"Well I've moved on from banana and zucchini bread as we enter fall and made this Apple Bread recipe using apples from our local Apple Hill in Camino, CA... what a treat! I think I may try incorporating a cream cheese swirl the next time...just for fun and extra flair!"

"I added milk to the recipe and one more egg. I just added enough to give it a cake like batter consistency. I have it in the oven now. Just waiting to see how it turns out."

"I have never heard of apple bread before but it is really good and with going into apple season this is great - I used Granny Smith apples - it was awesome"

"Good recipe, the only I added a small mixture of cinnamon and sugar to the bottom of the loaf pans before pouring in the batter and then sprinkled some on top before putting it in the oven. Gave it a nice flavor, will definitely make it again."

"Everyone who tried this really liked it a lot. The only change I had to make was large bread loaf took a little longer to bake. I am about to make a second batch."
