Love this recipe. So simple and so delicious. I did put in a half of cup of sugar and then in the topping less sugar then it called for. Very good. Can I freeze it ?

I made this for Christmas for my husband and to give out as a treat. It was a tremendous hit! Inmad some other breads/loafs too, but this one by far was the star! Everyone raved about this bread. I will be making this for my husband all the time now. I made it totally per the recipe and I will not change a thing. I might make them as a cupcake to try...

This is a wonderful moist apple bread. My family devoured it. I left out the nuts due to allergies. I plan on doubling the recipe and baking in mini loaf pans for Christmas gifts this year. Thank you for a good easy recipe.

Great recipe! I made a double batch one with Granny Smith apples and one with HoneyCrisp. This will be my new "go to" Apple bread recipe! My entire family loved it! I will be baking larger batches and freezing so I can have it when we want! It is so delicious warm with a smear of butter!
