Cinnamon Apple Bread

Okay, I guess I lied. I said I was almost out of apples so you wouldn't see any more apple recipes for a while. At least this one isn't a caramel apple recipe. Don't think I didn't try to add caramel to it though. I get theses daily recipe emails from different websites. I got one from Betty Crocker for Caramel Glazed Apple Bread. I checked out some of the other apple bread recipes on Betty Crocker and came across this recipe too. The two recipes were very different. I liked the idea of the flavors from the first one, but I liked the mix of ingredients (and the reviews) from the 2nd recipe better. In the end I ended up with a recipe that was a hybrid between the two. Unfortunately, I didn't have enough brown sugar to do the caramel glaze so I decided to just do a cinnamon streusel on top. I knew I could substitute regular sugar more easily in the streusel than the caramel, although I would recommend using brown sugar in the streusel too, if you have it.

I'm sorry, but I've turned word verification on again. I hate trying to decipher the words just as much as anyone, but I'm getting way too much spam. I tried doing comment moderation as people suggested but the number or spam comments I had to sift through was ridiculous. I appreciate your comments and didn't want them to get lost among the spam. Hopefully, I can reduce the amount of spam and turn the word verification off soon.
