When you know you will be having company for breakfast or in the morning, you need to have this apple praline bread recipe on hand. There is nothing like serving up some tasty bread for breakfast, and maybe even getting a few compliments to start the day off right. 😉
As far as bread goes, this is not like your traditional sandwich loaf bread. Our apple bread is considered a sweet quick bread recipe (I’d even say the best quick bread recipe). So, there is no need to wait for the dough to rise over hours.
Making this a perfect recipe to make up when you are low on time, but want to have something absolutely delicious to serve. It is great for breakfast (yes this happens often haha), as a snack in the afternoon, to serve as dessert. It’s pretty much an all day tasty treat.
If you want to stockpile more of the best quick bread recipes to have on hand, make sure to save our cinnamon and sugar quick bread recipe, lemon blueberry quick bread, and you definitely can’t go wrong with our butterscotch banana bread recipe. You can even turn any of them into little bread muffins and enjoy them that way too!
Ingredients needed to make Apple Praline Bread:
- Sour cream
- Brown sugar
- Vanilla extract
- Baking powder
- Baking soda
- Apples, peeled and finely chopped
- Chopped pecans
How To Make Our Apple Praline Bread Recipe:
When you are ready to make this apple praline bread recipe, start by preheating the oven to 350 degrees.
Then get out your 9×5 inch loaf pan and grease it with crisco and then lightly flour it and then set it aside for later.
Now, in a large mixing bowl, combine the sour cream, brown sugar, eggs, and vanilla extract by beating it all together with a hand mixer on low for about 2 minutes or until it is all well blended.
Then, add in the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg to the mixing bowl.
Next, continue to mix it all together until the dry ingredients are completely combined into the wet ingredients.
Once all of the wet and dry ingredients are combined together to create the apple bread dough mixture, gently pour in the chopped apples and ½ cup of the chopped pecans and fold them into the bread mixture.
Now, pour the bread batter into the prepared loaf pan and then sprinkle the remaining chopped pecans on top of the raw batter and then slightly press them into the batter to make sure they stick after baking the bread.
After the pecans have been added to the top, place the pan in the hot oven for 55 minutes, or until a toothpick can be inserted into the center of the bread and comes out clean.
If you see that your bread is browning faster than you’d like, you can also remove the loaf pan from the oven and then loosely place a tented piece of foil over top and then place it back into the oven until the bread is cooked all the way through.
When the bread is done cooking, remove it from the oven and let the bread cool in the pan for about 15 minutes and then carefully turn it out onto a wire rack and then flip it up to continue cooling down with the bottom touching the rack.
While the bread is cooling down, get out a small saucepan and make up the praline topping.
Add the brown sugar and butter to the saucepan and melt it all together.
Bring the butter and sugar to a boil over medium heat, making sure to stir it constantly.
After the praline mix reaches a boil, turn the head down to low and let it simmer for another minute while still continuing to stir the sauce while it continues to thicken up.
Once the sauce is thick, think of a caramel-like consistency, then remove the pan from the heat and then drizzle the sauce over the bread.
Now simply let everything cool down, slice the bread, and enjoy your delicious dessert bread.

What is the Difference Between Quick Bread and Yeast Bread?
There is actually quite a bit of difference between quick bread and yeast bread. The ingredients are a lot different, and the method in making the bread is different.
Even though they are both a type of bread, they each have their own unique way of being made. The quick bread is put together quickly (aka how it got its name), however will tend to bake for longer. While a yeast bread takes a while to develop the bread dough itself, the baking time is actually significantly shorter.
This is just one major difference. If you want to know more, the website They Differ goes over all of the differences between quick bread and yeast breads in more detail!
