"I've had this recipe clipped for a long time and finally made this bread. I don't know what took me so long, because it is very good. The caramel topping isn't too overpowering and the bread has great apple flavor. I substituted plain non-fat greek yogurt for the fat-free plain yogurt and it still tasted great. Great bread for fall."
