Apple Season in New England
Apple season has arrived here in New England. Which means, it’s time for one of my family’s favorite fall activities – apple picking.
Last week, along with some friends, the kids and I went apple picking for the first time this season. Our group, comprised of three moms and eight kids, had a great time at Shelburne Farm, on a beautiful sunny afternoon, picking apples, both Gala and McIntosh as well as some peaches and Asian pears.
Each family went home with a nice stash of fruit, mainly apples. My three kids all love apples and enjoy them whole or sliced as snacks or along with a meal. Of course, I could not resist, baking something with apples.
Baking for My Kids
I’ve been searching for an apple bread recipe, that my 7-year old son, would enjoy. I’ve mentioned before, that he can be picky when it comes to baked goods, he doesn’t like them to contain nuts or chunks of fruit.
So, I thought I’d peel and grate the apples, like I do for my son’s favorite Spiced Zucchini Bread Mini Loaves, and add similar spices. The resulting Spiced Apple Bread is so delicious, has a nice fluffy texture and is subtly spiced with a nice amount of apple flavor.
This delicious Spiced Apple Bread is wonderful for breakfast in the morning along with a cup of coffee. My son enjoyed having a slice in his lunch at school.
A slice or two of this subtly Spiced Apple Bread is also great for an afternoon snack along with a cup of tea or anytime you’re in the mood for a little slice of something sweet.
