I thought I would share my Apple bread recipe. This recipe has been handed down. It is my sisters recipe that I tweaked. It tastes more like a cake due to its moistness. I have brought this to school bake sales. I have given it to teachers, and neighbors. I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as my friends and family do.
