Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup butter, softened
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup reduced-fat sour cream
  • TOPPING:
  • 1/3 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 medium tart apples, peeled and thinly sliced

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, beat butter and sugar until crumbly, about 2 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla. Combine flour and baking soda; add to creamed mixture alternately with sour cream, beating well after each addition (batter will be sticky).
  2. In a small bowl, combine the walnuts, sugars and cinnamon. Spread half of the batter into an 11x7-in. baking dish coated with cooking spray. Top with apples; sprinkle with half of the topping. Gently top with remaining batter and topping.
  3. Bake at 350° for 40-45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack.
