  • Barb, thanks for moving the above recipe.
  • No problem, Maryann! I'll have to make this SOON! Looks SO good.
    Have you ever tried it as muffins instead of loaves?
  • No I've always made loaves. But it would probably be just as good. It doesn't last very long, it's addicting.
  • Maryann, you rock!!! Thanks so much for sharing this are so generous!

    Hugs, janet
  • Janet, you are welcome. I hope you enjoy this. We sure do.
    My kids expect this every Christmas.
  • Bilby has given a blue ribbon to Raggd3 for her Apple Bread.

    Congrats Maryann, I will be trying this.

    Thank you Kathy for being a recipe tester and testing this recipe.
  • This was good, I didn't do it as a loaf I made it in a slice tray, it rose to about an inch-ish thick, I baked it for 45 mins.
    I cut into squares and served with ice cream for dessert, was very yummy, will definitely make again. We had it cold with our ice cream but it would have been great with it warm out of the oven to
    A fraction on the sweet side so would do less sugar.
  • Thank you, Bilby, for the ribbon. And thank you Kathy for testing and Sharon for the congrats.
    Sometimes we eat it cold with a little butter, but mostly warm from the oven.
    The grandkids like it with whipped cream.
  • Congrats Mary Ann. This sounds good.. I'm going to have to pick up apples at the store so I can try it.
