Apple Nut Bread

apple nut bread

This recipe for homemade apple nut bread is made with apples, sour cream, sugar, eggs, cinnamon, and chopped pecans.

Fill the house with the wonderful aroma of this fresh apple nut bread baking in the oven. Everyone in your household will be waiting for it to come out of the oven and cool down enough to eat.

Finely chopped pecans add a delicate nutty flavor to this quick bread. I personally like pecans better than walnuts, but you can use whatever you have around in the house. Just be sure your nuts are fresh.

Serve this either warm or cold for breakfast, lunch, a snack, or as part of a weekend brunch menu. If you are serving this warm, a bit of softened butter is all you need. If being served cold, try this cream cheese spread for a great taste combination.
