Better With Cheddar - Apple Bread

Cassie *


This recipe was tweaked by me, from a cookbook I purchased last Fall from a local Apple Festival I always attend. I like my changes better than the original...It's quite the delicious bread. I made this loaf for my mom, as a nice surprise, she loves it...
