Apple Crumb Bread
Apples are great year round, but you can’t help but appreciate them even more in the fall during baking season, because they smell so good when you use them in desserts.

This dessert features homemade crumbs too. If you’re like me and love lots of fresh crumbs, this dessert will make you happy.
