Apple Cinnamon Swirl Bread

This year for Christmas we are in the homemade mood! We are making gifts and even ornaments for our tree.

We made some applesauce cinnamon spice ornaments that smell oh so good!
Then we soaked some sliced apples in a mixture of water, lemon, and salt and sprinkled them with cinnamon and put them in the dehydrator. Oh the smells were so good!! I was wishing they weren't just for the tree!

I decided we must make something edible that smelled that good! So here you have it Apple Cinnamon Swirl Bread! It was super Simple and it is very very Tasty! Of course I don't need to mention it's also Healthy! ;)

Apple Cinnamon Swirl Bread

Here is what I did! I used my Best Yet Whole Wheat Bread recipe, only I added 1/4 cup Sucanat when I put in the honey for a touch of extra sweetness. Just so you know this is still bread not cake. If you want it more like cake you will have to figure that out. I really like the not too sweet but sweet enough home cooked bread flavor! ;) I let the dough rise in the bowl until double and while it was rising I chopped up a couple of apples I didn't bother to peel them. After the bread had rose I punched it down and split it in half. I took the first half and made a loaf width rectangle then I sprinkled it with some Sucanat and cinnamon then I put some of the chopped apples on top of that sprinkled with a little more Sucanat and cinnamon then rolled it up and shaped it into a loaf and put it in a loaf pan. Then I did the same thing with the other loaf only I added a few raisins with the apples. I then set them in a barley warm then turned off oven to let rise until double again. Once they rose I turned the oven on to 350 degrees and baked them for about 35 minutes or until golden brown. It's a great twist on your same old whole wheat bread and fills the house with wonderful scents!
