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
  • 1 cup plus 3 tablespoons milk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup shortening, melted

Instructions

  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 50 to 60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  8. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then finish cooling on a rack.
