Cook:

45 Min

Method:

Bake

Ingredients

1 c
granulated sugar
1/2 c
butter, softened
2
eggs, lightly beaten
1 1/2 Tbsp
sour milk(i add a bit of plain or apple cider vinegar to sour the milk)
1 tsp
vanilla
2 c
all-purpose flour
1 tsp
baking powder
1/4 tsp
salt
1 c
raw apples (chopped into ½" pieces, not peeled) - i used both red and green.
1/2 c
chopped nuts (walnut are my preference)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Cream sugar and butter.
2
Add beaten eggs, sour milk, and vanilla.
3
Add dry ingredients and mix until just incorporated and smooth.
4
Add apples and nuts. Don't overmix!
5
Bake in a greased loaf pan at 350 degrees for about 40-45 minutes. I used 5 x 8.
Or if baking as 3 mini loaves 40 minutes, checking after 30.
*if you prefer a softer crust, about halfway through baking, loosely cover the bread with foil. I remember Nini's bread always tender and soft on top.

NOTES
*It's good practice to taste your apples before choosing which ones to use. Bland apples will result in bland bread! I like a mix of tart and sweet together.
