Delicious!, Member kellyb107

I found the recipe on line hoping to use up some apples I picked in the fall. I served it at a party and everyone loved it. I substituted the flour with half whole wheat flour and the other half with white flour. I made one loaf and the other batter I put into a 24 small muffin tin. The mini muffins were a great hit at the party. Incredibly moist! I also kept my apples chunky and added no nuts. The muffins took far less time to cook and I had to watch them carefully. The loaf was great too, but when I make my next batch I might make all the mini muffins from the batter. Easier to eat and quicker to bake.
