They key to this recipe is the "shredded apple". Shredded apple adds a LOT of liquid. Also the shredding yields more liquid than chopping. If you are going to substitute other fruits for the apple i recommend something that is equilly as moist as an apple; such as zucchini, fresh peaches, carrots or any other moist fruit (shredded). Dried fruits will not work without added liquid.

What did I do wrong? The bread came out very dense and hard. Is three cups the right amount of flour?? The taste was good, though. That's why I gave a good rating.

I had the same problem as the first review. It came out very dry and heavy. I made mine with apples and cranberries. Should there be something added to give it more moistness?

Simple recipe that takes barely any time or effort. I used bananas and it turned out great.

This is a very versitle recipe that allows you to experiment with a variety of ingredients. You can use this recipe over and over again and your results will always be unique. (My kids LOVE this recipe and always beg to help me make it.)

This recipe was ok, but I was not overly impressed. There's WAY too much flour; I had to add about 1/2 cup of milk to the batter to mix in all the flour. I don't think I'll try this one again.
