SMS: Mom's Banana Apple Bread


I love banana bread. Or quick breads in general. They are such a wonderful snack/breakfast/any time of day treat. Plus, as the name suggests, quick breads are quick to throw together!


This bread took a little longer than normal to mix up because of the apples. This banana bread is filled with apples that have been cooked in butter and brown sugar. You know, extra sugar and butter is only going to make something better. ;)


I loved the apples in this bread, and the cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves were nice. It had a little more spice than most banana breads I've had, but I actually really enjoyed it.


Thanks to Joy of Hot Oven, Warm Heart for hosting this week. The recipe can be found at her blog.

Yum, love your photo - the bread looks delicious! I enjoyed this recipe, though I suspect it had a lot to do with those caramelized apples. They really made the bread for me :)

Butter and sugar make everything better! At least there were bananas and apples in the recipe. Fruit is healthy- right?

Hi Cristine!

Thank you so much for baking along with me this week! I’m really glad to hear you enjoyed the recipe! I’m sorry I didn’t have a chance to stop by and comment sooner- I’ve been really under the weather for the past two weeks, so unfortunately I haven’t been on the computer too much… but I’m glad I had the chance to read your lovely post. Your loaf looks super delicious, with such a tender crumb and moist interior- great job!

I hope you’re doing well- have a great rest of your week! Hope to hear from you again soon!

<3,
Joy
