I hope you're having a great week so far! 

I'm loving the gorgeous fall weather we're having right now.

My favorite thing to do lately is sit on the porch with a mug of tea, read a book and enjoy the cool breeze! Fall is by far my favorite season and I try to enjoy every minute outside that I can.

Today's recipe is a delicious apple quick bread!

With the abundance of apples everywhere right now, it's the perfect time to make this bread.

We have plans to visit the apple orchard later this month, and I'm sure this bread will be made many more times before apple season is over.

The chunks of apple throughout the bread are wonderful, and the caramel glaze on top gives the bread an extra sweetness!

I slice the bread after it cools, and wrap each piece individually in aluminum foil so it's easy to take on the go, or pack in a lunchbox.

This unique recipe is sure to be a new family favorite!

What is in Caramel Apple Almond Quick Bread?

  • Brown sugar: Often produced by adding sugarcane molasses to refined white sugar crystals. There are two varieties, light brown sugar and dark brown sugar. Dark brown sugar has more molasses, which results in a darker color, richer flavor and more moisture. Try making your own brown sugar here!
  • Baking powder: It's a dry leavening agent, with a shelf life about 9-12 months. Baking powder is used to increase the volume and lighten the texture of baked goods by causing bubbles in a wet mixture. Baking powder is usually made with a combination of baking soda, cream of tartar and cornstarch.
  • All purpose flour: It's a combination of hard and soft wheats. Bleached flour provides a softer texture. It's versatile and you can bake most anything with it!
  • Butter: A dairy product consisting of approximately 80% butterfat and made from the fat and protein components of milk or cream. Most commonly made from cow's milk, but can also be made from sheep, goat, yak, or buffalo milk.
