Cinnamon Apple Bread

Cinnamon Apple Bread

I could instantly smell the flavour only by hearing the name of this recipe: Apple and Cinnamon Bread. It's the type of recipe I really enjoy - quick and not complicated at all, yet, eye-catching. Small pieces of apple, cinnamon and soft cake will be the perfect combination, much appreciated now, during the holiday season. My favourite is the top. It's a wonderful crunchy layer of apple, sugar and cinnamon, something like "the cherry on the cake".
