Are you an Apple Person or a Pumpkin Person?
Are you still feeling all the pumpkin love, or are you over it? I'm never over it. All year long, I'm all about the pumpkin. I just keep it to myself until September. Just in case you guys are pumpkin-ed out, I decided to bombard you with apple recipes instead! Last week, you guys seemed to really enjoy the recipe for Apple Pie Stuffed Cheesecake. Today, I'm giving you another baked good with apples, but this one isn't quite as sinful as the cheesecake.

I am using the term apple "bread" pretty loosely because it could double as a cake if you switched up the pan. Think banana bread without the bananas. You with me?
When I was thinking about making this Apple Bread, I envisioned spreading a nice thick piece of the bread with cinnamon butter. Once I cut into the bread, I scrapped that idea. Why would I scrap something as delightful as cinnamon butter? Because it doesn't need it. No butter needed. This apple bread is so moist and delicious on it's own.
I gave a friend of mine a sneak peek at the recipe and she made it last week too. She said it was "freakn' delicious" and she was already making another one the next day! As a blogger, for me, there is no better compliment than someone making your recipe more than once! She questioned if she did something wrong because it was a bit flat. I didn't see hers, but as you can see in the photos here, it is kind of flat. It doesn't puff up into a big huge loaf, so don't expect that. But expect moist. And expect flavor. And most of all, expect awesomeness.
Bloggers Make Mistakes Too!
I do have to tell you guys something funny that happened when I made this though. I got my batter all prepared, put in my loaf pan, put it in the oven and walked away only to come to the startling realization that "I FORGOT THE SUGAR"! I ran back in and grabbed it out of the oven, scooped the batter back into a bowl and added the sugar. Phew. Thankfully, I remembered only about 2 minutes into the cooking time. Definitely one of those "what the hell was I just thinking" moments. Please tell me you have those too?
