Yummy and easy. I will be making this often as my family loved it. Thanks, Nancy!
I was disappointed in this recipe. First of all, I found a pie dish to be much too small. I had to use a 2 qt. dish. Second, I think the apples and the bread needed to be mixed together and not layered. I think it would have come out better that way. I will do that next time. The overall flavor was pretty good. Not my favorite recipe.
I agree with susan529, cherries taste better than raisins. Tried it with plain white bread since I had no cinammon bread, came out good anyway. Thanks.
