Everybody who tasted this bread served at a meeting I was at came up and complimented me and wanted the recipe. Forget the fruitcakes this Christmas, this recipe is dense and rich. I added pecans to this recipe and the result was elegant and understated awesome. Besides slicing and chopping apples the recipe is "a piece of cake!" If you are looking for attention and accolades from friends and family this recipe will bring it to you! P.S. I used granny smith apples and the results were amazing. Barbara Sarasota, Fl.
