This was good. I used honey and brown sugar, with a scant touch of cinnamon.

This was surprisingly good. I didn't think I would like the addition of the bread, but actually I really enjoyed it. It was a nice balance to the sweetness of the apple. I'm not sure that it'll be a staple in our house, as no one else likes cooked apples, but it'll definitely be a once in a while treat. Thanks! Made for ZWT7.
