waste. I just figured cutting up some apples, pouring some brown sugar over them and letting them sit as I did everything else would be a good idea. I was completely right. I also loved how the apples created a beautiful topping, as the original idea was for them to sink into the batter. I pulled the recipe for the loaf from the Banana Bread I made simply substituting the white sugar for brown sugar and removing the bananas.
The end result was a moist, lightly sweet bread perfect with some herbal tea as a nighttime treat or as a wake up treat with coffee. I hope you enjoy this wonderful fall treat!
