Apple Pie Bread Is The Easy Fruit Cake That You Need

Banana Bread is the classic way to combine fruits that are just a minute away from death with the universally beloved cake. But happy news, apples are also prime candidates to be breadi-fied. By combining apples with a classic batter, you can achieve a beautifully moist cake that tastes just like an apple pie. And you don’t have to worry about all the pesky pie crust making either.

The fresh fruit breaks down during the cooking process and gets gently caramelised, adding natural sweetness and moisture to the cake. The cinnamon adds a delicious spiciness, but you can also experiment with other spices like cloves, star anise or ginger for an extra touch of warmth. This recipe is super simple to make at home and you can also add in nuts or seeds for extra nutrition.
