    Elly in Canada's Note:

    An adopted recipe originally posted by Mean Chef who noted "makes two 9 by 5 inch or 8 1/2 by 4 1/2 inch loaves". From the reviews on the recipe I would suggest you use a very fragrant tasty apple, I like Northern Spy.

    3. 3
      In a mixer, cream together the butter, oil and sugars.
    4. 4
      Add the eggs, vanilla and sour cream.

    7. 7
      Stir in the walnuts and apple.
    8. 8
      Divide batter between the prepared pans.
    9. 9
      Tap pans on the counter to remove any air bubbles.
    10. 10
      Bake for approximately 60 to 65 minutes, or until a toothpick poked in centers comes out clean.
    11. 11
      Rotate pans halfway through baking.
    12. 12
      After 45 minutes, place sheets of foil loosely over loaves to prevent overbrowning.

      (Ovens bake differently, so use your best judgment and a doneness test when gauging cooking time for baked goods.) Cool in pans for 10 minutes, then remove to a rack and turn right-side-up to cool completely.

      Thank you for this outstanding recipe. I made it as written and I'm really enjoying something different. After picking Stayman Winesap apples this weekend we've already made apple sauce and apple pie. I love cardamom but have never before seen it combined with apples. I look forward to making this again. This didn't affect my rating, but readers may want to know, these don't crown very high because they are very moist. Also, If making muffins, allow 25 minutes. (Check after 20).

      What a wonderful bread this is! I LOVE the cardamom flavour in this one. A really good recipe! I gave one away as a food gift for Iftaar today and it was really well received;-) Thank you for sharing this one!

      Delicious! This apple bread is moist and light. It has a delicate and subtle cardamom flavor. Initially when I looked at the ingredients I thought the cardamom would be overwhelmingly strong, but it was perfect. I served it for dessert this afternoon. I left the kichen and when I returned a few minutes later it was gone.... my kids totally devoured it. I'll definitely be making this again. Thanks for a great recipe Mean Chef.
