"Almost a pound cake. We like it sliced, spread with butter, then microwaved just until warm."

  1. Butter a 9x5x3-inch pan. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Cream butter, add sugar slowly, and continue to beat until light and lemon-colored. Beat in eggs.
  3. Sift flour with salt, baking soda, and baking powder. Add to the butter mixture alternately with the buttermilk, beginning and ending with the dry ingredients. Stir in the apples, nuts, and vanilla. Spoon batter into prepared pan.
  4. Bake in a preheated 350 degree F (175 degrees C) oven for 50-60 minutes, until the loaf pulls away slightly from the sides of the pan or until a cake tester comes out clean. Cool in the pan for about 5 minutes, then loosen from pan and turn onto a rack to cool completely before slicing.

Great recipe - it's actually more of an apple bread. I used 1/2 c. white sugar and 1/2 c. of brown sugar. I also upped the buttermilk to 1/4 c. and added 1 tsp. of cinnamon to the batter. I used three apples: one shredded and two chopped. I did two of these. One I made a topping for: 1/4 c. brown sugar, 1/4 c. flour, 2 tsp. of cinnamon, and 1/4 c. of butter. Combine the sugar, flour, and cinnamon in a bowl then cut the butter in until it resembles course crumbs. Halfway through baking sprinkle over top so it doesn't sink into the cake. The other one I did a caramel sauce: 1/4 c. brown sugar, 1/4 c. butter, 1/8 c. of cream (or half and half) bring to a boil and boil for 3 minutes, remove from heat and add 1/4 tsp. of vanilla. Let cool slightly before pouring over warm cake. Either way they're delicious!!!!

This was AWESOME. My husband ate the entire thing! I used three apples, upped the milk a little, and added some cinnamon to the batter. (Thanks, Jillian!) Excellent recipe! This cooked for much longer than I expected, though (probably an extra 15 min), but that's probably because of the extra apples. Oh, also, I baked this in an 8x8 glass dish. I didn't think it would fit in a loaf pan! Delicious, though. Absolutely a keeper!


Made this with pears in a bundt pan - it was delicious! Very moist with all the fruit. Also chopped the walnuts up super fine in the food processor to make a nutty flavor throughout. This one's a keeper!
