If you’re running low on time, don’t brown the butter. Melt it in the microwave. The bread will not have the distinctive browned butter flavor, but the result is still delicious. The size of the apple dices are up to you. I prefer smaller apple bites. Nuts would also be a nice addition to this bread. However, we are a tree-nut free kitchen due to food allergies and I have not experimented with this addition.
