Recipe FAQs

What are the best baking apples?

Leave the soft apples behind, baking calls for a hardy apple that can stand up to heat without turning into mush. For this recipe, the tartness of a Granny Smith apple balances the warm cinnamon and sugar. Try Golden Delicious or Honeycrisp apples if you're looking for chunks of sweet apples in every bite.

What If I Don’t Have A Loaf Pan?

You can make this caramel apple bread in another dish, like a cast iron pan or even a muffin tin! (Caramel apple muffins, anyone?) The only thing is that the cooking time may change based on the dish. To avoid overbaked bread, check on it after 30 minutes. Remember, the bread is finished when an inserted toothpick comes out clean!

What if I don’t have Buttermilk?

No worries! You can make your own buttermilk easily by adding ½ teaspoon white vinegar to ½ cup of regular or plant-based milk. Allow to sit for 5 minutes, then continue on with the recipe. You could also use yogurt or sour cream, by stirring in ¼ cup of either and ¼ cup of water into the recipe.
