Mom and Dad showing off their Golden Delicious
4 bags of apples later (Empire and Golden Delicious) as well as a Dutch Apple Pie and Cherry Pie from Julian Pie Company, we headed back home.... Now WHAT to do with all of these apples?
I love baking breads--they are my favorite to eat in the morning with a cup of coffee..and I can pack them in the kids lunches as well. This turned out delicious and I doubled the recipe because of the ABUNDANCE of apples we have at the house. This bread is nice and sweet and I do think you can cut back on the sugar if you'd like..especially if your apples are nice and sweet....I attempted to add a bit more "healthy" to the recipe by using whole wheat flour in addition to all purpose. Never change the entire amount of flour in a recipe to whole wheat--but halving the amount with whole wheat works fine.
