Just made this recipe with fresh Michigan Apples. Love the taste and texture. I will definitely make it again. I doubled the recipe so it was a little hard to mix but worth the effort.

Turned out great. We have it with ice-cream. I can't get it to be fluffy like in the photo. I think I'll use less oil and and little more flour.

I have made this reciepe a dozen times now. I am totally doing something wrong. Its always very thick and never cooks all the way. But i use it as the base for apple bread bread pudding and people just rave about it and want the reciepe.

Sorry for changing the recipe. I only added 1-1/2 c sugar to hand picked Macintosh apples. Also used neighbors farm fresh brown eggs. Fabulous!!!

I just made this. It is a keeper. I used 2 large Fuji apples and extra light olive oil instead of canola. I put a little lemon juice on the apples so they wouldn’t turn brown. I also left off 1/2 cup of the sugar because I don’t like my sweet breads so sweet. It still turned out marvelous.

great start to a recipe! i did half of it because i was making 3 other loaves of bread and made sure everything was halved correctly. the batter turned out crumbly, but i added 3/4 cup of apple cider and it turned out delicious!

I have made this recipe 2-3 times by now and everyone absolutely loves it! The one thing I have discovered though is that the bread doesn’t need to be backed for a full 55 mins. I usually check after 40 mins and by then it is usually cooked just right.

Very good and a great way to use up some apples perhaps a bit past their prime. I, too found the batter to be very thick, even after stirring in the apples and walnuts, but I kept stirring and it got a bit better. It is a dense bread and we really liked it. I froze one loaf for later and it freezes very well.

Its fine, but all I taste is sugar and walnuts. I will try it with less sugar, fewer walnuts, and some whole wheat flour next time. Also, it took about 1 hour 15 minutes before the toothpick came out dry. To the reviewer before me, I also halved the recipe; yes, the batter is thick (as the recipe says it will be), but you were trying to mix the apples and walnuts in the batter, where the directions said to just fold them in. No need to get your hands messy. If it didn't rise, that's a baking soda/baking powder issue.
