Caramel Apple Bread

Welcome Fall! It's beginning to feel a little like fall here in North Carolina, so I knew it was time for this moist and yummy Caramel Apple Bread!  I used Granny Smith apples for this recipe  because I just love their slightly tart flavor, and especially when they are combined with sweet caramel. You could add nuts to this recipe if you would like. Chopped pecans would be tasty! This bread can be made ahead of time, and if you wanted you could drizzle the caramel sauce right before serving, even if you made the bread earlier in the day!

Apples w/ Creamy Caramel Dip~A Tribute to Daniel

This post is a special tribute to a fellow food blogger, Daniel Saraga, who was the author of the wonderful blog, The Haggis and The Herring.  Daniel  passed away recently and he will be missed  by many, including the Secret Recipe Club and the food blogging community. In his honor, I made this recipe from Daniels blog. This is definitely my type of autumn recipe with apples and caramel and pure yumminess! Thank you, Daniel!
Apples with Creamy Caramel Dip
1- 8oz Cream Cheese (softened)
3/4 cup Brown Sugar
2/3 cup crushed Heath Bars
Granny Smith Apples
Lemon Juice (for drizzle)
Caramel Sauce
25 squares Caramel
1/3 cup Whipping Cream

Blend soft cream cheese and brown sugar together.
Place mixture in a small dish or platter.
Make caramel sauce by combining the caramels 
and the whipping cream.
Mix together over low heat, until smooth. 
Sprinkle 1/2 of the Heath candy pieces over the 
cream cheese mixture.
Spread some of the caramel over the top 
of the Heath pieces.
 Sprinkle the remainder of the Heath bar pieces over 
the caramel, and then top the candy pieces with 
more caramel.
Cut your apple into small bite size pieces.
Sprinkle with the lemon to keep the apples
from turning brown.
Enjoy with family and friends!

I changed a few thing in Daniel's recipe. 
Check out his original recipe.

Read Daniel's wife's eulogy to her husband.
It is a touching and heart warming tribute.

Club Baked~Caramel Apple Cake

It is Club Baked time again!! This time we made the Caramel Apple Cake from the book we have been baking through, Baked Explorations by Matt Lewis and Renato Poliafito. This cake is beautiful! There is a picture in the book, and it is the ultimate cake. Triple layer, perfectly iced, no wayward crumbs in the icing~perfect! Mine looks nothing like this one.
Take a look.....
This cake is delicious!
It was moist, and easy to make, although time consuming.
 I did make a few changes in the recipe.
Here is what I did :
I made the cake in this pan, so it is a sheet cake.
 I did make the applesauce. Sooo yummy!!
I did make the caramel sauce, but I did not make the frosting.
 
I was going for something a little less sweet, so I 
used the caramel sauce as a topping.
It is wonderful, and you are going to love this recipe!
It reminds me of fall!


 For the recipe please stop by and see Melissa at her blog, Lulu the Baker.
