Caramel Apple Bread

This caramel apple bread is filled with fresh apples, cinnamon, and nutmeg, topped with a caramel glaze, and is incredibly delicious and easy to make!

Apple Caramel Bread is the perfect recipe for a quick sweet bread to make this time of year, made with your favorite type of apple. We like the Pink Lady apples in this recipe. This recipe is easy to make but takes a little time to make because you have to let the bread cool down and then after you pour the icing on it, you have to let it set. Trust us, it’s worth the time!
