Fall and apples go hand in hand to me. You can’t have one without the other unless you live in Florida and there aren’t any trips to the cider mill or changing leaves. So what do I do to get in the mood? I look for bags of apples from Michigan! Hard to believe I’m admitting this out loud but a girl has to do what a girl needs to do. It helps and I buy every variety I can find. I have a whole shelf in my refrigerator right now with only apples on it. Today I made this delicious Apple Streusel Pecan Bread and some fake fried apples. If you’re wondering what fake fried apples are, there was no frying allowed instead they took a bath in some apple cider I found from Michigan. In case you’re wondering what’s the deal with Michigan, that is where I grew up.

We went to the cider mill on the weekends and got the best warm donuts in cinnamon sugar. We’d watch them crushing the apples to make cider which at the time was only 10 cents a glass. I think donuts were 5 cents. Yes. I’m old….. LOL

This is an easy bread to put together. You can use a hand mixer or a stand mixer. If it wasn’t for having to cream the butter and sugars I’d say just a bowl and spoon will work too but it will take a bit of effort. The apples are grated so the apple flavor is in every bite, especially the second day. I used both Granny Smith and Galas in my bread.

    I agree, fall and apples go hand in hand…of course, I am partial to local Ohio grown apples…lol Your bread looks amazing and I cannot imagine fall without apples and changing leaves, but I can imagine winter without snow, so I guess living in FL does have it’s perks! haha
