This cinnamon apple bread is one of my favorite treats ever!! The first time I had it I couldn’t quit eating it. I kept taking small slices until eventually half the loaf was gone!! It is perfectly moist, sweet, and has just the right spices. The cinnamon sugar topping adds nice texture and makes it even more irresistible. That part reminds me of cinnamon toast- a favorite snack of mine growing up. So this is like a cross between apple bread and cinnamon toast- that is one delicious combination!

It is made in one bowl (besides the topping), is in the oven in 5 minutes, and is filling your home with a sweet aroma soon after. I just love how simple it is and I’ve made it so many times. It just gets better on the second and third day, so it’s great to make ahead of time.
