I love the name apple bread — it carries me off in my fantasy to some very green hills with chunky plates and jugs of fresh cream, with rosy-cheeked children skipping about here and there. It is perfect for snacks, breakfast, with a meal or as a meal with a few chunks of cheese. And maybe even a small pile of fresh blueberries and indeed another pile of fresh cream would be lovely with it. This keeps for several days, well wrapped up. I find it’s an excellent healthy snack to have on hand to give to a suddenly starving child. I often send a bit for school snacks as well as banana bread.
