Nothing screams Fall like a Caramel Apple, one of the best combinations! Especially a Caramel Apple Surprise Sweet Loaf, a delicious moist quick loaf filled with 3 fresh apples and drizzled with Caramel.
Surprise breads and cakes are so cute and can be so darn delicious. Here in Italy I have eaten a similar sweet loaf but stuffed with fresh pears. I have noticed that Italian really love their pears.
Whether stuffed into an Easy Pear Cake , Surrounded by Chocolate or even eaten raw. To tell the truth it was good but since I am an apple lover, I thought, made in a similar fashion but with Apples a Caramel Apple Surprise just might be better! And yes it was!
Again I used an apple called Royal Gala which has a nice crunch and a not too tart taste. Perfect actually. They are also great for baking because they do not contain too many seeds.
At first I wasn’t going to core it or peel it but then I remembered my family members are a little bit strange when it comes to that, so core and peel is a must.
After making the batter I spooned a little less than half into the loaf pan and then added the 3 cored and peeled apples. I Covered them with the rest of the batter, and then baked it for about 45 to 50 minutes.
I let the Caramel Apple Surprise Loaf completely cool before drizzling with a Caramel Sauce.
To make it really easy, I kind of cheated. I melted some caramels with a little cream, which to tell the truth was pretty darn good.
