Delicious! Rich-tasting because off all the eggs and oil. I sprinkled the top of the loaves with cinnamon sugar before baking and it made a delightful little sugary crust on top. My only suggestion is to bake it for 50 - 60 minutes, and check on it. I baked for 60 minutes without checking on it and it got a little overcooked. Otherwise a very yummy loaf of teatime bread!
WOW....I put this in the oven after supper last nite, mixed up quick and easy and 2 nice loaves. By half time of Monday night football, the kids and I had devoured one warm loaf! I managed to hide 2 slices for myself for lunch today, BUT I made the mistake of letting them sit on my desk and I kept picking at them until they were gone. That was before 9am. OMG I never thought when I looked at these just out of the oven that they would be so scrumptious. I did sprinkle the top with cinnamon and sugar, AND I used half oil and half unsweetened applesauce and baked about 50 minutes. Three Jonathan apples gave me over 2 cups but I dumped them all in anyway. Making 2 more loaves tonite! Fantastic!
This is a five star and more recipe! The flavour is great. I used 3 granny smith's apples, which did give me slightly over 2 cups, but I popped it all in anyway. And it turned out WONDERFUL. But I think i won't chop the apples up so fine the next time cos, it i would like to TASTE TASTE apple bits, but that is totally a personal preference. It had just the right amount of cinnamon. After popping the first one into the oven, the aroma was just over-whelming, I just HAD to go do another batch. And it was the right thing to do for sure. Four loaves, and I have only got half a loaf left in less than 7 hours. Everyone has attacked them. 5 stars and more!
