Apple Walnut Bread with Caramel Sauce

Home / Recipes / Sweets / Apple Walnut Bread with Caramel Sauce

This apple walnut bread recipe is moist, flavorful and uses yogurt instead of butter or oil, what could be better than that?  Because this is a “quick bread”, it goes together in just a few minutes, so preparing the apples is the  only part that could be considered work.  To make it just a little more special, I drizzled salted caramel sauce over the top a few minutes after I pulled it from the oven.  Yes, I almost always have a jar of caramel sauce in the fridge, and so should you!

Apple Walnut Bread

You will need about 2 cups of chopped apples, it is your choice on whether or not to peel them.  I prefer to peel the apples, but it would be just as lovely with the skins on.  Chop the apples into small pieces, but not tiny, chunks of apple in the bread are wonderful.

This recipe makes 1 large loaf, but you could easily divide the batter into a few smaller loaf pans.  Prepare the pans by greasing them either with butter or an oil spray.

The caramel sauce drizzle is entirely optional, but it does make your friends say, “Oh, jeez, this topping is awesome!”  So, it’s up to you.


I bet this apple walnut bread would make amazing muffins, don’t you think so?
