How to Make Nini Rice's Apple Bread


  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.
  6. 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.
