Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F In a small bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, cardamom, and salt. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla, beating until smooth.
  3. Fold dry ingredients and sour cream alternately into the creamed mixture until just combined. Don't over mix! The batter should be a little thick and lumpy. Fold in apple and walnuts and spread into a greased and floured 9x5x3-inch loaf pan and smooth out the top.
  4. Bake for 1 hour at 350°F or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cool upright in the pan for 10 minutes, then turn out on a wire rack and cool. Wrap tightly in foil and store at room temperature overnight.
  5. Serve either plain or with cream cheese. Enjoy!
