Praline-Glazed Apple Bread
A moist, sweet bread filled with chunks of apples and pecans, topped with a thick, rich praline glaze and more pecans.
Servings 14 servings
- 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.
