Banana bread has been a popular bake for a few years now. However, as I try not to use imported fruit in my baking, I set myself the challenge of making something similar with local fruit. The result was this apple bread with a delicious hazelnut topping. Whether it's a bread or a cake is a matter of contention, but it tastes great either way and makes a wonderful dessert, breakfast or snack.
