I found this recipe on another web site while looking for a recipe to use up some apples my neighbor had given me. It looked like it would be alot like banana bread, which my family loves so I gave it a try. OMG this puts banana bread to shame. We all love it. And while it's cooking, the house smells divine! I won't be able to make it often, I keep going back for more.

Rich and moist! I reduced sugar by half in both batter and topping. Wish I had not reduced the sugar in the topping. I used half applesauce and half oil. Next time I would make bread day before so the apple taste would intensify. Used gala apples. Mine took 50 minutes to bake. TY for sharing.
I subbed applesauce for all of the oil and we all really enjoyed this loaf. It is easy to make and tastes great. Thanks for the recipe.
I have made this twice now in a few days...everyone LOVES it! The shredded apples really make all the difference inthe texture. We like a Gala/MacIntosh apple combo. DELICIOUS! Thanks for a fabulous recipe!
