This yummy apple bread is a treat, and is nice to make year-round.  You can make it in the fall when there is a surplus of apples from apple-picking, or in the spring when store-bought apples tend to be overripe – or any other time of year!  I love this bread by itself, just as much as other sweets. 

Apple Bread

My kids pick a lot of apples in the fall, so we are always looking for recipes to use up all those bushels of apples before they go bad.
