Apples and caramel, the ultimate flavor combination of fall, come together in this beautiful braided bread recipe, developed in partnership with Red Star Yeast.
What’s better than pulling out a braided loaf of golden brown, freshly-baked bread? Slicing into it to discover it’s stuffed with apples and caramel, of course.
When Red Star Yeast asked me to develop a recipe for them, the idea for this caramel apple braided loaf came to me immediately and I couldn’t wait to bake it. It must have been meant to be, because it turned out perfectly and tasted even better than I’d hoped.
The caramel does make a little bit of a mess as it bakes, but in my opinion that’s part of its charm. And mopping up some of the oozed caramel with a slice of the bread is a must, believe me.
The bread itself is soft, buttery and scented with cinnamon, and the apples are firm and tart. The caramel is a fun twist, helping to keep the loaf moist and adding a seasonal sweetness.
Serve a loaf of this caramel apple bread for brunch or dessert, or even both! Just make sure you have others around to help you eat it.
