Fresh Apple Bread with Caramel Glaze

From the kitchen of One Perfect Bite...I've been working my way through the last of the apples we picked a couple of weeks ago. It's become a near mission-like endeavor, as  the apples are starting to soften because I didn't have time to store them properly. Do you remember Buba Gump's summary of shrimp dishes? I swear I could do that with the apple creations that have come from my kitchen recently. Unfortunately, I'd be just as boring but less humorous, so I won't subject you to that. I do, however, want to share the recipe for this flavor-packed  apple bread with you. The recipe is simple and this seasonal treat is delicious, but you will find the bread at its most flavorful  the day after it is baked. If you enjoy moist spice breads, I think you'll love this one. Here is how it is made.

Fresh Apple Bread with Caramel Glaze
...from the kitchen of One Perfect Bite inspired by Betty Crocker

2 medium-sized apples, peeled and cored
1-1/2 cups packed brown sugar
1/2 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup vegetable oil
4 eggs
3 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon nutmeg
Caramel Glaze
2 tablespoons dulce de leche or caramel sauce
1 tablespoons leftover apple liquid
1/3 cup powdered sugar, sifted


1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 9 x 4 x 3-inchloaf pan with baking spray and set aside.
2) With a food processor fitted with a shredding attachment, grate apples. They may also be grated using the large holes of a box grater. Place a colander or mesh sieve over a bowl and dump shredded apples into colander or sieve. Press down hard to squeeze out as much juice as possible. Reserve juice for glaze.
3) Whisk brown sugar, buttermilk, oil, eggs, and apples together until well-combined. Mix in dry ingredients, stirring just until combined.
4) Scrape batter into pan and bake until a toothpick comes out dry, 50-60 minutes. Let sit in pan for 15 minutes, then turn onto a wire rack to cool completely.
5) Meanwhile, whisk together caramel sauce, apple liquid, and powdered sugar until smooth. Drizzle over bread. Yield: 1 loaf (8 to 10 slices)
