Easy Apple Bread

Instead of banana bread, make apple bread. Rustic and hearty. It's delicious served warm from the oven with butter. Or serve it alongside a cheeseboard as a tasty alternative to crackers. It also makes a brilliant base for cheese on toast.

1. Preheat your oven to 180°C/Fan 160°C/Gas 4. Grease a loaf tin with butter, then dust the tin with a coating of plain flour – this will help stop the bread from sticking.
2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flours, salt and bicarbonate of soda. Core the apples, then coarsely grate them. Fold the grated apple into the flour with any chopped nuts or dried fruit. If you're using nuts, reserve a few to sprinkle over the top.
3. In a separate bowl, whisk together 50g melted butter, the honey, egg and apple juice. Pour into to the dry ingredients. Gently fold all the ingredients together, being careful not to overmix.
4. Scoop the mix into the tin. Scatter any reserved nuts over the top. Bake for 30 mins, or till a knife inserted in the centre comes out clean.
5. Let the bread cool in the tin for 10-15 mins before turning out and serving. Delicious served buttered, or with mature cheddar cheese.
