"Quick, easy,moist and delicious. Added some extra apples."

"My daughter wanted Pumpkin Bread, I had some apples to use, so I needed a good mix. This was very good, my Husband is raving about it. I made two loaves with the whole can, and added a little homemade chunky applesauce to replace the extra oz that I needed. Chopped up 4 med apples (it was to much but I added it anyway) and omitted the walnuts due to school allergies, I wanted to send some to school. Everything else I kept the same, essentially there were no changes."
