This was my mom's recipe that she would make every fall after visiting the apple orchard. The aroma as it bakes is unbelievable!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

This iced cinnamon apple raisin bread tastes like fall in a quick bread. It's full of cinnamon apple flavor. We loved the added crunch from the walnuts. On top is an icing that adds the perfect balance of sweetness. An easy-to-make quick bread for breakfast or just a delicious quick snack.

How To Make iced cinnamon apple raisin bread

  • Greasing a pan while the oven preheats.
    Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease an 8x4 loaf pan.
  • Batter ingredients combined and poured into a loaf pan.
    In a large bowl, combine all bread ingredients. Pour into prepared pan.
  • Cinnamon apple bread baking in the oven.
    Bake at 350 degrees for 45-55 minutes. Test for doneness as oven temperatures vary. Remove from oven and allow to cool for 10-15 minutes. Remove from pan and place on cooling rack with waxed paper underneath.
  • Icing ingredients combined and poured over warm bread.
    While bread is still warm, combine icing ingredients and glaze allowing to drip over sides. Wait until cool, gently warm glaze in microwave and glaze one more time for a thicker glaze.
