Apple Caramel Spice Bread

Have a craving for something gooey?  Here it is Apple Caramel Spice Bread.  I had one slice to sample  and my husband ate the entire loaf of bread.  Nice to know when you find something they really like.

Apple Caramel Spice Bread
adapted from Zucchini Spice Bread -

1 cup packed light brown sugar
2 tablespoons sugar
2/3 cup canola oil
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 large eggs
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 granny smith apples, grated
12 Kraft Caramels
Cinnamon Sugar

Cut the Kraft Caramel squares into 4ths and sprinkle with flour to coat and set aside.  In a large bowl whisk together brown sugar, sugar, oil, vanilla and eggs, set aside.

In a small bowl mix together flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, cloves and salt.  Add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients blend well.  Fold in grated apples and caramels.

Grease a loaf pan and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.  Pour batter into loaf pan and sprinkle the top with more cinnamon sugar.  Bake in a pre-heated 350 degree oven for 45 to 55 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.  Cool 10 minutes before removing from loaf pan then cool completely before slicing.

Note:  I am at 7200 feet baking at high altitude I adjusted the baking soda and baking powder to 1/4 teaspoon on each of these.  Also after 45 minutes baking I increased by 5 minutes each time checking it with a toothpick.  Happy to announce this is the first bread that did not sink.

Until Next Time,


  1. That looks delicious! I wouldn't be able to stop at just one slice :)

  2. That looks incredible! I can't wait to get to Denver and get experimenting again!
