I like the idea of butter in a quick bread, but experience has shown me that you compromise some moistness. Breads made with oil are simply a lot more moist. I used half white and half brown sugar and, because I wasn't keen on the cloves, substituted pumpkin pie spice. I added about 2/3 c. dried cherries (really nice!) and glazed the warm bread with 1 c. powdered sugar and 2 T. half and half. All in all a good bread, and pretty too, but I think next time I might try adding about 2 T. of oil to the batter for additional moistness without sacrificing that great buttery flavor.


I made this recipe twice. The first time I followed it exactly with white sugar and baked it for the full hour. My bread was great, but a little burnt on the bottom. The second time I substituted half of the white sugar with brown sugar and reduced the bake time to 45 minutes. It was just perfect!!


Loved this recipe. I did use brown sugar instead of white and shredded my apples instead of chopping. It turned out simply lovely. Thanks for the recipe!
