Country Cinnamon Apple Bread

I’m a notorious late-night snacker. Come 10:00 every night, you can find me shuffling through the cupboards looking for something to eat. Which is exactly why I refuse to buy cookies, ice cream, chips and candy for my house because I will inevitably find myself eating an entire box of Oreos at midnight (I have an issue with late-night portion control too).

Sometimes though, the craving is too strong and I will ravenously scour Pinterest looking for something to whip up.

This weekend, the result was Country Apple Fritter Bread or as I took to calling it when stuffing my face with the second piece, Perfect Gooey Cinnamon Apple Bread of Heaven.
