Storing The Cinnamon Apple Bread
This bread can be wrapped in saran wrap or put into a tupperware and will keep at room temperature for about 4 days. Can you freeze this Apple Cinnamon Bread? Yep! Just make sure that you allow it to fully cool. I’d slice the bread into individual servings and wrap in freezer wrap. Label and date them and they should be good for up to 3-4 months.
What Are The Best Apples To Use For Apple Cinnamon Bread?
You definitely want to have an apple that will hold it’s firmness during the baking process. Often, Granny Smith Apples are the “go-to” apple for baking. But Jonagold, Pink Delicious, Gala, Fuji and Honey Crisp Apples could also work.
Notes Tips and Variations
- Icing?- We didn’t put any icing on our version of Apple Cinnamon Bread. But that doesn’t mean that you can’t. Whip up a quick and easy Vanilla Icing by mixing 1 cup of confectioners sugar, 2.5 tbsp of milk and 1/2 tsp of pure vanilla extract. Wait until the bread fully cools and drizzle it over. Yum!
- Apple Cinnamon Crumble– This recipe would also be delicious with an apple cinnamon crumble on top. To make this, combine 1 cup flour, 1 cup old fashioned oats, 2/3 cup brown sugar, 1/2 cup granulated sugar, 1/2 tsp salt, 2 tsp ground cinnamon and 12 tbsp of cold butter, unsalted and diced into small chunks. Just sprinkle this on top of your bread before putting in the oven.
- Cut The Calories?- You can replace half of the butter with some unsweetened applesauce. So, instead of using one stick (1/2 cup) of butter, use 1/4 cup of butter and 1/4 cup of applesauce.
I hope you enjoy this recipe for Apple Cinnamon Bread. It is full of festive Fall flavors that your family and friends are sure to enjoy. Please let me know how it turns out for you in the comments section.
