MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 4, 2013

"I made this recipe with early apples (more tart) from my grandpa's orchard and it turned out wonderful! I took it to work and everyone asked me for the recipe! !!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 6, 2013

"This was fantastic! I did wind up adding more applesauce because the batter seemed dry."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 12, 2012

"Like others suggested, I used 1 cup of unsweetened applesauce and added 1 cup of mashed banana and more cinnamon & vanilla (personal preference). Omitted topping but sprinkled mini chocolate chips on top -- might add to batter next time! Preferred this to the first one which I made by directions -- good but not as moist!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 5, 2012

"I used Splenda in place of the sugar to lower the calories and doubled the apple sauce to increase the moisture. It was wonderful and will be my go-to recipe for left over apples!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 8, 2012

"I make this bread often, I usually double the amount of apple sauce for a more moist bread. It never last long in our house."
