I really enjoy making bread in the colder months. This loaf is one that I have played with a lot and it works no matter what I do to it. I have added nuts, vanilla, cinnamon/ginger, changed the apples to dried cherries( non sugared). I have used applebutter in place of applesauce and trimmed down the honey. Well, you get the idea. 8" cake pans are the perfect thing for baking this bread. It will make 3 loaves.
