Apple Cheddar Quick Bread Recipe

I was looking for Fall recipes and I came across this recipe for Apple Cheddar Quick Bread in the September 2013 edition of Canadian Living and thought it fit the bill perfectly! I normally only make Banana Bread so was curious to see how apple bread would taste. Apples & cheese at first may look like a strange combination but they actually go together perfectly. The sweet tartness of the apples complements the saltiness of the old cheddar.  I changed the recipe a bit though. I didn’t peel the apples and I forgot to include the milk. It still turned out delicious though. Spread some butter on each slice and enjoy.

Apple Cheddar Quick Bread - tart apples + salty cheddar cheese is a perfect marriage in this delicious bread.
