The weather is getting a little cooler, the apples are falling off the trees and it’s a perfect time to make this good Old-Fashioned Praline Apple Bread!!!
Years ago, our pastor’s wife shared this recipe with the congregation and it has been a family favorite ever since. This recipe for Old-Fashioned Praline Apple Bread is absolutely delicious all by itself or served with a cup of coffee, apple cider or hot chocolate.
Because apples are so yummy and good for us I like to use them in recipes whenever I can. Usually, I’ll leave the peels on for extra fiber; especially if I am using organic apples from my parent’s farm. Their apples are as organic as you can possibly get. No chemicals or pesticides. Totally nature made.
The original recipe calls for the use of a loaf pan, however, I used Wilton’s Brownie Bar Baking Pan instead. I kept seeing this neat square mini loaf pan in the store and I finally decided to buy it. Man am I glad I did! It does not stick, it browns evenly and is easy to clean. I have decided to use this versatile pan to make mini meatloaf’s, mini cakes, muffins, etc…
The muffins baked for 45 – 50 minutes and as the bread started to bake, the aroma that filled my home was heavenly.
I checked to see if the bread was finished baking by inserting a toothpick in the center. When it came out “clean,” and without any gooey batter, they were done baking.
It’s best to allow the bread to cool in the pan for 5 minutes before removing the muffins.
The next step is to make the yummy praline topping.
I also topped mine with additional chopped pecans.
Did I mention that this bread smelled so delicious while it was baking??? It made our whole house smell like fall. Mmm, Mmm! Don’t wait until fall to make this delicious Old Fashioned Praline Apple Bread. It’s fantastic any time of the year!
Happy apple season!
