  • 1 cup 0% plain yogurt or sour cream
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup granulated sugar 200g
  • 2 cups flour (I used 50% whole wheat) 250g
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped apples you can peel them if you want -- I never bother
  • 1 1/2 cups toasted pecans chopped, divided
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar


  • Grease a 9x5" loaf pan and preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • In a large bowl combine the yogurt, eggs, vanilla and sugar. Whisk until well combined.
  • Add in flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt and stir until just combined.
  • Stir in apples and 1 cup pecans.
  • Spread into prepared pan and bake for 50-55 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes before removing from pan.
  • In a small pot, combine butter and brown sugar. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat and boil about 2 minutes. The mixture will begin to take on an almost frothy appearance.
  • Spoon glaze over bread and top with remaining pecans.
