This was really good. Reminded me of a combination of appie pie and apple cake. I wasn't sure how well the kids were going to like it with the molasses (especially since the kind I had was "robust"), but they wolfed it down! I cut the recipe in half and baked it in a 9x5 loaf pan for the same amount of time as directed. I was done perfectly. There was a little left over that I had with some vanilla ice cream. Mmmmmmmmm!
