This is so good!! I'd give it more stars if I could! It's got great texture, and the flavors really stand out. My hubby eats a piece of banana bread every morning with his coffee, and I was looking for something to give him a break from the plain banana bread. He loved it, so now I have to make loaves of banana bread as well as this bread, but I don't mind a all. Great recipe! thanks blu for another fantastic recipe! I loved the fact that the apples were sauteed first, as it gave the bread great texture!
