Apple Toffee Bread

Apple Toffee Bread: Savory Sweet and Satisfying

This frosting, oh my goodness, so delicious. Now that's not to say the bread was not delicious. The bread could have been eaten without the frosting and would be just as delicious. It was sweet and moist, but the frosting, oh my the frosting.
