Now that it's officially fall I'm ready to bake everything in sight. One of my favorite things about the season (and trust me I have many faves) is that it's finally cool enough to turn the oven back on. I try my best to keep the baking to a minimum during the summer, or at least do it in the mornings only. The crazy heatwave has finally broken here in Michigan and I couldn't be more excited. Cookies, cupcakes and breads, like this Apple Oat Quick Bread, are cranking out of my kitchen like mad. There is nothing quite like a slice of homemade bread to go with your cup of coffee in the morning, am I right?

This bread has just the right amount of sweetness and is filled with delicious chunks of Honeycrisp apples. It has a hearty texture, thanks to the addition of Flahavan's Irish Steel Cut Oats, making it perfect for breakfast or as a snack.

The caramel sauce that's drizzled over the top of this bread is so simple to make. It takes 5 minutes to be exact. All of the ingredients are warmed in a small saucepan until thickened and after just a few minutes of cooling, it's ready to go!

Apple Oat Quick Bread with Caramel Sauce
Author: Sarah Bates | The Chef Next Door
Makes 1 loaf
PRINT

Ingredients:
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup Flahavan's Irish Steel Cut Oats
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
2 eggs
cup milk
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
2 Honeycrisp apples, peeled, cored, and diced
1/2 cup chopped pecans

For the caramel sauce:
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup heavy cream
3 Tablespoons unsalted butter
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Lightly coat a loaf pan with non-stick baking spray.

In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, oats, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. In a small bowl, beat the oil and sugar until smooth. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition, then add the milk and vanilla. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix until combined. Fold in the apples and pecans. Pour the mixture into the prepared pan and bake 45-50 minutes, or until a cake tester inserted into the center of the bread comes out clean.

Transfer the pan to a wire rack and let cool for 20 minutes. Remove the bread from the pan and allow to cool completely on the rack.  

To make the caramel sauce, bring all of the ingredients to a simmer in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Cook for 5 minutes, until thickened. Remove from the heat and set aside. Cut the cooled bread and drizzle slices with the caramel sauce just before serving.
