Reviews forApple Yeast Bread
"I needed something for a harvest gathering. This fit the bill nicely.I ended up cutting the apples in round slices. When mine was done it looked deceptively like pineapple upside-down cake. The taste was good and not overwhelmingly sweet like pinapple upside-down.This recipe is great! I did add some nutmeg to mine though.I'm gluten free but I had to try it anyway. I'll be looking for a way to make this with gluten free ingredients. Will definitely make again."
