Dinner Tonight: Cinnamon Apple Bread


The redoubtable Su Johnson submitted this recipe for Cinnamon Apple Bread, which she says “is very moist.” One ingredient, though, is hard to find: cinnamon baking chips. “ You will find the cinnamon chips by the chocolate chips — when you can find them,” she write. When she does find them, she is sure to stock up on them just for this recipe.
