Apple Pecan Bread with Pecan Praline Glaze I love-love-love fall baking!  Apples, Pumpkin, Cinamon, Nutmeg, Ginger, Cloves.  As the song goes, “These are a few of my fav-O-rite things!!!!  This Apple Bread with Pecan Praline Glaze is a wonderfully delicious example of some of the best flavors fall has to offer.  It’s loaded with apples and pecans, its wonderfully moist and it’s easy peasy to put together.  The glaze is amazing.  Really. Really. Amazing. No exaggeration. Frankly, I could honestly eat the whole pan of glaze with a spoon and be extremely happy.  I might go into a diabetic coma, but it would be a delicious coma!

I really like that this recipe makes 2 loaves.  My family devours these little beauties generally the same day I make them.  If you have a more normal family, this recipe is great because you can enjoy one loaf after its freshly baked and freeze the other.  The bread freezes beautifully.  I prefer to freeze them without the glaze though.  Oh and by the way, your house will smell like Heaven when these are baking!

Apple Pecan Bread with Pecan Praline Glaze

Recipe notes: This recipe produces an extremely thick batter.  I’ve always mixed this recipe by hand with a long handle wooden spoon but it would be an ideal recipe to use a hand held electric mixer.  Just don’t over mix it after you add the wet ingredients to the dry.  I’d even use it to add the apples and walnuts.

I do use an electric hand held mixer always when I add the powder sugar to the glaze.  I never seem to be able to get it smooth and all the lumps out otherwise.
