TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. Bake: 50 min. + cooling YIELD:16 servings


  • 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 large 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


  • 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, bake in a shallow pan in a 350° oven for 5-10 minutes or cook in a skillet over low heat until lightly browned, stirring occasionally.

"Moist and delicious. the praline glaze makes it a treat for those with a sweet tooth. Toasting the pecans gives them a flavorful crunch."

"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."

"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."
