Just stop what you’re doing and make this right now. I am serious. My T.T.T. sister Jeane made this for a meeting one Saturday morning and it is the very best quick bread I have ever had. I’ve made it lots of times and the response is always the same. Make it. Now. You won’t regret it.
1 1/2 cups chopped pecans, divided
8 oz. sour cream
1 cup sugar
1 Tbsp Vanilla
2 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups copped apples
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
Take 1/2 cup pecans and bake them for 6 minutes at 350.
Mix the sour cream, sugar, eggs, and vanilla. In a separate bowl, mix the flour, baking powder, soda and salt. Gently blend the flour mix to the sour cream mix – just until blended. Do not overmix. Fold in the apples and toasted pecans.
Pour the batter into a greased loaf pan. Sprinkle remaining chopped pecans on top and bake the bread at 350 for one hour. Cool for 10 minutes, and turn out onto a serving platter.
In a saucepan, bring the butter and brown sugar to the boil and boil it for one minute stirring constantly. Pour over the bread. Let the bread cool and keep it covered.
It’s apple praline paradise.
