    Good recipe. I used only all-purpose flour, as I didn't have wheat flour, and it turned out fine. Baked mini-loaves instead of two regular sized. If you do that, you'll need to cut baking time from 70 minutes to about 40 minutes or so. Keep checking frequently once you've hit 35 minutes to make sure the sides don't burn.  -  31 Mar 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    We LOVE this bread. I didn't use whole wheat flour, because I didn't have any, and I followed the advice of some other reviewers and used a 1/2 cup of oil and a 1/2 cup of applesauce--and it turned out great. So moist and apple-y. Next time I will add a 1/2 tsp or so of allspice to make it taste even more like apple pie. And I may toast the walnuts, too.  -  11 Apr 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    We loved this bread & it didn't last very long. Although I would suggest chopping the apples not too fine.  -  14 Dec 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
