Happy National Apple Week! I love biting into a juicy apple any time of the year, but this fruit really reminds me of fall, which is creeping up on us and will be here before we know it. The second week of August celebrates the apple, giving us a little taste of this season and its delicious flavors.
The crumb topping was the best part. The bread itself was very moist, with apple pieces in every bite. I had a piece for breakfast and it hit the spot, but it could easily be enjoyed as a midday snack or dessert topped with vanilla ice cream, yogurt or whipped cream. My Bubby said it was my best effort in the kitchen yet.
With that kind of encouragement, I will definitely be whipping this up again and again and again. I have a few ideas for more quick breads I want to make in the future, especially once fall is upon us and the flavors of pumpkin, chai, and rich tastes of honey and caramel are in abundance. Just thinking about it makes me so excited and anxious for this time of year!
