This turned out well! Based on previous reviews I added 1/2tsp cinnamon, 1/2tsp allspice, and a few ground up cloves. I also doubled the tartest apples I could find and added about 1/2C crushed pistachios (I didn't have any other nuts), next time I will add more pistachios. I baked it for 48 minutes so the center still wasn't baked through (how my family likes it) and it was a hit!

I love this bread. Use apples that bake well, like a granny smith. I like cinnamon, so added about 1/2 tsp to batter. This make a lovely loaf. It freezes well, and makes a great gift in smaller loaves.

I did not care for this bread. I don't think it had enough apples. It tasted on the dry side, and didn't have much taste. I am surprised by the rave reviews.

I added cinnamon and allspice to the batter as I thought it would give the apples a punch. It did! I will also add next time a little cloves. The topping was perfect as I did not want an excessively sweet topping. I made 8 little loaves but found that they were a little crumbly when cut into slices. I may have to add another egg.

Lacked a little something- maybe add cinnamon to the bread portion not just the topping. I also think I would make an additional half batch of the topping to layer among the dough before baking. Overall- good but not great.

This was easy and really good I had a mix of apples from apple picking so I used a few different kinds. It turned out great and I'm going to make this in mini loafs to freeze and give as gifts. My whole family loved it and my husband put apple butter on ti and and he said it made it even better.

After reading all the rave reviews I was very disappointed in this recipe. It is rare I come across a TOH recipe I don't like. Mine had very little taste to it. I think it needs more apples and the topping was not as sweet as I thought it would be. Even hubby didn't care for it. Have to give it 2 stars. :(

I was very impressed with this bread. I took it out at 55 minutes, and it seemed to be perfect. My loaf had more of a crumb topping than the picture shows. Excellent.
