Wow, I made this apple bread for my class at church and everyone loved it. The one in class who doesn't like sweets loved it so much he wants the recipe. I didn't make this applebutter because I already had some homemade apple butter. But I will definately be makeing this again (maybe as gifts too)

This was just awesome. It made my whole house smell just yummy... The only thing I did different was I didn't use the cloves; partly because I didn't have them and I am not really a big fan of the flavor. Absolutely great with the apple butter. Very tasty and it couldn't be all bad for you=)
