These days I am especially conscientious about keeping food waste to a bare minimum.
That’s why I was super excited to find this recipe for Apple Cinnamon Bread because it needed only regular Pantry items and ONE large apple!
I didn’t have one large apple, but I did have a half dozen small Gala apples starring me down every time I opened the frig.
It only took about 10 minutes to have some scrummy Apple Cinnamony goodness in the oven. With it’s soft baked apple/crunchy brown sugar topping and moist cake, it was a huge hit all around .
If you’re looking for some Old-school delicious, try this one!
