I had a whole bunch of apples recently and needed to use them up so I took a zucchini bread recipe that I had and switched it up a but. What I got is a yummy, moist and healthy quick bread made from apples.

This is a GORGEOUS bread! It is so moist and flavorful and the cinnamon really sets it off! I used about double the amount of apples and reduced the sugar by half and that way it had a lovely fruity sweetness. It came together very quickly and easily and tasted just yummy! Thank you so much for sharing this lovely recipe! I will surely make this often again!

Well, it is out of the oven and cool enough to slice. It has a very chewy texture, but good flavor. I had a small amount of pecans on hand and added them to the topping. As I was chewing, I thought such a texture might be good for......French bread! How over the top would that be!

I added another teaspoon of cinnamon in the bread and used the sugar/cinnamon topping. It took longer to bake than the recipe says; mine took 45-50 minutes at 350 F. I thought the texture was a bit strange like other recipes that lack any fat in them. The bread was a bit rubbery. Some fat also has a keeping quality; no fat and it stales quickly. Next time I will add about 3 tablespoons of vegetable oil and perhaps an extra egg. The flavor of the bread is quite good. I might also add some pecans.
