Apple Butterscotch Bread


We have a Great Harvest Bread Co. here and I love their caramel apple bread. However, it is very expensive. I think $5 or $6 for a loaf and I just can't hardly justify that expense right now. Their's is a yeast bread but I thought maybe I could make a quick bread that maybe had hints of that taste. I know they use butterscotch chips in theirs so I decided to make Apple Butterscotch Bread! It was really good!

I made it for our Thursday morning coffee time. My friend, Wendy, has several ladies over and we each bring a dish and just have a wonderful morning. Most of the time we all stay until sometime in the afternoon and we just have a great time of food, fun and fellowship. Sometimes we have several ladies, other times it's just a few. Today there were three of us and we pretty much ate this entire loaf of bread between the three of us. It is just really yummy! It comes together very quickly as well.

Apple Butterscotch Bread

1 1/2 cup of all purpose flour
1 tsp of cinnamon
1/2 tsp of baking soda
1/4 tsp of baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup of oil
1/2 cup of sugar
1/2 cup of brown sugar
1 egg, beaten
1/4 tsp vanilla
1 cup of apples (peeled, cored and diced)
1/2 cup of butterscotch chips
may need 2-3 tbsp of milk

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a loaf pan (I used a glass one). In a bowl, combine flour, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Then in another bowl, combine oil, sugar, egg, vanilla and apples. Then add to the dry ingredients and combine. I had to add a little milk here to loosen the dough a tad. You may need to also. Then stir in the butterscotch chips. Pour into loaf pan and bake for 40-45 minutes. Enjoy!

Happy eating!

This looks so tasty and just perfect for fall. If you like butterscotch, you may want to try these Pumpkin-Butterscotch muffins. They are always a huge hit at our house:

That's one good result of this recession. More of us are heading back to the kitchen to do it ourselves. Lovely bread and thanks so much for sharing on Momtrends.
