Apple Sour Cream Loaf




Another snowy day means another day of baking something yummy. Yes, spring will arrive, eventually and I will be out planting flowers instead of stuck inside, but until then, I love to bake when the cold weather strikes. Today's recipe was a new quick bread that I made in a different way. I usually make one regular sized loaf, but wanted to try the small loaf pans I found in my cupboard, while looking for another item. I discovered that one full size bread recipe makes three perfect, little loafs; one to enjoy now and two to freeze for later.

I wasn't about to go to the grocery store in the sloppy weather, if I didn't have to, so I found a recipe that used the ingredients I had on hand. There is always a bowl of apples sitting on my kitchen counter and I knew the addition of the sour cream would make this bread special. It was the perfect accompaniment to the cup of tea I enjoyed after what I hope will be my last time shoveling snow this season. Hurry spring!


Apple Sour Cream Loaf

1 stick butter, softened slightly

1 1/4 cups sugar ( I used stevia equivalent)

1/2 cup sour cream

3 eggs

1 tsp vanilla

2 small granny smith apples, peeled and chopped (1 cup)

1/4 tsp baking soda

1 1/2 cups flour

1 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp salt

Spray one regular size or three small loaf pans with butter flavored cooking spray. In a large bowl beat butter and sugar with a hand mixer until fluffy. Beat in sour cream, then beat in eggs, one at a time. And vanilla to egg mixture and finally stir in chopped apples. In another bowl, whisk together dry ingredients. Fold this mixture into the wet ingredients and stir until just combined. Pour batter into prepared pan(s) and bake at 350 degrees for 55 minutes or until top springs back when touched. Cool in pan for 15 minutes, then remove to wire rack.
