Apple cinnamon bread with hazelnuts

Apple bread or apple cake, what’s in a name right? It does not really matter how you name this cinnamon-y apple loaf and I’m sure you will think so too after you’ve eaten a slice. Cinnamon, apples and hazelnuts, does it get any more autumnal? Not for me. So get baking, make yourself a cup of tea and cuddle up under a blanket and enjoy the taste of autumn.
