The flavor is very good. I tried 3 times to make this bread. Every time it completely fell apart when I removed it from the pan. I tried adjusting the amount of apples, switched the type of flour. Nothing helped. Any suggestions??

This bread could be used as a secret weapon. Have you done something unforgivable to a friend/spouse/foreign country? Just bake them a loaf of this bread and they will forget why they hated you so much. I'm not joking. It's that good. It could probably perform miracles. The only suggestion that I have is to increase the baking time. Just cook it until it looks done. You'll know when that time has come because you will hear angels singing when you open your oven door (or until all of the moisture is off the top).

I expected this to be spectacular based on the other reviews, but it turned out terribly for me. First of all, the cooking time seemed to be way off. I baked it at 300 degrees. I made it into 1 loaf and 2 mini-loaves which seemed to work size-wise, but the mini loaves took about 55 minutes to be done in the middle, and the large loaf took more like 1.5 hrs. It came out dry and crumbly. All of the loaves pretty much fell apart when I took them out. I think that this needs a little experimentation with the cooking temp/time, as well as some more liquid added to the recipe. I am baffled at the reviews that say their loaves came out moist!

After being married to me for 51 years, my husband fell in love again. Wondered about the 300 degree oven, but just added about 10 minutes to cooking time

Great recipe, but I did change a few things. I used slightly less than 1 cup oil, only 1 cup sugar, and added 1/4-cup buttermilk. I topped the bread with a little Trubino Sugar just before putting in the oven. It was exceptionally good.

I found some apples in the fridge and REFUSED to throw them away. Man was I lucky to find those apples, and THIS recipe. It tastes amazing!!
But... I had to bake my bread for 2 hours, I'm thinking because the temp was so low. But because it was so low the apples were cooked and so very good.

OMG! so moist! i substituted brown sugar for regular sugar, used apple sauce instead of oil, and used a little extra cinnamon! It was amazing!! best apple bread i've ever had. the batter comes out thick but dont worry, thats what makes it so moist!

This is a really good recipe. I actually made it using 1/3/4 cups Splenda and 1/4 cup sugar. I also added one mashed banana. I will definitely make it again.

This is a GREAT bread recipe, and is SO easy to make!! The dough is definitely not as runny as other recipes, but it is perfect as-is! I didn't add a full cup of nuts, simply because I don't care for them that much. I added only 1/4 cup of FINELY chopped pecans. The bread turned out just wonderful! So tasty!

I made this to one up my roommate when she made banana walnut bread, and OMG. Everyone fell in love with it. I even brought it over to my ex and he almmost drooled over it. Its so much better after it's been in the fridge overnight for breakfast. At my ex's suggestion, I'm making it a second time with a cream cheese icing.
I changed only a few things in my recipe. One, i added dates which gave a very nice complexity. While making the batter, I thought it was WAY to thick, i could barely get a spoon out of it,so i added a little more oil and a half cup of water. The batter was perfect consistency after. I think that the extra oil gave a it a very nice crust to the outside while keeping the inside melt in your mouth good. Definitely try this one!
