Apple Butter Bread

Fall is creeping upon us.  Although it’s not coming fast enough for me. It is still 90 degrees and miserably hot!

I wanted to make something with what is remaining of my apple butter. You know, because I’m planning on making more come apple season.

So I found an Apple Butter Bread recipe to try. It was a hit! Actually, it made me wish for Fall all the more. It’s full of Fall flavors and so comforting with a cup of coffee. Or however, you would eat it.

Next, I’m baking my Pumpkin Bread. Don’t tell, but I also bake it all year. Yes, I know I have a problem with all things Fall, pumpkin and Christmas.

    Excellent! I did reduce the sugar by 50% and made half a recipe of the glaze, using milk and 1 T. orange. My spouse said, “This is one to make again.” Thank you for sharing.
