  • In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the honey and eggs. In a separate bowl, sift together the whole wheat flour, all-purpose flour, baking powder, soda and salt. Add the flour mixture to the butter and egg mixture; mix until combined. Fold in the apple, cheese and walnuts. Spoon batter into prepared pan.

  • Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 50 to 60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean. Turn the loaf out onto a wire rack and let cool completely.

This is an excellent bread. I used apples from our own trees and the aroma of the loaves as they were baking was delightful. Read More

This was OK. The combination of cheese & apple just did not work for us (I guess we're just more into apple & cinnamon). I can understand how someone with different tastes could appreciate it more though. Read More

Incredible recipe. I can't give it the full five stars but only because I had to vary the recipe a bit with the ingredients I had on hand. I made mine with two VERY large Gala apples and didn't want to shred them so I just minced them really well. I also used cheddar instead of Swiss just because I had a bag of cheddar I had to get rid of. I didn't know how much 4oz. would be so I added a good large 3 or 4 handfuls of the cheese. And I definetly recommend spraying or greasing the pan pretty well in response to a previous reviewer. I did and it slid out no problem. Even with my changes the flavours blended subtely and beautifuly especially with the whole-wheat flour in there. I plan on making this again and again and I'll definetly try with GrannySmith and Swiss considering I put those on wraps for breakfast! Read More

great recipe.....I too omitted the walnuts as I am not a nut fan and it still was great...my family was surprised that apples and swiss cheese combined in a bread would turn out so yummy...great with a light white wine;) Read More

OK...WOW! This is by far the best bread I've ever had. I omitted the nuts and I think that it would have been too weird with them. Definitely try this one! Read More

The only reason I didn't rate this recipe 5 stars is that I had a serious sticking problem. I ended up breaking both loaves in half removing them from the pan. It may be that apples and cheddar are a natural combination for me it may be that I despise Swiss cheese in anything or it may be that cheddar is what I had on hand but I used sharp cheddar in this recipe. It was delicious. Also used a combination of apples on hand (Spy Winesap Johnathon) instead of Granny Smith which is bland when cooked. Read More

I made the recipe as is except I chopped both the cheese and the apple and did not grate them. It is a wonderful bread and I would make it again. Read More
