Recipe type: Brunch
Cuisine: American
Serves: 12
  • ½ cup butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 Tablespoons sour cream
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup chopped apples (about 2 medium apples)
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Grease and flour a 9" x 5" x 3" loaf baking pan.
  3. In a medium bowl, cream butter and sugar.
  4. Add eggs and vanilla, and sour cream and mix well.
  5. In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  6. Add flour mixture, a small amount at a time, to the wet mixture and stir until combined.
  7. Stir in chopped apples and nuts, if desired. Batter will be thick.
  8. Pour into a greased baking pan and bake for 50-60 minutes until done.
**To test for doneness, insert a toothpick into the center of the loaf 5 minutes before baking time is over. When a toothpick comes out clean, the bread is done.

You can also visually check if it is done by looking for a nice medium brown color and also checking that the bread has pulled away from the edges of the baking pan.
