Apples, Apples and more Apples that is what my kitchen looks like.   I am in the apple cooking mode.  It's fall so why not!  The kitchen is smelling like apple and cinnamon heaven. Mr. Dick and I both enjoyed this bread, big pieces of apples, and raisins.  The bread is very moist. I wrapped it in foil and placed it in the cupboard then I thought about it all night.  But I stayed away.  I wanted it to rest and improve its flavor with time. Then we got into it, and its gone! Delicious, tender and moist...........Thank you Southern Pink Lemonade for a wonderful recipe...Happy Baking   Andi  

See those apple pieces...
