With an over abundance of apples from our orchard I was looking for a different apple bread and oh my this fit the bill. Not only so pretty to look at with that shiny praline topping. But the taste is perfect. I followed the recipe and wouldn't change a thing. I was worried at first as the dough felt so dry, but remembering that the apples would be adding moisture when cooking I left it as it was. The end result is moist, and delicious. This will be my go to recipe from now on

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F; grease a 9x5x3-inch loaf pan.
  2. Using an electric mixer on low speed, beat together the granulated sugar, sour cream, eggs, and vanilla until combined; raise speed to medium and beat for 2 minutes.
  3. In a separate bowl, stir together the flour, nutmeg, baking powder, soda, and salt; gradually add to sugar/sour cream mixture on low speed until combined.
  4. By hand, stir in the chopped apple and 1/2 cup of the pecans.
  5. Turn batter into the greased loaf pan; sprinkle with the remaining chopped pecans and press nuts lightly into the batter.
  6. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 55 to 60 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted in center comes out clean; if bread is turning too brown, cover top of the bread loosely with foil for the last 10 minutes.
  7. Let cool in the pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes.
  8. While bread is cooling, in a small saucepan over medium-high heat combine the butter and brown sugar and cook, stirring, until mixture comes to a boil.
  9. Reduce heat and simmer gently for 1 minute to make caramel topping.
  10. Remove bread from pan; drizzle top with the caramel and let cool.
  11. Serve and enjoy!
