How To Know If This Dessert Bread Is Done 

You can stick a toothpick in the center of the bread. If it comes out clean with no dough on it, the apple pie bread is done. 

You can also see the bread turns a golden color on top, and will begin to pull away from the edges of the pan.

How to Serve Up Apple Pie Bread 

There are so many ways you can serve up this bread. I will share some of my family’s favorite ways for you to try out! 

  • Ice Cream | Add a dollop of ice cream to the side of this dessert bread. It is similar to a cake with ice cream, especially if you eat it warm from the oven. 
  • Nuts and Caramel | Drizzle caramel sauce over the bread followed by some pecans or even walnuts. Such a crunchy and sweet treat. 
  • Butter | Or maybe you want something simple. Add a dollop of butter on your bread and slice and serve that way.

No matter how you serve up this apple pie bread it is sure to be a treat. 

Storing Leftover Bread 

Since this apple bread has fruit in it, I tend to like to store it in the refrigerator. I find that it extends the shelf by a day or two longer.

If you want to eat it warm just toss it in the microwave for a handful of seconds to warm it up a bit. 

Can You Freeze This Dessert Bread 

Apple dessert bread will freeze well. Just allow your bread to fully cool. Then transfer into an airtight container or even freezer bag.

Store in the freezer for around 2-3 months. Or if you own a food saver system you can extend the freezer life dramatically.
