Apple Cinnamon Bread

Here in Arizona there is a small hint of fall in the air. We have even seen temperatures drop to the upper 70’s at night. So it must be time for fall decorations, drinking hot chocolate, and eating everything apple. The new crop of apples have hit the store, which gave me an idea about a new bread; Whole Wheat Apple Cinnamon Bread. Baking for several days this week, I now have a yummy apple bread. I start by grinding wheat berries into flour, hand chopped apples, cinnamon, honey, olive oil, gluten flour and a little sugar come together to make this amazing fall bread. Slicing the bread, an abundance of apples can be seen swirled throughout the loaf. This bread will be offered at The Simple Farm in Scottsdale this fall.Image

Once I turned the slices, I added shredded Pecorino Romano to melt. When the bread was toasty, I took it off the grill and added the tomato mixture on top. YUMMY!!!
