Today’s apple cinnamon bread went through endless recipe testing to reach quick bread perfection. (Read how it came to life in the post!) It’s buttery moist and cake-like with plenty of apples dotted in each slice. Tossing the juicy apples in brown sugar and cinnamon before layering and swirling in the loaf pan is an important step. Assembling the loaf this way adds pockets of sweet cinnamon swirl and keeps the batter light.
