MY REVIEW

Very good flavor but a little too sweet. Next time I will cut the sugar and trim the bread crust.

I made this for breakfast today. It was delicious. I used one cup of maple syrup and one cup of brown sugar. I didn't peel the apples, used galas. Everyone loved it. A keeper recipe. Janet

I prepped this for the Taste of Home Cooking School at Turning Stone Casino yesterday. It smelled amazing! It was fairly simple to make. The most "work" is peeling and chopping the apples. You can never go wrong with apples and caramel :)

MY REVIEW

We all loved this. It was a featured recipe in the TOH Cooking School I attended last week, and I knew I had to make it right away with the Asian pears we had picked last weekend and my husband's homemade cinnamon bread. I bet it is fantastic with apples also, but with pears it is to die for. Love it!
