Harvest Bread: Pumpkin, Apple, and Cinnamon
Here at sisters, we get extremely excited for Fall. The mornings and evenings get cooler, a fresh crop of apples and pears arrives, and there are so many Fall festivities! Every year we keep an eye out for apple-themed festivals to participate in, like the Smith Berry Barn Heirloom Apple Festival, and the Old Apple Tree Festival in Vancouver, Wa (look for us at these great events this year)!
Fall also means freshly pressed apple cider, pumpkin spice lattes, pumpkin bread, and cinnamon apple chips. During the summertime, our berry-flavored chips are definitely the most popular. But, when fall comes around, customers can't get enough of our cinnamon apple chips! To show just one of the many ways that Sisters Cinnamon Apple Chips are the best fall treat, we combined them with one of our very favorite things: pumpkin bread! With this recipe, the apple chips add a bit of spice to the pumpkin bread, and, of course, a dash of sweetness. BONUS: If you layer the apple chips within the dough, a beautiful pattern appears when you slice the bread!
You can bet that this is going to be a hot item in the Sisters office this year! So go ahead and welcome Fall by popping this bread in the oven, curling up with your favorite hot drink, and thinking about all of the fun festivities just ahead!
