Cinnamon walnut bread

Ingredients:

1/4 cup butter, melted

1/2 cup chopped walnuts

1 tablespoon cinnamon

1 cup sugar, divided

2-1/2 cups all purpose flour

1 teaspoon salt

1-1/4 teaspoons baking soda

5 tablespoons apple cider vinegar

11 tablespoons milk

2 large eggs

1/4 cup shortening, melted

1 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

Directions: 

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F and generously grease a standard-size loaf pan (9¼" x 5¼" x 2¾").
  2. Combine the melted butter, walnuts, cinnamon and 1/2 cup of the sugar in a bowl. Mix well and set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together the remaining 1/2 cup of sugar, flour, salt and baking soda.
  4. Place the apple cider vinegar in a measuring cup and fill with the milk to the 1-cup mark (equivalent to 11 tablespoons).
  5. In a medium bowl, beat the eggs and whisk in the vinegar-milk mixture. Gradually add the melted shortening, then add the entire mixture to the dry ingredients. Combine well.
  6. Give the walnut-cinnamon mixture a stir, then fold it into the batter, swirling it through, but not combining completely.
  7. Spread the batter in the prepared loaf pan and bake for 45 to 55 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then finish cooling on a rack.
