Combine the wonderful flavors and smells of fall with this delicious homemade cinnamon apple bread. It’s rich with apples, cinnamon and pecans!

We recently went apple picking and I am still trying to figure out ways to use up all of the apples we picked! So far my kiddos and I have made Apple Turnovers , Mini Apple Pies, for The Crust Lover, All-American Apple Pie. ..and now an Apple Bread! It’s safe to say that I ❤️baked goods! haha

I found this recipe on Wishes & Dishes but changed it up a little bit by adding in the pecans. The pecans added the best crunch on top that took this cinnamon apple bread to the next level!

The chunks of apple cooked down while baking and became soft, the top was nice and crunchy with the pecans and the inside was delicious moist!

My entire family loved this bread, especially my husband, who typically is not a bread fan!

    I think there is a step missing. After step 4, you have the dry ingredients in step 5. Then step 6 is add milk. To which bowl do you add the milk and when do you combine the wet and dry ingredients.

      I noticed the omission too. I agree with Lynn P. Alternate adding flour mixture with milk mixture to the egg mixture. Beginning and ending with flour mixture.

    What kind of apple for this recipe?

      I would use a baking apple,like a Granny Smith or any rather hard slightly tart apple.
