    I love this recipe, it's my new favorite. :) I used light ***** cheese, pecans and added some of my homemade vanilla. I baked as directed and it's a perfect shaped loaf and delicious too

    Can this recipe be made with apples? How many would you recommend or if using canned apples how many are recommended? I would use the long Wilton Loaf Pan for this large bread. This pan is wonderful for large loaf recipes. Add cinnamon and vanilla to this recipe. Maybe add a ***** cheese frosting as well.
