The best loaf to eat with a cup of tea!


A heavenly apple cinnamon flavor

I have been obsessed with apples lately and have been trying to find ways to switch it up a bit. This loaf is just the perfect fall/winter dessert and it reminds me so much of Christmas!


Ingredients in apple loaf

You will need 1 apple for this loaf.

Use baking soda, baking powder and cinnamon.

You will need ricotta or applesauce. The ricotta gives this loaf an amazing texture.

Use 2 eggs for best results.

Any milk can be used for this recipe, I used soya milk to make it dairy-free.

You will also need melted butter and sugar.
