A Tasty for my readers today – Walnut and Apple Bread!
If you like apples, you have come to the right place.
If you like nuts, you have definitely come to the right place.
If you like cinnamon, you are in the right place!
Meet my new favorite sweet bread recipe.
Heaven on a darn plate!
Moist, sweet and stuffed with apples, this bread is uber easy to make. No mixer required and it can be done and dusted in under an hour.
What’s even better is that once you get a whiff of the baking bread, you will probably start to imagine that you are in your favorite coffee shop.
I now use the same recipe for all of my sweet bread; all adapted from my quick and easy banana bread. Instead of using bananas in the bread, I used natural (plain) yogurt.
Yogurt, sour cream and buttermilk are all key ingredients if you plan to make a seriously moist and rice bake. Sour cream can also be substituted with thick Greek yogurt as both have the same dairy richness.
Also, as well as using yogurt, I threw in an extra egg for two reasons. One to give the bread more structure to be able to hold up the apple pieces and walnuts and two for extra richness yet lightness as well.
Eggs, they won’t let you down! ;D
This bread is truly packed with apples, every bite is filled with tender apple pieces. I recommend you use a cross between a cooking apple and an eating apple, like a Granny Smith or Cox’s. If you use an eating apple, I find the apple “dissolves” into the batter while the bread bakes, leaving behind a grainy texture in place.
The walnuts provide a great texture contrast against the soft apple and spongy bread. It is like finding a little nugget of gold nestled in the cinnamon spiced bread. I love the woody and earthy taste that walnuts have but you could easily swap the walnuts for a nut of your choice.
(May I suggest pecans?)
Each bite is full of cinnamon, apple, and walnuts. So comforting yet so easy to make!
