This was served at a very remote location in the California Sierras for an intimate gathering of ~200 campers. Because of the scale, the birthday girl decided to substitute frozen peaches for the apples, and cranberries for the raisins. It was heaven! Everyone raved about it! I've made something like this before that did not call for fruit but after making it a couple of times I invented the apple slices on the top to help keep the bread from getting too crusty to eat. Generally, when the bread is on the top (unless you push it down like another review suggested) the bread gets too crunch to eat, especially for young kids. The peach version is fantastic (and easier than peeling apples). I don't think I'll go back to apples since this is so yummy!
P.S. "ditto" on the "too sweet syrup" as mentioned in another review. I'm trying the brown sugar not packed and the fruit on the top; maybe that will help.
