1 cup granulated sugar
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup canola oil
1/4 cup sour cream
1 cup peeled chopped apples
1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1. In a large mixer bowl, beat the eggs and sugar until light and fluffy. In a separate medium bowl, combine the flour, baking soda and salt; blend well.
2. Add the dry ingredients to the egg mixture, alternately with the oil and sour cream. Beat well after each addition; batter will be stiff.
3. Stir in the chopped apples, pecans and vanilla extract. Spoon the batter into a greased and floured 9-1/4 x 5-1/4 x 2-3/4-inch loaf pan.
4. Bake at 350 degrees F for 1 hour or until a wooden toothpick inserted in the middle of loaf comes out clean. Allow to cool in the pan 5 minutes; turn out onto wire rack to cool completely. Makes 1 loaf.
