Iced Orange Apple Bread Recipe

It’s a pleasure partnering with Fleischmann’s® Yeast today to bring you a recipe that’s perfect for Mother’s Day!

Baking is a love that runs in my family and I love to invite my mom over so we can bake together.  I can always count on a lot of laughs and great memories made in the kitchen and it’s such a great way to celebrate Mother’s Day together.  With this recipe, plan to double up and bake a little extra so there’s a delicious treat to enjoy right away and an extra loaf to send your mom home with to enjoy later.

Fleischmann’s® Yeast can be used for a variety of everyday and seasonal recipes.  Baking is a way to show how much you care for someone, so bake a little extra.
