Yum! This is soooo easy and would fool any vegetable hater. I've made this a couple times using brown bread. First time I just lowered the sugar, second I replaced it with stevia - making it uber healthy. Tastes great even without the apple (but even better with)! Recipe is easily halved. I baked it in my 1.5 quart Crockpot on low for 6 hours (4h30 for half recipe). Very convenient for those allergic to lactose. Thank you, thank you for sharing!!!
