Cardamom Apple Bread

Cardamom Apple BreadCardamom Apple BreadI am obsessed with cardamom. It's by far my favorite spice, and I always try to find ways to use it. I even put it in my latte the other day- NO JOKE. It was amazing, by the way. Autumn is finally here, and I couldn't be happier. I obviously love summer, but fall is so fresh and crisp. Perfect for sweaters and boots and coffee dates and...spices! Perfect for cardamom is what I really mean. So, inspired by this recipe and this recipe, I set out to make a delicious apple bread with my most beloved spice. It is SO GOOD.
