How To Make caramel apple bread

  • 1
    Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • 2
    Cube apple, measuring about 2 cups, toss with 2-3 T. of pudding mix. Set aside.
  • 3
    In large bowl, whisk together the pudding mixes and the buttermilk. Add the butterscotch extract. This will be very thick.
  • 4
    In a separate bowl, whisk together the brown sugar, spices, baking powder, baking soda, salt and flour.
  • 5
    Add dry ingredients to pudding mixture a little at a time, alternating with apple juice and blend well after each addition.
  • 6
    Fold in the apples.
  • 7
    Bake in a greased bundt pan or small loaf pans. Time for large bundt pan will be 45-50 minutes. The small loaves will take only 20. Test with toothpick to make sure the bread is done.
  • 8
    Remove from oven and let stand 10 minutes. Remove from pan.
  • 9
    Cool completely. When cool, drizzle caramel syrup on the top. You should get 12 mini-loaves or 12 slices from bundt.
