Apple Walnut Quick Bread Recipe

This recipe is so simple you’ll have it memorized after making it a time or two.  It makes the house smell incredible, and it is simply delicious.  Once fall rolls around, and I start baking, this is the one baked good my husband consistently requests.  Enjoy.

Start by dicing up a small apple.  I used a Honeycrisp this time because it was what was in the house.
