Caramel Apple Cinnamon Bread

This Caramel Apple Cinnamon Bread is a delicious and moist apple bread with a hint of caramel flavor that is topped with a cinnamon sugar topping.

The thing I really like about the fall is all the apple flavored desserts.  My mom has a friend who makes different dessert flavored breads and my mom always has some in the house when we come over.  Last time her friend made her a delicious apple bread with a cinnamon sugar topping.  This bread was moist and delicious and just made me think of fall.
I decided to make my own version of her apple bread and made a Caramel Apple Cinnamon Bread.  The apples and the cinnamon are the predominant flavors in this bread but I added some caramel sauce to add a hint of some caramel flavor to the bread, plus I felt that it made the bread more moist.  If you want more caramel flavor you could certainty try adding more, but I really liked the hint of the flavor and the predominant flavor of apple in this delicious bread.
This delicious Caramel Apple Cinnamon Bread is so moist and is a great bread for dessert or snacking.  There is a delicious cinnamon sugar topping on top that gives great flavor to every piece.  The topping is great and is my favorite part and definitely makes the flavor of this bread.  I love how moist this bread is and it is the perfect treat for fall or for any season.  I hope you enjoy this delicious apple bread!
