Apple Cinnamon Nut Bread

Well, while I might have been distracted, surely you didn't thing I would forget we are in prime apple season, now did you? I have apple trees. Apples thunk down in my yard. Wild animals eat them. Two legged wild animals (mine and from next door) throw them at each other. Darn good thing I like apples, now isn't it?

I decided to make apple bread because the apples were in my fridge, staring up at me, as if they wanted to be shredded. A food processor is a great shredding device, and I need all the help I can get. Now, don't drool on your monitor, because this is moist and luscious. And it contains plenty of cinnamon, which Grace will tell you is one of the most important elements in food.

APPLE CINNAMON NUT BREAD

3 cups flour

1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup sugar
3 eggs
1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 tsp cinnamon
2 cups shredded apples
1 cup chopped walnuts


Sift together the flour, powder, soda and salt; set aside. Beat together the eggs, sour cream and sugar. Add the flour mix and oil, then the vanilla and cinnamon. Stir in the walnuts and apples; pour into two greased and lightly floured 8x4 loaf pans. Bake for 55 to 65 minutes. Makes 2 loaves.
This was all that was left last night (Tuesday) of the two loaves I made Monday afternoon. So, I guess you could infer that my dearly beloved thought it was well worth my effort.

I'll probably be making more early next week and shipping it out to some of my college kids, along with Halloween candy. I know they're all starving, because they call and tell me so!

I absolutely love sweet breads like this. I prefer this to cake! When I first looked at the photo (which is great, by the way), I thought it had a glaze on it. Closer inspection revealed how moist it is and that's what I was seeing. I like how you shredded the apples ... I don't like biting into a big chunk, so shredding is my preference big time. The inclusion of sour cream reminds me of a sweet bread called friendship bread. I sure could go for a slice of this right now!
