Apple Walnut Bread

Fruit breads have always been my favorite. Apple and walnut combo is something that I wanted to try since many months. Finally had a chance to bake yesterday; turned out yummy and flavorful.





Adapted from here.

Ingredients:

All Purpose Flour 1 cup
Wheat Flour 1 cup
Cinnamon Powder 1 tsp
Vanilla Powder 1 tsp
Baking Powder 2 tsp
Baking Soda 1 tsp
Salt 1/2 tsp

Eggs 2
Butter 110g
Yogurt 2/3 cup
Honey 1/2 cup
Dark Brown Sugar 1/2 cup

Chopped Apples 1/2 cup
Grated Apples 1 cup
Chopped Walnuts 3/4 cup

Method:

Chop Apples and Walnuts. Grate Apples.

Combine the dry ingredients All Purpose Flour, Wheat Flour, Baking Soda, Baking Powder, Vanilla Powder, Cinnamon  Powder and Salt. Mix well and keep it aside. 

\

Preheat the oven for ten minutes.

In a bowl, combine melted butter, eggs, Yogurt, Honey and Dark brown Sugar. Mix until everything gets combined well. Slowly add the dry ingredients mixture. Combine well till done.




                                                 

Now add the grated apples, chopped walnuts and apples. Mix well until everything is combined well.

                                                     

Butter the baking sheet in a loaf pan. Pour in the mixture. Sprinkle few chopped apples and walnuts.

Bake at 180 deg C for 45-50 minutes or until a tooth prick inserted comes out clean. Mine got done at 45 minutes.




Notes: I used a mixer to mix in all ingredients. But can be done in a large bowl with a hand whisk too.. Honey can be replaced with golden or maple syrup. I think with these syrups, it would be much more yumm.

This goes to Love 2 Bake happening at spicy treats and also to Dish it out - Breads from scratch happening at The Big Sweet Tooth.
