Apple Praline Bread/Cake Recipe..Guest Post for The Big Sweet Tooth

Hello friends hope you all are doing great ..I feel so good to post after such a long time.I was busy past 3 weeks taking care of my beloved Mother in law who was  very sick and was admitted for a week.Life was hell these days but I survived only because of God's grace and blessings.
I'm happy as i write this post today since My MIL is much better and getting back to normal and secondly because its a guest post for my dear friend Rafeeda who did a lovely post for me last month. 

The first thing that attracted me to Rafeeda's  blog 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 yummy biryanis  and baked treats from her blog. I was really happy when she 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 loves cakes and so thought of sharing with you all a delicious quick Apple Praline Bread.

This cake/bread taste absolutely divine .You'll love every bite of this delicious cake. This cake uses sour cream which makes it moist soft and delish .The praline topping compliments the soft moist cake .I have added walnuts instead of pecans  and also added some cinnamon powder in the cake as well as in the praline sauce I just love the combo of cinnamon and apple.For the recipe hop over to Rafeeda's space

easy apple cake recipe with sour cream homemade

To make your own sour cream just add 2tbsp vinegar/lime juice in a cup of double cream and let it sit for a minute.
I have used brown sugar instead of granulated sugar in the cake.
You can cover the cake with a loose aluminium foil to prevent it from excessive browning ,I did'nt do that.
Original Recipe calls for pecans I used walnuts instead.
