Moist and delicious. the praline glaze makes it a treat for those with a sweet tooth. Toasting the pecans gives them a flavorful crunch.
This bread is SO good and a nice change from banana bread during the fall/winter!!
Loved this, especially the topping. Took to work for treat day and it was a big hit.
I think if there were a little cinnamon in the bread it self it would tie the two together. The recipe was simple but the two didn't go together. The bread by it self with a little butter would be a great breakfast treat tosted but to bland to hold up under all that sweetness. Won't make again.
Became an instant best-loved recipe with the entire family; fabulous; easy to make!! One large Granny Smith did the trick!
