Well, our week was a flurry of activity, and I’m having trouble remembering exactly what happened on Monday! Do you ever have those kinds of weeks?
All I know is that the past week has consisted of waiting (rather impatiently) to get our electricity back on, stopping in coffee shops to catch up on e-mail, hauling lots of branches, talking with insurance adjusters, waiting for inspectors, and praying that it won’t rain again anytime soon!
I was pretty excited when things calmed down a little and I was finally able to get back into the kitchen to bake! The first thing I made was this whole wheat cinnamon swirl apple bread.
I had just picked up some Jonagold apples for baking before the storm and thought a cinnamon swirl bread would be perfect for them.
The tartness of these fall apples is offset by the sweet cinnamon swirl and light sugar glaze. In order to keep it on the healthier side, I used a combination of whole wheat and white whole wheat flours. Unsweetened applesauce is used in place of oil and to add to the apple flavor.
Perfect for breakfast, snack, or dessert, this easy cinnamon swirl apple bread has quickly become a favorite at our house!
