Good recipe. I used only all-purpose flour, as I didn't have wheat flour, and it turned out fine. Baked mini-loaves instead of two regular sized. If you do that, you'll need to cut baking time from 70 minutes to about 40 minutes or so. Keep checking frequently once you've hit 35 minutes to make sure the sides don't burn.

I followed the recipe exactly as is- these are dry muffins and a bit sweet.

We LOVE this bread. I didn't use whole wheat flour, because I didn't have any, and I followed the advice of some other reviewers and used a 1/2 cup of oil and a 1/2 cup of applesauce--and it turned out great. So moist and apple-y. Next time I will add a 1/2 tsp or so of allspice to make it taste even more like apple pie. And I may toast the walnuts, too.

We loved this bread & it didn't last very long. Although I would suggest chopping the apples not too fine.

Excellent bread and healthy. Used also 1/2 cup of apple sauce and 1/2 cup of oil. Decreased the sugar to 1 1/2 cup and the salt to 3/4 teaspoon. All my friends wanted the recipe! Thank you.

This bread is moist, apply, nutty, and yummy. It improved a lot after a day or two. I followed the suggestions to use half whole wheat and half white flour, and half oil and half applesauce. My cooking time was 60 minutes at 300 degrees. A recipe worth saving, thanks!

This was very good; but I baked it at 350 (I've never baked a quick bread at 300)and the baking time was much less than stated - more like 50-55 min. - Oh and I also used 1/2 cup applesauce and modified the oil accordingly. Everybody loved it.

I took the suggestion to go 1/2 & 1/2 on the oil and applesauce and I used all-purpose white flour only. It took 70 minutes to cook. This came out so moist & yummy. I am making more to give as Chirstmas gifts at the office.
