We went apple picking last weekend and picked 20 pounds of empire apples. Half of them are gone already, and I’m wondering if I’ll be able to get back out to an orchard before all the apples are gone. I haven’t even had the chance to make apple pie or apple crisp yet.

I welcomed this enormous bag of apples into our home by making a batch of this apple cinnamon bread. This is such a delicious treat, and it’s perfect with a cup of tea or coffee on a cool autumn morning.

By grating the apples rather than cutting them into chunks, I get an even distribution of apple flavor throughout the bread. This is a whole wheat version, but the bread is also delicious with gluten-free flour. The smell of cinnamon coming from the oven is a comfort for me as I brace myself for the cold weather that’s already beginning to sneak its way into my house.
