Emily's Apple Nut Bread I

Enjoy this wonderful bread with your morning coffee! ~ Emily

2 eggs
1 cup granulated sugar
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup canola oil
1/4 cup sour cream
1 cup peeled chopped apples
1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
In a large mixer bowl, beat the eggs and sugar until light and fluffy. In a separate medium bowl, combine the flour, baking soda and salt; blend well.
Add the dry ingredients to the egg mixture, alternately with the oil and sour cream. Beat well after each addition; batter will be stiff.
Stir in the chopped apples, pecans and vanilla extract. Spoon the batter into a greased and floured 9-1/4 x 5-1/4 x 2-3/4-inch loaf pan.

Bake at 350 degrees F for 1 hour or until a wooden toothpick inserted in the middle of loaf comes out clean. Allow to cool in the pan 5 minutes; turn out onto wire rack to cool completely. Makes 1 loaf.


Emily's Apple Nut Bread II

Because I was missing sour cream and nuts, and I have a lot of apples to use, I made the second batch with a few alterations. I also added cinnamon to this batch for Logan!

2 cups peeled, chopped apples
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1 cup granulated sugar
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 cup canola oil
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Combine peel chopped apples with brown sugar.

In a large mixer bowl, beat the eggs and sugar until light and fluffy. In a separate medium bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon; blend well.
Add the dry ingredients to the egg mixture, alternately with the oil. Beat well after each addition; batter will be stiff.
Stir in the chopped apples and vanilla extract. Spoon the batter into a greased and floured 9-1/4 x 5-1/4 x 2-3/4-inch loaf pan.

Bake at 350 degrees F for 1 hour or until a wooden toothpick inserted in the middle of loaf comes out clean. Allow to cool in the pan 5 minutes; turn out onto wire rack to cool completely.
Makes 1 loaf.

  2. Ooo, Emily's version sounds different! I'm going to have to try this. My apples have just gotten ready this past week, and I've got to get pickin' and cookin'! I've already put up some applesauce. I think I'll try freezing some apples this year to use for stuff like this.
