Apple Quick-Bread

A honey infused apple quick-bread with a sour cream base, I set out to bake a simple apple quick-bread that was slightly more savory then an apple cake (I’m thinking breakfast) and not heavily spiced.  One of my latest food revelations is that heavily spiced apple cakes/breads muffle the bright, saccharinely tart flavors of a freshly harvested apple, and why would you want to do that?



  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) melted Butter
  • 1/4 cup Canola Oil
  • 3 tbsp Honey
  • 3/4 cup Sugar
  • 1/2 cup Sour Cream
  • 1 tbsp Vanilla Extract
  • 2 Eggs
  • 2 cups Flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 5 diced Apples (peeled, cored, and diced)


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F (~177 C).
  2. Sift together the flour, baking powder, and salt.
  3. In a separate bowl, beat until frothy the butter, oil, honey, and sugar.
  4. Beat in the eggs, sour cream, and vanilla.
  5. Gradually beat in the dry ingredients.
  6. Stir in the apples.
  7. Pour the batter into a greased loaf pan.
  8. Bake for 50-60 minutes.
