October Pink Ribbon Apple Bread

October Pink Ribbon Apple Bread
                                              (this years apples from the tree)

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. This cause is very close to my heart since my Mom is a two time breast cancer survivor. Ten years cancer free this year. She is the strongest woman I know and I am proud to be her daughter.

Our company was doing a Breast Cancer Awareness day and asked everyone to wear pink in honor of the cause. I always do what I can to support this special cause, and I do it the best way I know.. I baked!! J
Everyone who chose to wear pink, was treated to delicious Apple Bread made with the apples from our tree. This year the tree produced a full bucket of apples!  I made 2 apple pies, 6 mini apple breads, 1 regular size apple bread and one jar of apple sauce.  Not bad, not bad at all….  Now back to the Apple bread, it was a hit. The bread is moist with a nice taste of cinnamon.  Since the apples are shredded, you can taste the freshness throughout the bread.  Delicious and perfect for the Fall and Winter months with a nice cup of coffee.. I hope you give this recipe a try, whether it’s for yourself or a special cause of your own.
