This recipe is for Apple bread but it works GREAT for Zucchini or pears! I love this recipe!! I like to add chocolate chips, Craisins, Cranberries, blueberries, Pecans, or any other chopped nuts. It makes two 8x4 loafs. But these are also fun to make in mini loafs and wrap and give as gifts to someone's birthday or to anyone who needs a "pick me up"! Like the Post Office Lady. They make great welcome to the neighborhood gifts and thank you gifts. Growing up Mom would make a bunch and we would deliver them to our neighbors at Christmas time! It is a great way to make someones day. Who wouldn't want a nice loaf of sweet bread? I hope you enjoy this recipe and I hope you share some to those people around you!
