Sharon's Story

Got this from a friend this weekend. I love cinnamon, so this is a new favorite for me. I love it just as written. Some people have made comments that they felt this is better with about 1/4- 1/2 teaspoon salt. It's your call. Make it yours.


1/3 c
brown sugar, not packed
1 tsp
cinnamon, ground
2/3 c
white sugar
1/2 c
butter, softened

    Hi Sharon, this looks great. I have two apple trees and they are loaded down. This would be a great loaf for giving out to friends and family. I don't thing it will hurt to freeze it, did you think? You have been PINCHED!!!

    Good morning, Bob. I think it would freeze OK. I miss my days of apple trees in the yard. My grandpa had a red apple and yellow apple tree, a cherry tree, and a concord grape vine. We had a peach tree. That was when I was young and living in Denver. No apple trees in South Texas!

    I am afraid I am getting a bit tired of people posting pictures with out giving credit to there they got the picture. There are TWO identical recipes posted right after each other using the same picture. Unusual...same as Doris Fisher's apple cinnamon loaf.
