It does exist! There are several locations across NOVA. Great Harvest Bread Company - Welcome

I love apple scrapple but my most favorite are the chocolate chip scones.

Ahhh! There was one just a mile from my old apartment, and I never knew!!!

Although apparently there's one in burke, and the menu tells me apple scrapple days are Tuesday/Thursday/Saturday. I know where I'm headed this week!

Thank you!

If you can handle a baking mix, I was in Trader Joe's today and I saw an apple bread mix on the shelves. Dice or slice some apples and mix in!

Just wanted to bump this post up because I tried the Wegman's apple spice bread. Just okay. In fact, I didn't really care for it. My coworker ate two pieces but thought it had an aftertaste. About three people noted an aftertaste. I did not and just didn't care for it.

Now I have to try Apple Scrapple. One of my Wegman's tasters has had that and said it was a little bit better than the Wegman's stuff but I don't think he was overly wowed by it.

I'm also going to make my grandma's Apple Cake. I guess that's probably what I really like. It is REALLY plain and made in a bundt pan but has lots of apples and gets better each day it sits because it gets wetter as the apples collapse.

That sounds delicious. Are you willing to share the recipe?

Of course, but I'm going to bake it myself tomorrow to make sure I've got the right recipe.

The last time I made it was about 20 years ago. My mom just sent me the recipe and it is VERY simple. My mom commented that "today's palate" might not like this very much because there are very few ingredients in it. She might be right!

So, I'm going to try to make it tomorrow to make sure we've found the right recipe and it turns out as I remember. If it's a success, I will post it.

I'll bet you can find a recipe for something that works for you in here:

Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day

If you like homemade bread, this book will change your life.

Thank you for the apple bread report. I will take this and other advice as I embark on my apple bread replacement strategy. All recommendations and recipes are appreciated!

Yes please let us know! And for what it's worth, the "cake" I'm going to make is not really a bread at all so I think I have a very different perspective on what I live versus what other people are looking for. Until I had the Wegman's stuff (and never tried Great Harvest yet), I guess I never had true apple "bread."
