Ch. 54: Let’s do the Cinnamon Apple Twist Bread

We still had a bunch of apples left over from a family friend- even after using a couple for those apple pie cookies. And so I scoured my typical sources for a recipe to use up a good amount of them. One recipe that came up was for Cinnamon Apple Twist Bread from King Arthur…
