Great recipe! I used tart green apples, since that's what we like best around here, and rather than grate them, I diced them. The only other change I made was using a full teaspoon of cinnamon. Finally, after the loaf cooled, I hit it with a basic vanilla drizzle.

Yes, a great go-to recipe I will use often. I used half whole-wheat flour and added extra apples and extra spices- mixed spice, nutmeg, ground ginger. It came out a bit crumbly, which I like. I doubled the recipe to make two extra 1-pound loaves for the neighbors who also loved it. It's great warmed for breakfast or in a packed lunch, too.<br/><br/>Thanks for the great recipe!

I have made this twice now - Love It! I use Smart Balance in place of butter; 1/2 cup brown sugar 1/4 cup Splenda; eggbeaters; 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour 1/2 cup whole wheat flour; add 1/2 cup butterscotch chips in with the 1/2 walnuts. So Delicious!
