Apples are everywhere these days and I always enjoy using them in recipes like this caramel apple bread that is jam packed with chunks of apples and pockets of melted caramel! This is a quick bread so it’s super easy to make! You simply mix all of the dry ingredients into the mixture of the wet ingredients, pour the batter into a pan and bake; it’s done in less than an hour! Instead of using all regular flour, I like to replace half of it with whole wheat flour and the addition of old fashioned rolled oats adds an amazing texture and flavour to the bread that goes so well with the apples! For the wet ingredients I go with brown sugar for the hint of molasses flavour along with yogurt and apple sauce which helps keep the cake light and moist without so much oil. Of course the star of the show here is the large chunks of apple and the caramels, which melt right into the bread leaving pockets of melted caramel! Yum! This caramel apple bread is amazing all by itself, or slathered with melting butter and some extra caramel sauce certainly doesn’t hurt!
Make two loafs on the weekend for quick breakfasts during the week!

9×5 pan way too small for this mixture.

This was probably one of the most ‘unsatisfying’ recipes I have ever made. The taste was okay but I found the oats made the texture horrible. You know how to make a grown man cry …. have him waste a bag of Kraft caramels. I am sure there are better uses of good caramels other than trying to make the whole wheat flour and oats taste good. Not a great combo of ingredients here, I give this one a FAIL.
What kind of a texture did the oats give your bread that you did not enjoy?

I made this bread but I changed a few things. One comment disliked the texture because of the oatmeal, so I omitted the oatmeal, only sprinkling some on the top like the photo. I used 3 cups of apples, dicing them into smaller pieces. I added one cup of roasted pecan pieces to the batter. I also cut the caramel into quarter size pieces. The bread did fit into my 9X5 loaf pan. We made french toast with this bread and ate it with a small amount of butter and powdered sugar. This bread is good. I may try chocolate chips instead of caramel next time.
