Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup (8 ounces) sour cream
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1-1/2 cups chopped peeled Granny Smith apples
  • 1-1/4 cups chopped pecans, toasted, divided
  • 1/2 cup butter, cubed
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. In a large bowl, mix flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. In another bowl, beat sugar, sour cream, eggs and vanilla until well blended. Stir into flour mixture just until moistened. Fold in apples and 1 cup pecans.
  2. Transfer to a greased 9x5-in. loaf pan. Bake 50-55 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan 10 minutes. Remove to a wire rack to cool completely.
  3. In a small saucepan, combine butter and brown sugar. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly to dissolve sugar; boil 1 minute. Spoon over bread. Sprinkle with remaining pecans; let stand until set. Yield: 1 loaf (16 slices).
Editor's Note: To toast nuts, spread in a 15x10x1-in. baking pan. Bake at 350° for 5-10 minutes or until lightly browned, stirring occasionally. Or, spread in a dry nonstick skillet and heat over low heat until lightly browned, stirring occasionally.

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!

Tasty. I wish they would tell you how many apples instead of a cup measure - I'm sure it's more accurate, but I would like to know that my two apples would be enough before I started. (they were). Mine took longer than the recipe states, but I think my pan was the wrong size.
