  1. The whole gram to cup conversion , makes me hesitate baking any of these recipes. One miscalculation and poof, no apple bread.

  2. http://mybestgermanrecipes.com/conversion-charts/

    Conversions to cups is not happening. As you said one miscalculation – no result. It is better to get a scale. This is what I do. I never use cups ever.

  3. Mine also was a flop. What a disappointed after buying those somewhat expensive ingredients, and grating those apples the “old fashioned” way. I ended up slicing the bread, laying the slices on a cookie sheet and putting it back in the oven. Hope this salvages it so we can eat it. :-(

  4. I made the bread and it was great. If if was not baked fully then it was not long enough in the oven.
