Be My Guest – Apple Praline Bread

I am literally counting days. A month and we will be into Ramadan, and another one more month, we will have Eid and then I will be travelling home, InShaAllah… Yay… Can’t wait for the break. Life has been really topsy-turvy, with a lot of stress, whether it is at work or at home, so I am so much waiting for the break. I sincerely hope it would rain heavily and all I will need to do is to cozy up on the front sitout with a blanket with a cup of tea watching them, in my parent’s home! Hehe…

 

OK, leaving aside all that talks, let me bring along our guest for the month. Last month, I was a guest at her space and this month, she is on mine! Very coincidentally, I was seeing that the same thing happened with Remya, albeit upside down! Hehe… It just happens that either they ask me for one and I ask the same back, and vice versa… 馃檪 I have already mentioned when I was doing her guest post as to how much I love her bakes. She comes up with such tempting cakes and buns, sweet and savory, that my hands would literally itch to get into the kitchen and start whipping it up, but I have to hold on as I have promised myself that I would keep my cooking and baking to the minimum now! I guess you all would have guessed by now who my guest is – yes, of course, it is Gloria! I am sure all of you for sure are ardent visitors of her blog, “Pepper, Chilli and Vanilla” for the awesome bakes that she comes up with every now and then! And as expected, she came up with a bake today as well! And that too with apples – which is my second favorite fruit to bake with after bananas.

 

Without much time, let’s move on to the lipsmacking bread that she has come up with it… Yummm….

 

 

Greetings to you lovely readers聽of聽The聽Big聽Sweet聽Tooth聽. I am Gloria a self聽聽proclaimed foodie from聽Mumbai聽.I am passionate about cooking聽and baking.I love experimenting different cuisines and find baking very therapeutical. I

lots of traditional recipes from East Indian Catholic Cuisine ,recipes from聽different cuisines and many baked goodies.
The聽first thing that attracted me to Rafeeda’s space was the blog name itself..”The Big Sweet Tooth ‘. Right from the
first visit to her blog I was hooked on to it. I always look forward for the聽yummy biryanis and baked treats from her blog. I was really happy when she聽asked me for a guest post in her lovely blog. I wanted to give her something sweet
as the Sweet tooth was one thing common between both of us. Secondly I know she聽loves cakes and so thought of sharing with you all a delicious quick Apple Praline聽Bread.
This聽cake/bread taste absolutely divine .You’ll love every bite of this delicious聽cake. This cake uses sour cream which makes it moist soft and delish .The聽praline topping compliments the soft moist cake .I have added walnuts instead
of pecans聽 and also added some cinnamon聽powder in the cake as well as in the praline sauce I just love the combo of
cinnamon and apple.
