For the Bread:

  • ¾ cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 ½ cups granulated sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 tsp almond extract
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • ¾ tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp kosher salt
  • 1 ½ tsp cinnamon
  • 1 ½ cups sour cream
  • 1 ½ cups diced, peeled Crunch Pak apples
  • ¾ cup chopped pecans

For the glaze:

  • ¾ cup light brown sugar, packed
  • ¾ cup unsalted butter
  • ¾ cup chopped pecans


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray two loaf pans with baking spray and line the bottom with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl combine butter and sugar for the bread. Beat until combined. Add in eggs, almond extract and vanilla. Mix until combined.
  3. Add in flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon. Slowly add in sour cream. Batter will be thick.
  4. Fold in apples and pecans. Divide batter evenly between the two loaf pans.
  5. Bake for 60-65 minutes, until toothpick comes out clean. Cool in pans 10 minutes, then remove and cool on wire rack, completely, before adding the glaze.
  6. For the glaze, heat butter and brown sugar in small saucepan over medium high heat. Bring to a rolling boil, stirring continuously, and boil for 1 full minute.
  7. Spoon small amounts of the glaze over the bread and sprinkle with pecans. Repeat several times until all the glaze and nuts are used. Allow to set (about 30 minutes). Wrap up for freshness and store at room temperature. ENJOY!
