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…
