This is our fall favorite. Unfortunately our two apple trees are very early apples which cannot be stored for more than two or three weeks, so we have tons of apples which have to be eaten, canned, preserved or made into cake within a fortnight... I don't know where I got this recipe from, but I've made it for more then ten years now and no matter how many loaves I make, they vanish rapidly. Although I cannot eat this bread anyway, I make it gluten free, using gluten free cake flour mix. It works well with a mix of brown, white and sweet rice flour plus some arrowroot starch (just use your preferred gluten free cake flour mix), but making it gluten free means adding an egg or egg replacer, too, or it won't stick together. Prep time doesn't include overnight soaking time.
