A moist homemade apple bread recipe made with chopped apples, sugar, butter, and chopped walnuts. Serve for breakfast, brunch or dessert. A touch of sour cream and chunks of delicious fall apples makes this bread moist and delicious.
I will have to say that this certainly reminds me of fall and I personally like it warm with butter on top. Although it is great for breakfast or served at brunch, I think I just prefer it as a quick afternoon snack. It can also be served for a week night dessert.
This is made with chopped walnuts but you can also use chopped pecans for a nice flavor as well. Of course, you can leave out the nuts altogether if you prefer. Also try spreading this quick bread with butter or cream cheese spread for a quick snack.
