Debbie's amazing apple bread

    1 hour 15 min

    I was given this recipe years ago by my friend Debbie. I've had it written down on a torn piece of paper for years and decided today that this recipe needs to be on Allrecipes. It is a moist, sweet and delicious loaf cake.

    Really good! Super dense and moist so if you love that type of baked good you will love this. Next time I will add nuts because for me I think it would make it even better. Thanks for sharing!! UPDATE - I tried the bread with the nuts and suprisingly I did not like it as much. Made it a third time adding some raisins and absolutely loved the addition. Also increased the cinnamon to 2 tsp.  -  01 Apr 2013  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Very good -- dense and sweet. I consider it a dessert bread. The changes I made to the recipe was to use 2.5 cups of cubed McIntosh apples to which I added the juice of one lemon. I also added a teaspoon of lemon zest to the dry ingredients. I also used a full teaspoon of ground cinnamon.  -  13 Oct 2013  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I love this recipe, however, I have to admit, I changed it somewhat. My daughter had made this and said that she had replaced some of the oil with applesauce. One of the other comments said that it was awfully sweet, and I am trying to cut down on fat and sugar, so......I cut the sugar in half (only 1 cup), omitted the oil and put in 1 cup of applesauce. It turned out scrumptious!  -  30 Apr 2014  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
