I tried a new recipe last night that my family is still enjoying. It is sort of unique since the batter doesn’t contain oil. If you have some extra apples around and feel like baking something... here goes!

1 1/2 cups chopped pecans
8 oz sour cream
1 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 tablespoon vanilla
2 cups all purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups chopped finely and peeled Granny Smith apples
1 tsp cinnamon,
1/2 tsp nutmeg and cloves

Topping: 1/2 cup butter and 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Beat sour cream and next 3 ingredients t low speed until well blended. Stir together flour and next 3 ingredients. Add to sour cream mixture, beating until well blended. Stir in apples and 1/2 cup of pecans. Spoon batter into a greased and floured 9 x 5 loaf pan. Sprinkle the remaining 1 cup of chopped pecans on top and press the pecans lightly into the batter.

Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour to 1 hour and 5 minutes. Check if it is done with a skewer or long knife. You may want to shield the loaf with foil at around 50 minutes to keep the pecans from getting too dark. Cool in pan for 10 minutes and then to wire rack.

For the topping: Bring butter and brown sugar to boil in a 1 qt heavy saucepan over medium heat. Make sure you stir constantly and boil mixture for one minute. Spoon over the top of the bread and let cool completely.

*** Recipe did not call for cinnamon, nutmeg or cloves but I added them. The bread is not ultra sweet but very moist. Topping is good but my girls thought that caramel would be a better topping since it would add more sweetness.
