I have some reservations about posting this recipe, but I'm going to do it anyway. I was experimenting a bit and the outcome was not what I expected. But it was delicious anyway. I was hoping for more of a bread product, like my apple pecan bread. It ended up being a lot more moist and didn't really hold it's shape when sliced. It was also much sweeter than I anticipated. For that reason, I liken it to a coffee cake, as I think it would be really good with a strong cup of black coffee on a cold Sunday morning.
