Sweet Apple Bread

Apple picking season is here!  We have not gone apple picking yet, but we did stop by Jaemor farms on the drive home from Gatlinburg last weekend to pick up fresh apples and stock up on some canned goodies.  With a large bag of apples in the fridge all week I wanted to try out a new apple recipe-  Sweet Yeasty Apple Bread.  One of my favorite smells is yeast and there is nothing more “homie” than yeast bread baking in the oven.
