  • Bake 30 to 35 minutes, or until the top is golden and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

This turned out beautifully! I used a Fuji apple because that's what I always have around the house and regular raisins and plain Mott's applesauce (again what I had.) This turned out moist and delicious plus it made my house smell heavenly. It would be good with some nuts in it too and I might try that next time. My only issue was that I should have doubled it because we ate most of it while watching Sunday night football! This recipe rocks - I almost always have the ingredients in the house and it's super simple. Will definitely make again! Read More

I made this with two changes - I grated the apples and used nutmeg instead of cloves. I would likely cut up the apples next time. I thought that it was more like a tea bread than a square. I was looking for something to serve with ice cream. Read More

I love this recipe it was moist and so delicious with my morning coffee I used a bundt pan and mixed in a separate bowl a half a cup of brown sugar and a third cup of melted butter and two tablespoons of maple syrup and poured that on the bottom of the greased bundt pan and sprinkled chopped walnuts over it then poured the batter over it. Then when done it was flipped upside down onto a plate. Read More
