This was my mom's recipe that she would make every fall after visiting the apple orchard. The aroma as it bakes is unbelievable!

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
This is a great, moist bread for breakfast or just a delicious quick snack. The top of the cake has a slight crunch when you take a bite which I loved!
