Fall is finally coming here, yay! The leaves start turning and the weather starts to get cooler. And we know that it’s time to celebrate this wonderful season: turning on the oven and baking all our favorite fall treats. Are you ready for fall to be ready for fall baking? My answer is yes as always, regardless of season.

I love fall season, not just because it brings so many spiced flavors like cinnamon, nutmeg or pumpkin, apples but also the chilly mornings when you can open the window and enjoy fresh outdoor air. Grab a comfy blanket, a good coffee and one of these comforting fall baking recipes: Apple Bread With Cinnamon Caramel Glaze.



This Apple bread is a quick bread, like my other quick bread recipes such as Banana bread; therefore it requires a little effort and time to make. All you will do is combine the dry ingredients (flour, baking soda, baking powder, sugar and salt, spices) and the wet ingredients (eggs, milk, vanilla extract before folding in chunky apple bits. Then pour into a loaf pan and bake for 40-50 minutes. Let it cool down on a rack before glazing with creamy cinnamon- caramel sauce. 



This caramel glaze used in this recipe has some similarities to Classic Homemade Caramel Sauce, which features the outstanding sweet, buttery caramel flavor and creamy texture. The main ingredients to be used in making this sauce are white sugar, butter, heavy cream and a little bit vanilla extract. However, I think that I should add something to the classic to make it extra fall-spiced because of fall vibes, that’s why I stirred in half of a tablespoon of ground cinnamon. Oh, my goodness, it turned out beyond my expectation. It’s truly a fall-flavored bread!

Servings: 1 loaf / 10-12 servings


For Apple Bread

  • 2 cups (260g) all-purpose flour leveled
  • 1/2 cup (100g) granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon (3g) salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon (6g)  ground cinnamon
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup (60ml) light-flavored vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon (5ml) vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup (120ml) buttermilk
  • 1-2 teaspoons (5-10ml) fresh lemon juice
  • 1 cup chopped fresh apples (equals to 1 large apple)

For Cinnamon Caramel Glaze

  • 1/2 cup (100g) granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon (40g) unsalted butter room temperature
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup (60ml) heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon (6g) ground cinnamon


  • Preheat oven to 350°F/175°C. Grease a 9x5-inch loaf pan.
  • In a large bowl combine eggs, oil, vanilla extract and buttermilk. Whisk well until combined.
  • In a separate bowl, combine the sifted flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, sugar and ground cinnamon. Slowly add the wet mixture into the dry mixture and mix well until combined. Fold in the chopped apple. Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 55-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the bread comes out clean. Remove the bread from the oven and let it cool completely in the pan on a wire rack for 15-20 minutes.
  • Make the cinnamon caramel glaze. In a medium saucepan, add sugar and heat over medium-low. Allow the sugar to dissolve in a few minutes.
  • Increase the heat to medium high. Cook the sugar to caramelize by stirring until it turns amber color. It would take 4-6 minutes depending on your pot and the heat of your stove. Then reduce the heat to medium-low.
  • Add the butter into the sauce and stir until it’s melted. Carefully add the heavy cream and stir until the sauce smooths out. Turn off the heat and add in ground cinnamon and vanilla extract. You may need to whisk it to get out all the clumps. Spread cinnamon caramel mixture evenly over the bread. 
  • Store the bread in an airtight container at room temperature for 3 days or in the fridge for 5 days. Serve at room temperature.


  • If the top is getting too brown while baking, cover the loaf pan with aluminum foil.
  • Making caramel sauce requires your undivided attention. Make sure you have all your ingredients gathered before starting and that you are not distracted. Leaving the caramel alone at any point can cause it to burn.
