Wow, this simple praline apple bread is amazing. It's a little different from most quick bread recipes we've made and does not depend on spices to provide flavor. Also, there's no oil - sour cream makes this bread nice and tender. The bread itself is not overly sweet and there's a lovely bit of apple in every bite. What makes this special is the praline topping. Slightly crunchy and so good, it adds so much flavor to the bread. Perfect for a light dessert, breakfast or even an afternoon snack.

How to Make Praline Apple Bread

Step-by-Step

  1. Mix sour cream, sugar, eggs, and vanilla with an electric mixer on low speed until well blended.
  2. Stop the mixer and add the dry ingredients. Mix on low until well blended.
  3. Fold in the apples and 1/2 of the nuts. The batter will be very thick.
  4. Pour into a prepared loaf pan. Sprinkle the remaining 1/2 cup of the nuts over the batter and press with your hands into the batter, don't press very deep.
  5. Bake at 350 for 60 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow the bread to cool in the pan for 20 to 30 minutes before removing.
  6. PRALINE SAUCE: Combine the butter and sugar in a pot and bring to a boil over medium heat. Once it comes to a boil, then simmer until it thickens like a sauce.
  7. Drizzle over the cooled bread. Enjoy!
