"The absolute apple bread ever! My family loves it."
"wonderful ! will definitely make again"
"Moist and delicious. the praline glaze makes it a treat for those with a sweet tooth. Toasting the pecans gives them a flavorful crunch."
"This bread is SO good and a nice change from banana bread during the fall/winter!!"
"Loved this, especially the topping. Took to work for treat day and it was a big hit."
"I think if there were a little cinnamon in the bread it self it would tie the two together. The recipe was simple but the two didn't go together. The bread by it self with a little butter would be a great breakfast treat tosted but to bland to hold up under all that sweetness. Won't make again."
"Became an instant best-loved recipe with the entire family; fabulous; easy to make!! One large Granny Smith did the trick!"
"Tasty. I wish they would tell you how many apples instead of a cup measure - I'm sure it's more accurate, but I would like to know that my two apples would be enough before I started. (they were). Mine took longer than the recipe states, but I think my pan was the wrong size."
