With an over abundance of apples from our orchard I was looking for a different apple bread and oh my this fit the bill. Not only so pretty to look at with that shiny praline topping. But the taste is perfect. I followed the recipe and wouldn't change a thing. I was worried at first as the dough felt so dry, but remembering that the apples would be adding moisture when cooking I left it as it was. The end result is moist, and delicious. This will be my go to recipe from now on

I'm sorry I thought I rated this a 5 a long time ago!! This is so good, I make it all the time, because it's SSSOOOO GOOD!! I make it as gifts all the time, and I'm ALWAYS asked for the recipe. I've made it into mini loaves for bake sales, and they are big money makers!! My friends family has never tried it, because she always eats it all before they are back from work and school!! lol DH likes it because it's not too sweet for him but it's still sweet enough for me! 100% a keeper!

Delicious! It was not overpoweringly sweet, the slightest hint of salty - just amazing. I will be making this again!!!! Unfortunately, I didn't have sour cream so I used cottage cheese, so technically I am not rating the recipe as written. *I am tired of peeling apples this fall, so I left the skins on and put them in the microwave on low for 4 minutes to soften the skin before baking. Skins were indistinguishable in the finally product - and a heck of a lot easier.

All the qualities I like in a recipe--easy, attractive and tasty. The bread is moist, not too sweet and the topping enhances each bite. Thanks Julesong!

I loved this bread! It had a nice texture and was very moist. I added 1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon and left the nutmeg in as well. I also left the peels on the apples, which I usually do in baking. It adds a little extra color. I made 6 loaves of this bread and gave them as gifts (except for the one that I ate). Thanks for the great recipe. I will be making it again.

Excellent! This bread has great texture and flavor and looks incredible. The caramel topping really makes it. I used light sour cream, 1/2 tsp. cinnamon instead of the nutmeg and a little extra apples and it turned out perfect. My whole family loved it so I'm sure I will make it again. Thanks for posting!

FABULOUS!I didn't bake it with pecans, but rather sprinkled some on top and then drizzled w/the caramelized topping. Amazing. Thanks!

Made these this week-end and they came out pretty good, but for my taste I think they need a little more spice. When I make again, I think I'll add some cinnamon.

Over the Christmas season, I made like 5 batches of this and gave it out as gifts. Fabulous!! I am hooked! Flavor, texture, and presentation rock! I did have a little trouble a couple times with the caramel sauce, but next time I will try the microwave suggestion:) Thanks!
