It's a simple and moist breakfast or afternoon tea loaf, a cakey bread that takes minimum time to prepare.

Peel and clean and dice one large Granny Smith apple and add 20g of sugar and a tsp of cinnamon sugar, half tsp of vanilla to coat and set a side.
Add rhubarb compote to apple and mix well once it's cooled a little.

For the loaf:

100g butter, room temperature
80g sugar
300g SR flour
100ml Milk
100g sour cream
2 eggs
1/2 tsp bi-carb soda

Cream butter and sugar till light and fluffy, beat in eggs, one by one. add milk and sour cream, beat till smooth, sift in flour and bi-carb soda, fold in apple chunks and and rhubarb compote.

Sprinkle the top of the loaf with extra cinnamon sugar.
