Apple season is upon us although we certainly don’t have to wait for the Fall in order to enjoy a delicious Apple Loaf Cake. Apples are easy to come by year-round however, there is something significant when we mark the seasons with food. It gives us something to look forward to each turn of the clock. And I would have to say that few things taste better than the pairing of apples and cinnamon. That is why this Apple Loaf Cake is surely on my must make list for the Fall season. Its moist, freshness and cinnamon topping make it dessert like in essence but acceptable for the breakfast table too. At least in my house anyway. This one just so happens to compliment a cup of morning coffee rather well.

FAQ For Apple Loaf Cake

Can I use oil instead of butter?

You can although the flavor will have a subtle taste difference since the butter used is salted. If you opt to use the oil I would also add a 1/4 tsp of salt as well.

What type of pan do I need to bake it in?

A standard class or metal loaf pan will do perfectly.
