I just made this and my house smells so good! Here is what I did...I did 1/2 white sugar and 1/2 brown sugar instead of all white to give a darker color. I also added 1/2 tsp more cinnamon b/c it just seemed like it needed more! On top of that I used cinnamon apple sauce. I also used buttermilk instead of milk b/c I usually use buttermilk when baking breads and it makes the bread even more dense & moist! I did not add the cinnamon sugar to the bottom, instead during the last 15 min of baking I added it on top to give a nice sweet crunch. The end result?...YUMMY! Read More

Yes this bread was moist but it was not a very good tasting bread. In fact I believe the vanilla pudding made this bread have a horrible aftertaste. I would not make this one again. Too bad because it sounded so good and tasty. Read More

This bread is fabulous - SO delicious and very moist. I do make a few changes. I'm a huge cinnamon fan so I use 1 tablespoon of it, 1 c brown sugar, 1 c white, and only the 3.4 oz package of vanilla pudding mix. I make 1 loaf, which usually takes 70 minutes in my oven and 1 dozen muffins which take 20-25 minutes. I've been asked for this recipe many times. Thanks :) Read More

I made this recipe with only splenda and a light applesauce so that my girlfriend's father who is a diabetic could eat it. Everyone loved it! My girlfriend is my test subject for all of my new/try if for the first time recipes...and she said this one is definately a keeper!!! I agree!!! Read More

Excellent find! This is delicious! I may give these loaves out at the holidays instead of the usual banana bread. I used a 4 oz./individual size cinnamon applesauce from my son's lunch packs - so easy! I didn't measure the cinnamon sugar out to dust the pans I just sprinkled the amount I liked. I topped one of the loaves with cinnamon sugar the other without; we preferred the taste of the one with but thought that the without looked prettier - go figure! My oven is rather hot these were done to perfection in 55 minutes. Thank you TS for taking the time to post this will go in my recipe box! Mmmmmmmm:-) Read More

This is wonderful. It seems simple enough and it is but it comes together very nicely. Not too high in fat either. I have to recommend a streusel topping to really kick it up to ultimate: mix oatmeal flour sugar butter and sprinkle on top. Read More

this bread is great and so forgiving! I only had a 3.1 oz. package of french vanilla instant pudding mix and used that and the batter was still nice and thick. I used half brown/half white sugar for a darker looking loaf. In lieu of the sugar mixture on the bottom I borrowed the cinnamon sugar mixture on top from the cinnamon bread I recipe here on allrecipes. It smells wonderful baking and came out so nicely from the pans that I sprayed with baking spray. They rose very nicely and look like a picture. These are off into care packages so I am not sure of the taste but the batter sure tasted great! and 5 stars for presentation! this recipe is a keeper and I'll try the sugar bottom mix. next time.

Delicious! Even better on day two. The only changes I made in my futile attempts at cooking healthier was to cut the sugar amount to just over 1 1/2 cups and a cup of that was Splenda. I also used cinnamon applesauce since thats all I had. I made 9 muffins and one medium sized loaf. The muffins took about 22 minutes. I had just purchased Country Crock Cinnamon spread and I had myself a little slice of heaven for breakfast! Thanks so much... this is a keeper! Read More

Very good and extremely easy for a novice baker! I increased the applsauce to 3/4 c. and decreased the oil to 1/4 c. but other than that made it exactly as directed. Has a nice "spicy" flavor and is great eaten warm with cream cheese. Thanks! Read More

FABULOUS! So moist and delicious! I used one cup of brown sugar and one cup of white sugar a tablespoon of ground cinnamon and added some pumpkin pie spice to the bottom of the loaf pan. I'm sure this would be good with cream cheese but it was great served warm with butter. We'll be having this for Christmas breakfast - thanks for the recipe! Read More
