Caramel Apple Pecan Bread - A tasty quick bread for the holidays - this easy apple bread is topped with caramel sauce and pecans

This is a moist, rich bread that is full of pecans and apples, and then topped off with more pecans and a sweet caramel sauce.  I have made this both with and without the Caramel sauce, and it is tasty both ways.  My husband and I prefer the slightly less sweet version without the Caramel sauce, but the kids like it better with it.  So last time I made it I doubled the recipe and made one with the sauce and one without – it seemed like a good compromise to me!

  1. Nice to run into a semi-local on the #PinItThurs link-up. I’m over in New Hartford (next door to Utica). This bread looks/sounds delicious, and we definitely have some great apple varieties to work with here in NY. I’m kind of torn when it comes to the caramel sauce. I love the sound of it, but I’m thinking I’d make the sauce, then drizzle it on my slice rather than over the top – or maybe poke some holes so it runs into it? We’ll see. I’ve got a few Macouns on the counter right now and a huge bowl of homemade coconut yogurt in the fridge. Might try it in the next few days and use the yogurt in place of the sour cream. 🙂

  2. Wow this looks incredible! The good voice in my head would say no sauce. But the voice I’d listen to would say sauce, most definitely. Thanks for sharing with See Ya in the Gumbo this week!
