If you love apples this bread is for you! I have had people fight over the last piece! LOL

I ususally make this in the fall when apple picking is in season, but it's a request I get often.

You can pretty much use any apples you like but I prefer to use Northern Spy, Jonagold, Jonathan, Honey Crisp, or Pink Lady.

Enjoy!
