Christmas Apple and Cinnamon Loaf Review by Tha Queen on September 19th, 2011:

I didn't add raisins or nuts to my recipe but to keep the crunchy texture I added an oatmeal crumble to the top and I used more apple. The batter was very thick which made it difficult to add the apple and I had to bake it at least 1/2 and hour longer then the given time before it was done (so definitely do a toothpick check). The taste was good but not spectacular. I will probably make it again with the crumble top but I will try a bit more milk (maybe even sour milk which goes great with cakes and muffins), I'll add a bit of nutmeg (which I find enhances cinnamon wonderfully) and I will probably shred the apple instead and maybe even add a bit more.

I made it as a round cake, adding some nutmeg and powdered ginger to the cinnamon, and I mixed the nuts into the batter. The result was very impressive and the house smelled wonderful after I baked it!
