"With its caramel topping, this bread is great for snacking," Valerie Long writes from Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. "Low in fat but big on flavor, it's a winner that never lasts long in our house."

Ingredients

  • 1 cup fat-free plain yogurt
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1-1/2 cups chopped peeled tart apples
  • 3/4 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon fat-free milk

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, beat the yogurt, sugar, eggs and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; add to yogurt mixture and beat until just combined. Fold in apples and pecans.
  2. Pour into a 9x5-in. loaf pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 45-55 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack.
  3. In a small saucepan, bring the brown sugar, butter and milk to a boil, stirring constantly. Cover and cook for 1 minute. Cool slightly. Spread over cooled bread. Let stand for 15 minutes.
